McFadden Three Golds for the Tigers

    Reed McFadden paced the Lander Tigers with three gold medals at the Class 3-A state championships last weekend at Kelly Walsh. The Princeton-bound senior cleared 14-4 to win the high jump then swept both hurdle events before finishing third in the 200-meter dash. It was a fitting end to an injury-plagued senior year for the talented athlete.
