Breanna Kressin runs the 100-meter hurdles at a meet on April 27. Kressin finished first in the hurdles at the Quentin Jones Invitational in Thief River Falls on Tuesday.

The Crookston boys' and girls' track and field teams competed at the 37th annual Quentin Jones Invitational in Thief River Falls on Tuesday afternoon. 

For the first time this season, the Pirate girls placed somewhere other than first, scoring 180 points to take second in the four-team field and finish 33.5 behind West Marshall. The boys, with their 115.5 points, took fourth.

Crookston finished first in five individual events. Ally Perreault won the shot put for the third time in four meets, her throw of 30 feet just beating out teammate Libby Salentine in second. In the 100-meter hurdles, Breanna Kressin remained unbeaten on the season by finishing in 16.40 seconds.

Emma Borowicz was victorious in two events: the 200-meter dash (27.55) and the pole vault (nine feet), while claiming second in the 300-meter hurdles as well. Kailee Magsam won the 400-meter dash for a second straight meet, running a 1:02.74.

Ashlyn Bailey finished second in the 100-meter dash. In addition, the Pirates' 4x200-meter relay (Kressin, Bailey, Hayden Winjum and Borowicz) finished second.

Winjum placed third in the triple jump, as did Kressin in the 300-meter hurdles, Salentine in the discus, Cassie Solheim in the 100 meters and Chloe Boll in the 3200 meters.

On the boys' side, Noah Kiel remained unbeaten in the 100 and 200 meters on the season, winning both events (11.40 and 22.96 seconds, respectively). In the 100, Kiel finished just a place ahead of teammate Andrew MacGregor.

Karsten Isaacson took second in both of his events, the 800 meters and the high jump. Greg Gonzalez and Easton Tangquist came in third in the shot put and high jump, respectively.

In addition, the Pirates' 4x100-meter sprint relay took first place in 47.05 seconds.
