Both Marceline track teams found success at the Brookfield Relays on Friday morning and afternoon, while the host had modest success as well.
The Marceline boys finished second behind Palmyra, and the Bulldogs were eight points behind for third. The Tiger girls were narrowly topped by Trenton, and Brookfield's girls finished fifth. In girls' competition, Trenton, Marceline, and third-place finisher Palmyra scored well more than the remainder of the field combined.
In total, fifteen teams travelled to Brookfield on Friday.
On the girls' side, Marceline's day was highlighted by Jaylea Bixenman breaking the nine-year-old high jump record with a five foot, four inch clearance, breaking the previous mark held by Katie Gladbach by an inch. Bixenman also won the 800-meter run.
Marceline's Renee Sinclair won the triple jump, and Baylee Jobson won the javelin with a launch of 117 feet, two inches. Brookfield's Kate Ewing was a foot and a half behind her to finish second in the 27-girl field.
Marceline's girls' 4x800 team won, as did the 4x200 and 4x400 relay teams later on in the day.
Marceline junior Maycee Edgar won the 3200 meters.
On the boys' side, Brookfield's Tanner Wallace won the pole vault and Marceline's Hayden Dorrell earned second. Brookfield sophomore Jeremy Williams locked up another javelin victory, and Marceline's Noah Wright finished third in the crowded field.
