HAYS — McPherson Middle School’s seventh-grade girls and eighth-grade boys prevailed over high-powered fields Thursday during the Hays Track and Field Invitational.

Chelsea Stoppel tripled for the seventh-grade girls as she won the 100, 200 and 400. Brooke Miller captured the high jump and Jayma O’Quinn won the 100 hurdles. The 4 x 200 relay team of Miller, O’Quinn, Jordan Bailey and J’Anae Spaich also took top honors.

The eighth-grade boys had two relays take first, but placed in many events to take their title. The 4 x 100 relay team included Andrew Powell, Forrest Potter, Austen Hunt and Darrius Armstrong. The sprint medley team consisted of Tyson Stites, Gunnar Reiss, Ben Nikkel and Devin Cape.

The eighth-grade girls took second. Aislinn Hughes doubled in the 100 and 100 hurdles, while other winners included Kenzie Goering in the triple jump, Elle Barrett in the long jump and the 4 x 100 relay team of Barrett, Goering, Hughes and Bailea Crist. 

The seventh-grade boys had only four placers, but Gabe Hoover was a highlight by winning the 1,600.
