Mustang girls win home relays ; Bulldog boys fifth

BLOOMFIELD — The youthful Ottumwa boys track and field team came in fifth at the Class AA Davis County Mustang Relays Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Davis County girls protected their home turf by finishing first among the girls teams with 205 points.

The pinnacle of the meet for the Bulldogs came when Shane Riley nabbed second in the 3,200 meters with a time of 11:54.77. Other highlights included the team of Seth Griffiths, Isaiah Hutchison, Isaiah Cox and Titus Weller finishing third in the 4x200 with 1:40.94 and the 4x100 with 46.90.

Ottumwa coach Nickerson, noting the high number of freshman and sophomores that decorate his team, said one thing he asks his guys is to get better every meet.

“The future looks bright for them,” he said.

A number of Mustangs carried the Davis County girls team to a first place finish. Ally McClure snared first place in the 800 meters with 2:29.70, Mallory Wells zipped to a first place finish in the 400 meter hurdles with 1:17.84 and Addie McKee took first in the 400 meters. In addition, Kate Birchmier nabbed first place in the discus and shot put and Hayleigh Sharp leapt to first place in the long jump.

The Van Buren girls claimed third place honors with 80 points. The Warriors score was elevated by Unity Daugherty, who snared first place in the 300 meters with 11:52.41 and Hannah Haynes, who nabbed first place in the 100 meter hurdles with 16.70. Cardinal took fifth in the meet with 45.5 points.

Fairfield made a strong showing in the Class AA invite, as it took second, finishing 26 points behind Kirksville, which led the pack with 157 points. The Trojans’ score was bolstered by Jonny Swanson, who racked up first place finishes in 110 meter hurdles with a time of 15.14 second and 400 meter hurdles with 58.88 seconds. The Trojans also were aided by Aaron Gevock, who took first in the 3,200 with a time of 11.41.79 and Daniel Schwartz, who nabbed first in high jump with a leap of six feet and two inches.
