GODDARD — McPherson Middle School’s boys swept both divisions at the Goddard Eisenhower Participation Track and Field Meet on Monday.

The seventh-grade boys rode a triple by Ryan Vanderhoof to victory. MMS scored 109 points as Vanderhoof won the 400, 800 and 1,600. Dylan Rinker captured the discus.

The eighth-grade boys totaled 133 points for first, led by doubles by Jonah Clarke (100, long jump) and Riley Koehn (400, high jump). Landon Crews also won the 3,200.

The eighth-grade girls were second with 72 points, paced by a double by Corinne Henry (400, 800) and Kaya Lawrence won the 3,200. The seventh-grade girls were fourth with 37 points, as Katie Berg won the high jump.

 “It was a great day for all of our kids who got a chance to participate in the Tiger Participation Meet,” MMS coach TJ Jackson said. “These meets allow kids to compete that may not have had much experience before. It is fun to see the kids go get PRs and many of the athletes earned their way on to A-team spots with their efforts from Monday. With three meets left in the next week the kids have made it very competitive and are really giving their teams a great chance to win meets with their efforts.”
