Hastings had two competitors at the state track and field meet Friday at Hamline University in St. Paul.

Dan Guelle, an HHS junior, and senior Kyle Francis each qualified for the state's biggest meet.


And just as he had hoped, Guelle got a chance to run twice at the state meet.

He ran in the preliminary round Friday and finished the 400-meter run in 50.52 seconds.

That time was the seventh-fastest in the event, which meant he qualified for the final round.
