All season Clark Fork has boasted of top performers in various events.

Trey Green placed fifth in shot put setting a personal-record of 44 feet, 9 inches.

Sophia Krutilla also showcased her skills with a time of 13.64 seconds in the 100-meter dash.

The Superior track, led by their coach Jamie Toivonen and her staff, who said they worked hard to get their kids ready to perform on the MHSA’s biggest stage.

“It’s a lot bigger of a stage,” Toivonen said in a pre-race interview. “It’s going to be a different atmosphere because they kick the coaches off (the track before the race). For most of the kids (the experience) will be brand new at this time and we have to prepare them on what to expect and give the kids an overview of state. There will be a couple of thousands of people at the state event and it will be way different than any of my kids have experienced.”
