BISMARCK -- Friday was like coming home for Kidder County's Kennedy Harter.

Harter, a sophomore for the Kidder County girls track and field team, was one of a handful of South Central and Southeast Conference athletes to kick off the 2021 Class B State Track and Field Meet at the Bismarck Community Bowl on Friday.

"It's amazing," Harter said of being back at the Bowl. "I love it."

Harter ended up placing fifth in the Class B girls' long jump contest -- the meet's first final -- with a jump of 16 feet, 3.25 inches. The sophomore's signature event will come tomorrow in the triple jump. Harter is the current state titleholder in the triple jump and is hoping to keep the title to her name for the next three years.

"(Placing) in long jump gets my head in a better place so hopefully that carries over to tomorrow," Harter said. "It's good, a good motivation for triple tomorrow."
