The Velva-Drake Aggies are pounding it out in style this season, with the boys and girls divisions taking first at the NW Conference meet in Minot on April 21, and following up with a girls championship and boys second place at the Velva meet last Saturday. “Both the boys and girls were able to win the NW meet, despite being short-handed,” said track coach Dave Peterson. “This is always a meet where a team likes to score points and possibly win. it was a very exciting day for us.” The boys team racked up 98 points to take first place over Watford City’s 91. Drake’s Trenton Bruner added to the excitement by qualifying for state in the triple jump with a winning leap of 40-6.
