Daniel and Jonathon Burkhalter part of the Bison track machine
By Rich Winter
Very early in the season but after Tuesday's performance in Kadoka,
A lot of folks didn't venture over to the field events Tuesday. If they had, they would have seen a couple of monstrous performances from Bison junior, Shane Collins.
Collins won the shot-put 49'1 and the discus 156-feet. Both of those performances are tops in the Class B ranks this season.
Class B shot put:
2.Howard, Jacob48'02.00"Sully Buttes
3.Johnson, Cliffey45'11.50"Andes Central/Dakota Christian
Discus Throw - 136'04.00"
3.Howard, Jacob140'06.00"Sully Buttes
It was sort of a light day for SDSU bound, Daniel Burkhalter. The senior ran a 10:11 3200 meters to automatically punch his ticket to the state track meet. In addition, he inched the medley team to victory with a 3:51, good enough for an automatic qualifier to the state meet.
Alright, so Collins is ranked No. 1 in the shot put and discus.
Burkhalter ranked No. 1 in the 800/1600 and 3200 and now the medley team has the top time in the state.

Chester Area looks to be the favorite in Class B but Bison has some options, some talent and should be there at the end of the year.
