<p>The West Fargo track teams -- both the boys and girls -- put on a dominant display over the weekend and brought home the Eastern Dakota Conference championships.</p>

<p>The boys earned five first-place finishes en route to an overall score of 210.5 points, 57.5 points ahead of the second-place Grand Forks Red River Roughriders.</p>

<p>The girls -- with six first-place finishes -- earned a team score of 196 points, 74.5 points ahead of runner-up Fargo South.</p>

<p>&ldquo;I was very proud of the way our teams competed,&rdquo; head coach Darin McKinnon said. &ldquo;It was truly a team effort and our kids took advantage of the opportunities given to them.&rdquo;</p>

<p>Both teams had a three-event winner. Senior Jaime Heinen-Lugert took first in the 1-meter dash, long jump and triple jump for the boys and junior Amanda Levin was victorious in the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes.</p>

<p>The three other individual victories for the girls came from senior Kaley Stotz in the pole vault, senior Christina Bruenjes in the triple jump and eighth-grader Akealy Moton in the shot put.</p>

<p>The boys&rsquo; other first-place finishes came from seniors Jordan Bishoff in the high jump and Austin Albrecht in the 3200-meter run.</p>

<p>The Packers will now head to Bismarck on Friday for the North Dakota State Tournament.</p>

<p>&ldquo;We are looking forward to getting out to Bismarck this weekend,&rdquo; McKinnon said. &ldquo;This is why we train and work so hard throughout the course of the season, to have the opportunity to compete at a meet of this level.</p>
