The Fergus girls’ track and field team took first-place honors at the Laurel Quadrangular Meet held on Tuesday. The Golden Eagles scored 108 points, nosing out Laurel with 104 points. Park finished in third with 69 points, followed by Hardin in fourth with 50 points.
The Fergus boys’ team finished second to host Laurel at the meet. Laurel scored 140 points, followed by Fergus with 97, Hardin with 85 and Park with 14.
Marissa James, Anna Zimmer and Sheanna Larson took first-place honors for the Fergus girls’ team. James won three events – the 100-meter hurdles, the 300 hurdles and the high jump. Zimmer won the shot put, winning again over Park’s Lauren Emter. The two shot putters have battled back and forth all season long. Zimmer, just a sophomore, hit the 39-foot mark for the first time in her high school career. Emter’s longest put of the day was 38-6. Larson took top honors in the javelin.
Besides James winning the 100-meter hurdles, teammates Ashley Brand took second, Bailey Collins third and Auriel Krumwiede was sixth. Three Golden Eagles also placed in the 300-meter hurdles, with James first, Ashley Brand second and Collins fourth.
The Fergus boys’ team was led by first-place finishes from Haiden Collins, Noah Majerus, Sam Butcher and Jaden Graham. Just like James, Collins won three events for the Golden Eagles – 100-meter dash, 110-meter high hurdles and the 300-meter hurdles. Majerus won the 400-meter dash. Majerus, normally a distance runner, went down to the long sprint race to tone up his sprint speed for later in the season. Butcher won the discus, while Graham took top honors in the high jump. Graham soared over 6 feet in the event. The next highest jump was 5 feet, 4 inches.
Today (Saturday) the Fergus teams are hosting their final home meet of the season. Field events start at 10 a.m. today, while the races on the track do not begin until 11:30 a.m., which should allow the athletes the time to get their field events completed before the running events begin.
