Madison’s girls track and field team picked up five individual wins while the boys were shutout as both dropped a dual meet at Seymour on Tuesday.
Maddie Holland accounted for three of the Lady Cubs’ wins as she continued her impressive senior season. She won the pole vault, her signature event, as well as the 100-meter dash. She also teamed with Leah Partin, Grace Marshall and Harper Watson to win the 1600 relay.
Partin also scored a win in the 300 hurdles while Sage Sproles won the discus.
“Seymour has a good all around team as do most teams in the Hoosier Hills Conference. We were very competitive in the field events but came up short in many of the running events,” Madison girls coach Josh Wilber said. “Maddie Holland continues to be dominant for our team while Leah Partin and Sage Sproles are achieving great results in their events. Many of our other athletes are still learning but there is improvement every meet so we all have to have patience with continual focus.”
Other top finishes for the Madison girls were: Partin, second, 200 dash and third, 100 dash; Sproles, second, shot put; Emily Kiefer, third, pole vault; Clare Wilber, third, 3200 run; Sproles, third, high jump; and Megan Eades, third, shot put.
Madison’s boys recorded 16 personal bests and nine top-three finishes but failed to get a win in a 133.5-17.5 loss.
Top finishes were: Otto Kling, second, shot put, 39-5 and second, discus, 117-4; Nathan Moore, second, pole vault, 9-0; Bryce Foy, second, 100 dash, 11.9 and third, 200 dash, 24.3; Cam Cline, third, shot put, 37-0.25; Dallas Burchfield, third, discus, 111-0; and Daunte O’Banion, third, long jump, 17-4 and third, 300 hurdles, 47-1.
Madison’s next meet is the Talon Relays at Brown County on Saturday.
