ST. PAUL – Things didn’t go exactly as planned for Austin eighth grader Paiton Schwab at the Class AA state track and field meet Saturday.
Schwab fell behind early in the 1600-meter run and she finished in 17th place with a time of 5:25.04. Shakopee freshman Tess Misgen won the race with a time of 4:50.78.
“They all started off real fast” Schwab said. “I tried to stick with them the best I could. It was definitely a different kind of race, trying to catch up.”

Schwab was the youngest runner in the field at state and the experience should help her towards next season.
“It was a really fun experience,” Schwab said. “It’ll help me do better next season.”
