Larson, Peterson win Pan-O-Prog races

More than 300 compete at Casperson Park

Lauren Peterson and Kaytlyn Larson traded championships in the women’s 1- and 4-mile races at Saturday’s Pan-O-Prog Run at Casperson Park in Lakeville.

Peterson, who will be a junior at Farmington High School in the fall and is the reigning Class AA girls 3,200-meter champion in track and field, came in three seconds ahead of Larson in the 1-mile race. Larson, a Lakeville South graduate who will be a junior at Oklahoma State this fall, edged Peterson by three seconds in the 4-mile. The 4-mile was the first race of the Pan-O-Prog Run, with the 1-mile taking place one hour later.

Andrew Thies, a former South Dakota State University runner, won the men’s 1- and 4-mile races. The 4-mile race had 215 finishers, while 128 completed the 1-mile race. The event also included a half-mile fun run for children.
