The Marceline girls' track team continued to roll on Tuesday afternoon, winning the Gerald Mansfield Invitational by a hefty margin on a warm, high-sky day in Macon.
The Tigers finished with 125.5 points to best runner-up Palmyra by 39 points. Twelve teams, including Brookfield, were in attendance.
Several larger schools made the trip. Kirksville, Marshall, and Moberly -- all of the North Central Missouri Conference -- competed in Macon on Tuesday.
The Marceline boys finished third, and Kirksville dominated the day, nearly doubling the Tigers' 64.5 points.
The Brookfield boys finished eighth, and the girls finished ninth.
The Marceline girls got big points from their sprinters. Abbey Kussman won both the 200 and 400 dashes, and Skylynn Fields was third in the 100-meter dash. Jaylea Bixenman finished second in the 800, and continued her tear through competition in the high jump with a five foot, three inch clearance, defeating the field by seven inches. Runner-up was Brookfield's Rylee Sensenich.
Maycee Edgar's ran 3200 meters in 12:48, a personal record, to earn her second place.
The Marceline girls' 4x200 relay team of Bixenman, Fields, Makenzie Stahl, and Abbey Kussman defeated Kirksville by nearly two seconds at 1:51, and the 4x400 team of Kussman, Stahl, Edgar, and Bixenman blew Moberly away by 15 seconds.
Baylee Jobson won the javelin toss by nine feet, eclipsing the 110-foot mark by an inch. Brookfield's Kate Ewing finished second, nine feet behind her.
Jobson's teammate, Noah Wright, also locked up a javelin title to become a Gerald Mansfield champion. He defeated Brookfield's Jeremy Williams by six feet with a personal record of 156 feet, three inches.
The Linn County-area throwers also earned points in the discus. Brookfield junior Evan Fay's toss of 133 feet, 10 inches was a personal record and earned him second. Marceline senior Dustin Kelly was two feet, three inches behind him for third.
Brookfield's Tim Izard finished second in the 400-meter dash with a time just over 54 seconds, making him the Bulldogs' only top-four finisher in any individual running event.
Marceline junior distance runner Logan Swanson had a day for himself, winning the 3200-meter run and finishing second in the 1600 with a personal record of 4:57. Teammate Nick Cain finished second in the 300-meter low hurdles.
The Brookfield boys' 4x100 relay team, comprised of Brandon Collins, Izard, Tanner Wallace, and Khalil Walker, finished second behind Putnam County.
Marceline finished second in both the 4x400 and 4x800.
Brookfield competes again Friday at 1 p.m. at the Putnam Relays, and Marceline is off until Monday, April 30, when the Tigers travel to Harrisburg for the Lewis & Clark meet.
