Brookfield's track and field teams travelled to Monroe City for the Clarence Cannon Conference meet on Monday morning, and had a hard time finding success.
The Bulldog boys tied Highland for seventh out of nine teams with 50 points, and the girls finished seventh outright with 46 points. Centralia was conference champion on both sides. The Panther girls ripped through the field, winning by 73.5 with Palmyra as runner-up. The Centralia boys, however, defeated Monroe City by a measly half point to take the Clarence Cannon title.
Tim Izard was the only finisher in the top five in individual running events for the Brookfield boys, placing fifth in the 400-meter dash with a time of 54.88 seconds.
The Bulldogs' 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams both finished third.
Jeremy Williams hurl of 151 feet, 11 inches earned him second in the javelin, and Evan Fay was fourth in the discus throw.
On the girls' side, Leslie Dean was the only top-five finisher in individual running events. She finished fourth in the 3200-meter run in 13:19. Dean also finished sixth in the 1600.
Freshman Zoe Chrisman placed fourth in the discus with a throw of 92 feet, six inches. Kate Ewing finished third in the javelin with a 104-foot, 11-inch spear.
The Bulldogs compete again in the district meet on Saturday, hosted by Putnam County. Field events in Unionville are slated to begin at 9:30 a.m.
