Madison's boys track and field team competed in the Seymour Invitational Tuesday with senior Wayne Sherbahn named Tri-MVP of the meet.
Sherbahn won the 100 dash in 11 seconds and was second in the 200 dash in 23.3 seconds. He also had a fourth place finish in the 400 relay.
"(Sherbahn) has worked so hard this year," Madison coach Scott Holcroft said. "There have not been many MVP's from our school in this meet."
Jordan Partee won the long jump at 21 feet, 9 inches and was third in the high jump at 5 feet, 10 inches. Nick Palmer was third in the pole vault at 12-feet-even.
Madison finished fifth with 57 points. Columbus East won the meet with 123 points.
"This is always a very interesting meet for us," Holcroft said. "For a lot of our younger guys this was their first big meet and they had nine personal bests on the night. They found out what it is like to run against some great competition."
Madison visits Jennings County on Friday for the Big Blue Relays.
