Custer's Kellyn Kortemeyer and Matayah Yellow Mule of Rapid City Central each won a pair of events to lead away in a special field events version of the Track-O-Rama Friday at O'Harra Stadium.

Yellow Mule came away with wins in the long jump at 18-11½ and the triple jump at 38-8¼.

Other winners in the girls' division were: Ella Peterson of Stevens in the javelin (91-10), a three-way tie in the pole vault at 9-0 between Brekkan Lockhart of Stevens, Josey Wahlstrom of Custer and Ciara Sieveke of Central, and another three-way tie in the high jump at 4-11 between Alexa Morin-Baxter of Stevens, Emma Thurness of Stevens and Megan Baloun of Stevens.

Winners in the boys' division were: Isaac Perkins of Rapid City Stevens in the shot put (50-3), Jason Maciejczak of Douglas in the discus (158-0), Jaxon Morrison of Central in the javelin (121-3), David Severson of Douglas in the high jump (5-11), Sumner Griffin of Central in the pole vault (12-0), Aiden Giffin of Belle Fourche in the long jump (21-5½) and Jacob Hafner of Stevens n the triple jump (41-4)
