(6-5-21) Minster won the school’s first ever boys D III Track and Field State Title at Westerville North.

It all came down to the last event…Coach Larry Topp’s 4×400 relay team needed to place ahead of McDonald as they were trailing the Blue Devils 35-31. The Wildcats made sure of picking up the title by winning the race and picking up 10 points and with McDonald placing 5th it was enough to clinch the title by just two points 41-39.
