WILLMAR — The Willmar track and field team should consider purchasing long-term housing in Stillwater.

For the ninth year in a row, the Willmar girls are heading back to the Class AA True Team state meet and the boys, the two-time defending state champions, are making their third-straight trip. The Class AA True Team state meet will take place May 18 and 19 at Stillwater High School.

The girls won with 619 points, easily outscoring second place-Orono by an overwhelming 93 points in the Section 6AA meet Tuesday afternoon at Hodapp Field in Willmar. The boys hardly had more trouble, scoring 620 points to top Hutchinson's 556.

The girls won three of the four relay events to account for 99 of their points and also featured winners and second-place finishers in the 800, 1600 and 3200. Serena Monson took the 800 title, just ahead of teammate Amel Dayib while Heidi Schmitz and Leah Hansen finished one-two in the 1600 and 3200.

Cayle Hovland continued to send shot puts and discus into outer space, or thereabouts, winning both events by a comfortable margin. On the boys side, Cameron Murphy won the discus for the Cardinals with a 140-07, edging Litchfield's Steven Orzolek by two feet.

Orzolek won the shot put with his best throw of 53 feet, five inches.

Alec Nibaur won the 110 meter hurdles and the 200 meter dash for the Cardinals, joined by teammate Adnan Mohumed as multi-event winners for Willmar. Mohumed won the 800 and the 1600.

Noah Slagter capped a strong day for the Cardinals with a winning long jump of 21 feet, three inches and a second place finish in the triple jump.
