By Travis Mounts

The Argonia Raiders took part in the Norwich track and field meet last Friday. The Raiders picked up six medals at the meet, which awarded points to the top six finishers in each event.
Argonia athletes picked up a pair of second-place medals. Taylor Viohol took second in the girls 800 meters. She earned a second medal, taking fourth in high jump.
Kaden Dickerson placed second in boys discus. Noah Phillips picked up a pair of medals, including a third-place finish in shot put. Landon Roblin medaled in high jump.
The Raiders were scheduled to compete on Tuesday at Central’s meet in Burden. Argonia will now be off until next week, taking part in Thursday’s track meet at Pretty Prairie. The meet normally draws a number of teams that will be in the Raiders’ regional, giving them a good measuring stick a couple of weeks before the meet that determines State qualifiers.
