It was another record-setting day for the Custer High School track team last Friday at the Queen City Classic Track Meet in Spearfish, as Jared Thomsen set a new school record in the 110 hurdles, one of several strong performances by the team.
Thomsen won the event in a time of 15.21, beating the old school record of 15.23 set by Chad Ostenson in 1987.
Thomsen was also on a pair of relay teams that qualified for the state meet. He joined with Cody Martinz, Chase Glazier and Brennan Witt to win the medley relay in a time of 3:39.78, and Glazier, Witt and Joel Thomsen to place second in the 1600 relay with a time of 3:31.08. Also qualifying for state was the 3200 team of Glazier, Witt, Cody Herman and Logan Huntington with a time of 8:18.07. Rounding out the state qualifiers at the meet was Joel Thomsen, who posted a time of 42.39 in the 300 hurdles, good for fifth place.
