Klein bags two state medals for HCHS boys

Mile relay ‘DQ’ nullifies fifth-place effort and season-best time in Cyclones’ final state event

 DES MOINES -- Senior Marcus Klein brought home two state medals on Saturday, but the Harlan Community boys left Des Moines with a somewhat sour taste in their  mouths following three days of competition at the 2016 Iowa High School Track and Field Championships.
 Klein placed fourth in the 400-meter dash on Thursday and secured an eighth-place medal in Saturday afternoon’s 200-meter dash final, giving HCHS six points for a 29th-place tie in the Class 3-A team standings.
 The Cyclones appeared to end the meet with another medal when they crossed the finish line fifth in the 4x400 relay. They were disqualified, however, when it was ruled the second runner took too many steps outside of his lane following the first exchange. The DQ nullified an impressive season-best time of 3:24-plus by the group of Levi Preston, Will Lansman, Caleb Rasmussen and Klein.
