MILBANK - Three Mitchell High School track and field athletes competed at the Milbank Invite on Tuesday in Milbank.

Carly Haring cleared 5-foot-5 and won the high jump competition, while Kyla Crago and Courtney Miller each ran in special event 400-meter dashes. Crago ran her best time of the season (59.9 seconds) and took second place, while Miller also ran his fastest time of the season and placed fifth (54.1).

"It was a great experience for them and good for them to get in the spotlight," said MHS head coach Joe Shepardson, whose brother is the athletic director in Milbank and that led to the meet being added to the schedule.

Shepardson added Haring took more attempts at clearing 5-7 in the high jump and added the more opportunities she gets the better. Last week, Haring set the school record and achieved a top-10 mark in the state history by reaching 5-8.

"Carly keeps climbing the ladder and keeps performing well," Shepardson said. "She just needs to keep seeing jumps at 5-7 and keep repeating."
