McPherson High’s JV track and field teams took second and third place, respectively, in a meet it hosted on Thursday at McPherson Stadium contested in sun-splashed conditions.

The MHS boys scored 96 1/2 points to finish behind Andale, which scored 170. The Bullpup girls scored 71 to trail Goddard (96) and Andale (92 1/2).

There were 11 teams in the boys’ field and 10 for the girls.

For the boys, MHS’ Kollin Goering won the 100 meters and ran on a winning 4 x 100 relay team that also included Cade Harris, Gage Shook and Austen Hunt.

Avery Howard doubled for the Bullpup girls, winning the 100 and 100 hurdles. Peyton Johnson won the high jump and Laynee Schroeder captured the 200 meters.

“We had some great individual performances last night at our JV meet,” MHS coach Jace Palvovich said. “All we are concerned about is getting better in every event. The kids did a great job doing just that. We had some substantial personal records out of Laynee Schroeder in the long jump and the 200, Avery Howard in the 100, Christal Regehr in the 800, Edith Garcia in the 300 hurdles and Peyton Johnson in the high jump. On the boys’ side, the following bettered themselves—Mason Thrash in the 200, Cade Harris in the 200 and long jump, Gage Shook in the 200, Nathan Vontz in the 300 hurdles, Thomas Diggs in the shot put, Zach Wankum in the 800 and 1600, and Jake Houghton in the 100 and long jump.”
