Nodaway Valley’s Jared Corder finished second to three-time state champion Kyle Dolecheck of Mt. Ayr in the 800m run at the state track meet last Saturday.  The Wolverine junior crossed in 1:59.03, breaking the school record of 2:01.13 set by TJ Bower in 2014.  Corder finished third in the 800m last season.

Corder later finished 15th in the 1600m, finishing in 4:48.98.

Nodaway Valley, which finished tied for 34th place with eight points, had several other outstanding performances at state.

Brycen Wallace finished ninth in the 3200m run with a new personal best time of 10:19.91.  Wallace beat his previous best time by over five seconds.

Shane Breheny made his third straight trip to state in the 3200m and had his best finish, crossing in 10th place with a time of 10:22.80.  Breheny has been battling a ligament injury all season long.

The 4x800m team of Corder, Ryan Jensen, Heath Downing and Brayten Funke finished 13th in 8:36.08, just one second off their personal best time.
