Duffield leads Eagles at South Dakota Meet

February 4, 2006

Chadron State senior Joel Duffield won both the 200 and 400 meters and anchored the winning 1600-meter relay while leading the Eagles at the Graphic Edge Division II Indoor Track and Field Meet in the Dakota Dome at the University of South Dakota on Saturday.

Duffield had a career beat of 22.15 in the 200 and took the 400 in 49.08. He won both races comfortably.

Joining the Morrill High graduate on the winning relay were Jake Brummer, Ryan Mader and C.J. Dean. Mader also was fourth in the 500.

Other highlights for the Eagles included Danny Woodhead’s victory in the 60-meter dash. Both Woodhead and South Dakota’s Stefan Logan were timed in 6.93 seconds, but Woodhead got the call at the tape. Both were on several All-American football teams this past fall, when Woodhead rushed for 1,769 yards in 10 games and Logan ran for 1,751 in 11 contests.

Another standout for the Eagles was Jack Sides’ victory in the high jump at 6-9.

The Chadron State women were led by seconds by Jacqueline Wells in the weight throw and Emily Volkmer in the triple jump, but both of their marks were well below their personal bests.

Wells threw the weight 53-9, but set the school record of 61-9 last year. Volkmer went 38-1 ½ in the triple jump, but hit 39-4 a week ago at the Dave Little Invitational at Black Hills State.

Wells also was third in the shot put.

The Eagles will host their annual Alumni Meet this Saturday.
