Junior Amber Hines won the discus and senior Derek Toso took second in two events to lead the Little Falls girls and boys track and field teams at Saturday’s Central Minnesota Mega Meet in Sauk Rapids.

Hines entered the finals of the discus as the eighth seed, throwing a distance of 94-feet, 3-inches in the preliminaries.

But she went on to obliterate that mark in the finals, in the process leaping over the seven finalists in front of her to take the event with a throw of 124-feet, 2-inches to lead the Flyers girls to 12th place.

Hines also added a sixth-place finish in the shot put with a distance of 33-feet, 9-inches.

Little Falls also received points from the sixth-place 4×800-meter relay team of junior Mattia Hendrickson, freshman Heidi Moe, senior Ingrid Floersheim and sophomore Maria Hauer (10:24.99) and Hendrickson in seventh in the 3,200 (12:02.97).

In the boys competition, Toso took second in the 100 (11.36) and as part of the 4×400 relay team that also included junior Garrett Horejsi, senior Luke Pennington and Tim Infinger (3:35.91), leading Little Falls to seventh.

Toso also finished fourth in the 400 (51.55) and Pennington earned fourth in the 300 hurdles (41.37).

Little Falls junior Nathan Adamietz springs over the bar during the pole vault at Saturday's Central Minnesota Mega Meet. Adamietz finished at 11-feet to place 10th.

Also placing in the top eight for the Flyers were junior Isaiah Korver in fifth in the triple jump (5-feet, 10-inches); junior Seth Wester in sixth in the discus (135-feet, 1-inch); Pennington in seventh in the 110 hurdles (16.2) and senior Preston Zimny in seventh in the 1,600 (4:39.95).
