The Madison boys and girls track teams competed in the Greensburg Crossbones Relays on Saturday.
Unlike normal meets, the Crossbones is not a regular IHSAA event, but rather a meet with relays and two-man field events.
Both Cub track groups were successful in the meet, placing in several different events. Madison boys coach Scott Holcroft was once again impressed with his group.
"This meet was a great opportunity to see what our guys are capable of doing," Holcroft said. "We were able to run an A and B team,varsity and junior varsity, for all events. We haven't been able to do this in the past."
The boys and girls teams had a combined three first place finishes. The duo of Jordan Partee and Josh Scott set a new meet record in the long jump with a combined 40 feet, 9.5 inches. Partee, Scott, Nick Palmer and Wayne Sherbahn also won the boys 400 relay in 45 seconds.
In the girls meet, Krista Hazlewood, Ashley Allen, Macky Hecox, and Emily Holland won the throwers relay and set a new meet record in that event.
Other top finishes for Madison's boys were: Alex Moore and Trajan Jenkins, second, discus, 227-10; Palmer and Hunter Sego, second, pole vault, 20-0; Jenkins, Moore, Nathan Riley, and Morgan Curry, second, throwers relay, 53.21; Patrick Knight, David Gibson, Malta Frenzel and Justin Robertson, third, 3200 run, 9:10.1; Knight, Frenzel, Robertson, and Gibson, third, distance medley, 12:12.07; Palmer, Hunter Sego, Logan Cassidy and Henry Willhite, third, shuttle hurdles, 1:15.9; and Nash Grooms, Sherbahn, Palmer and Knight, third, sprint medley, 1:46.
Other finishes for Madison's girls were: Holland and Emily Ward, third, high jump; and Hecox and Holland, third, discus.
Both track teams will be back in action when they host Switzerland County, Rising Sun, Shawe, and Carroll County in a five-way meet on Tuesday. Meet time is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
