Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW) – McDonell Central’s Charlie Bleskachek signed his letter of intent Monday, to run both track and cross country at division 2 Concordia-St. Paul.

Bleskachek is a four-time state qualifier in cross country and a six-time all-conference runner in track. His accomplishments include three state qualifications, along with three state medals.

His decision was simple; to go where it all fit.

“They seem really genuine,” says Bleskachek. “I met the coaching staff back in September and they really like what they do. They seem really cool and very easy going so it’ll be easy for me to transition into a team like that.”

His current coach knows the Golden Bears are getting an all-around quality guy.

“He does have such ability in range, I just can’t imagine to see how good he’s going to be when he focuses just on track,” says McDonell Central’s track & field coach Marty Bushland.  “Just a great kid. Probably a better person than a runner, that just means the college that he;s chosen has picked up a great athlete so I look forward to watching him at that level.”
