Sarah Buysse took home victories in the 100-meter dash (13.09), the 200 dash (25.56) and the 400 dash (1:02.13). The girls side also got victories in the 3,200-meter run in the form of Jackie Turner with a 11:28.07, the 4×100-meter relay with the team of Samantha Gianelli, Hannah Bock, Rose Andersen and Sydney Griffin with a time of 54.04, the 4×800-meter relay with the game of Claire Boersma, Sydney Blomme, Andersen and Nichole Sample clocking a 10:01.79 and Sydney Griffin took the long jump with a distance of 15-4.

Andrew Bell won the 1,600-meter run and the 3,200-meter run with times of 4:45.33 and 10:22.55 respectively. Ryan Schultz took the win in the high jump with a height of 5-10.

Both coaches were very happy with the way their team’s performed.

“We spread everyone out and we had kids show a lot of heart,” Marshall girls coach Marie Sample said. ” It came right down to the last two events and we had a lot of people step up,from our seventh graders up to our seniors. We’re very excited right now.”

The boys team made a mad run at the end, but couldn’t quite close on Luverne.

Coach mike Jacobs actually thought the boys had the title, but was off on the initial calculations. He was still very pleased with how his team performed.

“Our boys showed a lot of heart today,” Jacobs said. “It was a very cold day and they fought through a lot. We were able to get points in a lot of events, but didn’t quite get all of them. You need to score in every event if you want to win a conference title.”
