The Marceline track teams hosted nine other schools on Tuesday afternoon for the Marceline Relays. The Tiger girls brought their hot early-season start into the meet, and finished first in the midseason event, toppling runner-up Salisbury by 13 points and defeating third-place finisher Glasgow by 36.
Marceline's boys finished second, 15 points behind Macon.
Both Brookfield's girls' and boys' teams finished fifth overall.
Marceline finished second in each of the three individual sprints. Skylynn Fields was second in both the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes, and sophomore Abbey Kussman finished runner-up in the 400-meter dash. Renee Sinclair won the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 17.58 seconds. The Marceline girls also won the 4x800 relay by five seconds.
Baylee Jobson was second in the shot put and third in the javelin throw, and Sinclair was second in the long jump.
Brookfield's best finish on the girls side was in the 4x100 relay. Kate Ewing, Precious Starlin, Sydney Wilbeck, and Avery Thompson finished second in the race. Ewing also finished second in the javelin throw, and Wilbeck was third in the long jump.
The Marceline boys raked in the lion's share of their points through field events. Trevor Ganaway's 41-foot chuck of the shot put earned him second place, Dustin Kelly's 128 foot, seven inch discus throw earned him second, and Noah Wright finished second in the javelin. Hayden Dorrell came in second in the pole vault.
The Tigers' 4x800 team of Logan Swanson, Dalton Duff, Levi Terrell, and Nick Cain finished in 9:05 to defeat Macon by more than 10 seconds. Cain finished second in the 300-meter hurdles, and Swanson finished second in both the 1600 and 3200.
The Bulldog boys had two gold medalists on the afternoon. Sophomore Jeremy Williams won the javelin toss with a throw of 152 feet, nine inches -- almost 21 feet better than runner-up Wright. The Brookfield 4x100 team of Brandon Collins, Tim Izard, Khalil Walker, and Tanner Wallace also wrapped up a Relays title with a 46.58-second lap. That same combo placed third in the 4x200.
Wallace also finished third in the pole vault.
Collins and Walker finished back-to-back, second and third, in the 100-meter dash, behind only Linn County's Caleb Schreiner. Schreiner had a day for himself, also winning the 400-meter dash with a personal record of 52.18 seconds and finishing second in the 200.
Brookfield's Evan Fay finished third in the discus in a crowded, 22-man field.
Marceline and Brookfield both compete again on Friday morning at the Brookfield Relays.
