Spring sports season is here


Spring weather is here, and track and field season has begun for the Lake Preston Divers. Practice began March 7, and frigid temperatures kept practices indoors until last week, when they were able to move them outside.

Ten girls and 14 boys in grades 8-12 have signed up for the 2022 team. The Lake Preston track and field team includes Stella Deknikker, Faith Steffensen, Kason Anderson, Colton Nelson, Bergen Woodcock, Tyler Jurrens, Josh McMasters, A.J. Wienk and Ashton Wienk; Jaxon Long, Ryne Greene, Jake Larsen, Jonah Denison, Milli Waikel, Hadlee Holt, Angel Henry, Amelia Holland, Jocelyn Steffensen, Ben Curd, Peyton Hope, Danielle Odegaard, Grace Hirschkorn and Chris Tvinnereim and managers Marissa Rober and Savanna Perkins.

The first scheduled meet is April 1 in Redfield.

The team is coached by Brock Dufek and Jalen Kaufman, this being the first year for both.

“The athletes have been practicing hard,” Dufek said.
