Chase Fossum, completing a high jump at the Glendive meet Saturday, didn't place in the event at the Top 10 but finished fourth in the 400.

It's the meet everyone has been gearing up for.

The Northeastern Top 10 Meet was held in Glasgow on Tuesday that showcased the best track and field athletes in the area.

The Scotties themselves had plenty of representation in the meet and as has come expected with Glasgow track and field, fans of the team didn't leave disappointed.

In the girls track events, Megan Dailey took third place in the 100-meter race with a time of 13.13.

Some people might think that number is unlucky, but for Dailey it did just fine.

In the 400 race, Glasgow's Alex Simensen missed the podium by one position as she finished fourth with a time of 1:05.18.

Josie Braaten took home second place in the 1,600 race with a time of 5:48.55. Braaten followed up her 1,600 performance with a first place finish in the 3,200 and a time of 6:16.38.

Amy Briegenzer competed in the 100 hurdles for the Scotties and didn't disappoint with a second place finish and a time of 16.28, edging out Hinsdale's Bethany Lacock by .17 of a second.

Briegenzer didn't see the same results in the 300 hurdles, but still finished in a respectable fourth place with a time of 52.98.

The Glasgow girls relay team finished first in both the 100 and 400 relay. The 100 relay saw Glasgow edge out second place Scobey by three tenths of a second.

Megan Dailey once again excelled in her areas of expertisee. Dailey took first place in both the high jump and long jump.

In the high jump, Dailey recorded a mark of 5 feet, 2 inches. The mark is one inch below her personal best. For the long jump, Dailey recorded a mark of 16-11.50. Dailey then competed in her final jump of the day, the triple jump, with a second place finish behind Lacock with a mark of 35-02.00.

Dana Hughes had another impressive outing in the shot put event. Hughes took second place with a mark of 35-06.00. Her throw was three inches behind first place finisher Britney Nelson from Chinook who marked at 35-09.00.

For the boys events, Ryan Grandchamp keeps on trucking in the 100 and 200 races.

Grandhcamp finished second in the 100 with a time of 11.25. He then followed that performance up with a fourth place finish in the 200 with a 23.47 mark.

Chase Fossum stirred up a fourth place finish of his own in the 400 with a time of 54.35. Bridger Sanders faired a little better in the 800 with a third place finish and a time of 2:12.39.

In the 300 hurdles, Ethan Etchart finished fourth with a 46.32 mark.

In the relay events, Glasgow was held out of the top four in the 100 relay, but did manage to come in second place in the 400 relay as they "A" team finished with a time of 3:45.00.

In the long jump event, Grandchamp continued his winning ways as he took first with a mark of 21-06.50.

Glasgow was held out of the top four in the triple jump, high jump and pole vaulting events.

The Scotties didn't see a top four finisher in each of the shot put or discus events on the boys side.

Glasgow did manage to get two of their athletes to place in the top four in the javelin.

Senior Lane Herbert took second in the event with a mark of 149-09.

Junior Jason Thibault finished two spots behind Herbert with a mark of 147-03.
