MARION — McPherson High’s track and field teams brought home first-place finishes Friday from the Marion Invitational in their respective divisions.

“It was good to get back on top with both teams,” MHS coach Jace Pavovich said. “It has been a while since both boys and girls came home with team victories in a track meet. Despite being banged up a little, our kids fought through it and did well.”

The highlight of the meet was MHS’ Elle Barrett breaking the meet record in the triple jump by bounding 37-7. She also won the long jump.

Other event winners for the girls were Rachel Dossett in the discus, Morgan Howard in the 100 hurdles and the girls 4 x 100 relay team of Barrett, Howard, Rilynn Anderson and Jordan Bailey.

For the boys, Andric McGill doubled by winning the long and high jumps, Jared Ruth won the shot put, Devin Cape won the triple jump and the 4 x 100 relay team took first with runners being Jace Kinnamon, Ben Nikkel, Kollin Goering and Aron Trost.
