Bykerk competes at Classic meet
NORFOLK — Osmond High School junior Mason Bykerk was invited to run the 3,200 meters at the 25th running of the Norfolk Track and Field Classic. His invitation didn’t arrive until Tuesday afternoon, April 23, when the final scratches were made. Mason, as well as other Tiger athletes, were just off of the qualifiers’ list.
The field of 12 runners started fast, but did thin out after the second lap. Mason moved up to sixth place after the fourth lap, or first mile. The pace quickened again and Mason slipped back, still running strong. He finished the race in 12th place, but ran his second fastest time ever at 11:09.57.
