Katherine Geist took first place in the 3200m.

    After earning a wild card bid to the True Team State Meet, the Pirates skipped their regularly-scheduled meet in Warren on Thursday, May 16 to make the trek to Stillwater and compete with some the best in the state.

    With a field of 12 schools, Crookston tallied 353.5 points to take 10th. Minnewaska Area won the championship at 549.5.

    Katherine Geist (Jr.) placed the highest of any Pirate winning gold in the 3200m run with a time of 11:09.02. The next closest racer crossed the finish line 63 seconds later.

    The time fell .47 seconds short of a school record of 11:08.55 set in Park Rapids this year.

    Geist also took second in the 1600m missing first place by 3.78 seconds but running her season-best time. Her time of 5:07.90 fell one second shy of her personal and school record she set at the Individual State Meet in 2018.

    Emma Borowicz (So.) set season-bests in each of her three individual events, 300m hurdles, pole vault and 200m, and also collected 63.5 points to lead the team. Borowicz earned silver in the hurdles (47.46) and tied for third in pole vault (8-06). The sophomore capped off her incredible day with sixth place in the 200m at 27.24.

    Another top-three individual included Amelia Cordova (7th Grade), who tied for third in the pole vault with Borowicz at 8-06.

    The 3200m relay team also brought home bronze with a time of 10:30.80.
