Humboldt's Dan Sanders was upset in the mile run at the State Class A track meet held at Eagle Grove Saturday, May 20, when Dennis Modracek, Prairie of Cedar Rapids, edged Dan in the final 80 yards for the title as both finished well under the previous standard of 4:27.6 by Larry Kramer of Belmond in 1966. Dan came back to win the 880 yard run easily in 1:59.6 to provide Humboldt with ten of its 11 points. The only other Humboldt qualifier that placed at Qie state meet was sophomore Tony Nissen -who cleared 12-6 in the pole vault competition on his second try, good for fifth place and one point Humboldt 1 s 11 points placed them eighth in a field of 79. Tony had some difficulty during the day as be needed three attempts to make 12-0. Duane Sullivan of Shenandoah, the only vaulter that made a height above 12-6, set a new record with a 13-8 vault. The remaining positions were determined on number of attempts as the next four vaulters all made 12-6. In the mile run, Sanders took the lead coming out of the first turn. Modracek, who has been chasing Dan for two years, stayed a yard behind as the two stead- fly left the rest of the runners behind, running the first quarter in :60.1 and the first half in 2:07.1. Modracek, whose fastest previously recorded mile was 4:26.6, refused to fall back and, with about 120 yards remaining, went to the outside and turned on the steam. He caught Sanders about 80 yards from the tape and won going away in 4:18.6, a tenth of a second faster than the state record set by Doug Smith of Sioux City Central at the State AA meet in Fort Dodge last year. The time qualifies him as the third fastest miler in the state this year. Sanders finished in 4:20.3 to record his fastest ever mile run, fourth fastest in the state. Earlier in the year, Sander's 4:23.9 set at the Holstein Relays, ranked him second only to Smith in the state, both are juniors. A third junior, Jerome Howe of Treynor, a Class C school, owns the second fastest time, 4:17.2, which he set while chasing Smith at the Drake Relays. Smith has run 4:12.8 this year. During the State A meet, nine new records were established and another tied, including Mod- racek in the mile; Lenny Dunham of State Center in the broad jump, who edged second place finisher Jack Beddall of Jefferson by a quarter of an inch as . both were over the old standard; Dave Mockridge of DeWitt in the shot put; Duane Sullivan in the pole vault; Tom Graves of Cherokee in the 120 high hurdles; Storm Lake in the 440 (tie) and 880 yard relays; and Paul Rogers, Central Lyon of Rock Rapids in the 440 yard dash. In the mile relay, won by Cherokee, the top three finished under the record while in the medley relay, not only did the top three finishers break the old standard, but the fourth place team just missed the mark by one-tenth of a second. Competitors barely missed setting records in four other events as David Larsen of Harlan high jumped 6-0, a half inch under the record he set last year; Mike Lint of Anamosa missed the 100 yard dash record by one-tenth of a second and the 220 yard dash mark by three- tenths of a second; and Tom Graves missed the old 180 yard low hurdles standard by one- tenth of a second. Competitors from the Eagle Grove district, in which Humboldt competed, that placed (other than Humboldt) included Fred Beaver of Sac City, third in the shot; Terry Nelson of Belmond, third in the discus; Meyer of Iowa Falls, first in the discus; Tim Newberry of Fort Dodge, St. Edmonds, third in the high jump; Tim Roberts of Belmond, fourth in the high jump; and Mark Blackman of Eagle Grove, fourth in the pole vault. The district also placed in the running events with Clear Lake and Eagle Grove fourth and fifth respectively in the two-mile relay; Clear Lake fifth in the medley relay; and Eagle Grove fifth in the mile relay.
