East Grand Forks Senior High was led by its senior standout again Monday when it hosted the Lions track and field meet.

Ashley Tingelstad won the 100 and 200 meters and led off a winning 4x400 relay team.

But the Green Wave showed their balance, sweeping the relays and receiving individual titles from Jaclyn Scanlan in the 400, Alex Arroyo in the long jump and Kayleigh Kuznia in the triple jump.

Arroyo, a seventh-grader, also finished second in the triple jump.

"She's been doing really well for us," Senior High girls coach Liesa Hanson said of Arroyo.

So has Tingelstad, the defending state Class A champion in the 100, 200 and 400.

Shaking off tightness in a thigh muscle earlier this month, Tingelstad looks to be in form entering Thursday's subsection meet in Ada.

"She is a competitor," Hanson said. "When you have kids like that, you never hardly worry much about them. They go out there and compete. She doesn't like to lose."

Led by Tingelstad, the Green Wave cruised to the girls team title with 245ยฝ points. Runner-up Crookston had 147.

Faith Kruchowski of Red Lake County and Shelby Folkers of Crookston joined Tingelstad as winners of two individual events.

Kruchowski took the 800 and 1,600 and Folkers won the discus and shot put.

Conner Jevning won the 100 and 200 to lead the Green Wave boys team to the title.

Senior High finished with 216 points, compared with runner-up West Marshall's 175. The Green Wave also received titles from its 4x800 relay team and Beau Scheving in the shot put, Brandon Brekke in the high jump and Alex Miller in the 1,600.

West Marshall's JJ Safranski won three titles, the long jump, triple jump and discus.
