PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Marshall girls dominate during Trojan Relays

WORTHINGTON – The Marshall girls and boys track teams competed at the Trojan Relays on Friday. The Tigers dominated the girls side of things as they scored 187.5 points. Jackie Turner highlighted the action by break the Marshall school record in the 3,200 run, with a time of 11:17.55. The Tigers finished no lower than third in all but one event in which they had participants.

It was the first time the Tigers girls track team had won the Trojan relays since 2009.

“We are just really happy and really proud of the girls,” Marshall girls track coach Marie Sample said. “They have been working really hard and we are just estatic.”

With the size of Marshall, they were able to spread their competitors out to many events and Sample feels that is something that payed off.

She felt her athletes were able to stay more relaxed.

“That took a lot of pressure off the kids,” Sample said. “A lot of times when we stack events, they get worn down. Spreading them out really helped.”

Luverne finished a distant second with a score of 140.5 and Montevideo followed with a 115.5 to finish third.

Senior Sydney Griffin finished 1st in the long jump whith a distance of 16-7 1/2 and also took first in the triple jump with a 35-4 3/4.

The Tigers also got sprinting victories from sophomore Rachel Miller in the 100-meter hurdles (17.36) and junior Sarah Buysse in the 100-meter dash (13.57). Buysse also took first in the 400-meter dash with a time of 1:01.81.

The Tigers took home victories in all three relay events and eighth-grader Nichole Sample won the 800-meter run with a time of 2:24.74.

Claire Boersma finished first in the 1,600-meter run with a time of 5:20.98

The boys team came away with a second place finish with a total of 126.5 while Worthington took the meet victory with a score of 131.5.

Luverne finished just behind Marshall in third place with a score of 124.5 while Jackson County Central, Montevideo, New Ulm and Windom Area followed with a 96.5, 78.5, 67.5 and 66, respectively.

On the boys side, senior Andrew Bell finished first in the 1,600-meter run with a time of 4:45.86 and also won the 3,200-meter run with a time of 10:28.03.

Senior Ryan Schultz picked up another victory for the Tigers in the high jump, tallying 5-8.

Senior Drew Tywinski was second in the pole vault with a distance of a career-best 11 feet.

Junior Zack Drum took 2nd in the boys triple jump with a distance of 41-2 and Sam Marshall was second in the 200-meter dash with a time of 23.57.

Marshall boys coach Mike Jacobs felt participating in this meet was good preparation for the conference meet.

“This was a good tune up for the conference meet,” Jacobs said. “Usually we walk out of here a good 30 points behind somebody, so getting within five points of Worthington is a huge improvement. We’re in a good position to challenge for the conference.”
