Athletes from local high schools represented the Marion County area well at this past weekend’s Iowa High School Track and Field Championships in Des Moines. Area student athletes qualified for an astounding 71 events, which were highlighted by state championships for Lindsay Hoehns of Twin Cedars in the Long Jump and Brett Bogaard of Pella in the 100 Meter Dash. Those performances helped lead the Pella boys squad to a fourth place finish in the Class 3-A team standings, while the Twin Cedars girls finished in a three-way tie for fifth place.
