Bucs take 5th, Zebedee injured

April 29, 2012
Faribault County Register

The Bucs won two relays at the Maple River Invite held April 24, but one of the victories proved to be costly.

The 4 x 200-meter relay squad of Nick Beattie (23.7), Isaac Darrington (23.1), Jacob Olson (23.10) and Jake Zebedee (25.2) finished with a winning time of 1:35.36.

However, Zebedee pulled a hamstring while running the anchor leg.

The injury may have occurred during the exchange of the baton.

Zebedee, who usually has a split of under 23 seconds, pulled up with about 70 yards left in the race

The Bucs had such a large lead that he was able to limp the rest of the way for a first-place finish.

"It's not a season-ending injury. I think in time he'll be O.K.," says Jake's father, Steve.

Zebedee scratched himself from two other events, including the pole vault competition.

On Wednesday, Zebedee was examined at a Mankato clinic.

"They told us it was a slight pull. It could have been worse," says Steve. "As to when he'll be back, it's a day-to-day thing."

The 4 x 100-meter relay also took first place, in helping BEA to a fifth-place team finish.

Beattie, Justin Ritter, Jacob Olson and Darrington combined for a winning time of 45.03 seconds.

In the 4 x 400, Jacob Olson (52.9), Taylor Olson (55.1), Steven Plocker (56.9) and Bailey Olson (54.8) registered a second-place time of 3:40.770.

BEA had only one individual winner, Beattie in the 200-meter dash in 23.02 seconds. He also took third in the long jump with a leap of 18 feet, one-half inch.

Josh Johnson uncorked a toss of 48 feet, 2 inches to place second in the shot put. That puts him No. 5 all-time outdoors.

Sam Lee was fourth with a distance of 45 feet, 2 inches, and he was also fourth in the discus with 116 feet, 3 1/2 inches.

Taking third in the triple jump with a distance 36 feet, 1 1/2 inches was Baily Olson, while Darrington cleared the bar at 5 feet, 6 inches to take third in the high jump.
