After several meets without a full crew, the Mercer track team finally hit the track with a full squad in Gilman Thursday afternoon and the results showed as the girls took second and the boys finished in fifth place.

Head coach Bob Schenk said it was the strongest performance for the girls' team overall in decades.

"The girls scored more points in a meet than in any year since probably the 1800s," he said.

The girls scored 105 points to finish second to Division 2 school Stanley-Boyd, who had the numbers to enter every event.

The boys scored 24 points from six events.

In the team's first outdoor experience this year in muddy conditions, the performed well.

Caitlyn Hiller and Sydney Thompson were dominant in their events all day.

Hiller swept the hurdles events, taking both the 100 (19.11 seconds) and 300 (55.95) meter events. Ella Torkelson took fourth in the 200 hurdles with 1:02.81.

Thompson handily won the shot put with a throw of 41' 6 1/4". In the team's first time throwing the discus, Thompson dominated that event as well, throwing 118' 4", nearly 30' more than second place.

Sydney Thompson swept the shot put and discus despite having to use a shovel to dig out the shot put after it landed.

All three of Mercer's relay teams for the girls finished in second place. The 4x100 - Hayle Woolf, Jess Klopatek, Rebecca Spagnuolo, Torkelson - finished in 1:03.16 behind Stanley-Boyd.

The 4x200 relay of Hiller, Torkleson, Kayle Cassiani and Gwen Allen ran it in 2:03.94, behind Thorp and the 4x400 relay of Aubrey Schoeneman, Spagnuolo, Klopatek and Torkelson ran the event in 6:13.35, behind Stanley-Boyd again.

Several personal records were set during the meet, beginning with Spagnuolo, who won the high jump with a height of 4' 6", also coming in second in the triple jump with 29' 2 1/2".

"She had a PR (personal record) in the triple jump. PRs were also set by Aubrey Schoeneman in the shot put with a throw of 33' 4"," Schenk Said. "Aubrey is actually ahead of Sydney's throws as a freshman. Billie Botes had a PR in the shot (27' 8") and discus (67' 9")."

For the boys, the Tigers came in the top 10 in all six events, with Tyler Bianga taking the lone first in the shot put, throwing 46' 5 3/4". Bianga also finished in second in the discus, throwing 116' 9".

Tristin Woolf finished in fourth in the 200 meter dash with 27.52, while he came in fifth for the 400 meter dash with 1:01.39.

In the triple jump, Jovan Pavlovic placed seventh with a distance of 46' 5 3/4." Pavlovic also ran 13.22 in the 100 meter dash to take eighth, while Joe Laudolff finished 10th with 13.89.
