Senior High finished with 458½ points. Detroit Lakes came in second place with 365½, followed by Fergus Falls with 363½.

In the boys division, Senior High missed the true team state meet by the narrowest of margins.

Perham won the team title with 380½ points, followed by the Green Wave with 380.

The team title came down to the final race, the 4x800 relay. Perham edged Senior High by 1.53 seconds.

"It was a tremendous effort," Senior High boys coach Kirk Misialek said, "but we've got some bummed kids. The crowd was going crazy (during the 4x800). It was classic."

The Green Wave boys had four first-place finishers, all in field events.

Brandon Brekke won the high jump with a leap of 6 feet. Luke Misialek won the long jump with a leap of 19-9½. Joey Hanson won the discus with a throw of 142-8. Cody Grabow won the shot put with a toss of 46-0¼.
