Jordan track

Thursday was a busy and mostly successful day for Jordan sports.

The track and field teams dominated its subsection meet while the Hubmen baseball team won its first playoff game of the season. The one downer was that the Jaguars softball team lost to Le Sueur-Henderson in the section playoffs and is now one-loss away from having its season end.

The Jordan track and field teams qualified 32 athletes for next weekend's Section 2A track meet.

The Hubmen team will send 21 to the section meet and the Jaguars 11.

The Hubmen won the subsection title with 261 points. Glencoe-Silver Lake was second at 120.

Jordan's girls track and field team scored 184 points to win the subsection title. Glencoe was second with 161.5 points.
