Kristen Herzet turned in strong performances against tough competition Friday at Smoky Valley, claiming the lone Marion championship with a 129-feet, 8-inch throw in discus.
Her discus is progressing well and she has made herself one of the top throwers in the state,” Coach Grant Thierolf said.
Erika Hess placed second in pole vault by clearing the bar at 9 feet.
Tyler Arocha soared 20-4 for second in long jump on the boys’ side, and Jack Schneider claimed second-place finishes in both the 100- and 200-meter sprints. Collin Williams brok through for third in the 800.
“It was a tough meet, but one that made us better, Thierolf said. “We posted some very good marks, had many PRs and still did not score as many points as we would like to. All in all, a good learning day for us.”
