Magner to the finals in the 110 hurdles for the Decorah boys

It’s been nine years since the Decorah boys had a finalist in the 100 hurdles. Andrew Magner ended that streak Friday morning at the state track meet.

The Viking junior finished with a time of 15.11 which was fifth fastest in the preliminaries. “It went pretty well,” said Magner. “I felt I got out of the blocks fast and when I didn’t see anybody in front of me after eight hurdles I felt pretty good.”

Magner was a state qualifier in this event last year. This is year he’s a state finalist. “I think the weight room was the main reason for my improvement. I had the form and technique my freshman and sophomore year and now I have the speed and quickness to go along with it.”

The last Decorah finalist in the 110 hurdles was Robby Jewell who finished 7th in 2010.
