What a great day for a meet! I seem to always be commenting on how the weather was not ideal for good performances, but today our athletes really had the opportunity to do well and they did. Many personal bests and one school record by Jessica Saunders in the shot put,” said head coach Dennis Boldt.


Track: The Marion High School Warriors competed on Friday at the Beloit meet.

“It was a beautiful day for a track and field meet, maybe even a bit too much sun for the season that we have had to date. We had some pretty good performances today but we just lack the depth to put a number up in the team scores. We were able to see a couple of league schools that we have not seen so we will be better prepared for the HOA meet in a couple of weeks,” said head coach Grant Thierolf.

Anne Baliel was the top finisher at Beloit, earning a second place finish in the pole vault and a fifth place finish in the 200M.

“That was her best 200 of the year and we hope she continues that in the coming weeks. Heidi Grimmett continued to shave time off her 800M run, finishing third on a day when the heat took a toll on many runners. Mckinnon Waner garnered a sixth place finish in the discus, navigating the three throws on a really nice day for throwing. We are getting closer with the rest of the team, Grayce, Abigail, and Gabby working their way into competitive throws and jumps. We look forward to going to Remington next Friday as we will be able to see a number of Regional and league schools for the first time this year,” said Thierolf.

It was a also good day for the Warrior boy’s team in many events.

“Track and field at the high school boy’s level is really a junior/senior dominated sport and our young athletes are getting better and better each week. They are learning to compete against the best in the state and are learning that if you want to improve, you have to put the time in on the track and in the weight room. At Beloit our distance runners led the way for us. Tristen Dye was our top scorer for the day, placing third in the 1600M and then coming right back to earn a fourth place finish in the 800M. He is racing faster each week and gaining confidence in his abilities. Fun to see! Christopher Beery ran a gritty 3200M in the heat to earn a third place finish in that tough race. Great job of racing by Christopher. Chance Shults had a solid day in the hurdles, starting out a little slow in the 110H, but recovering to earn a sixth place finish. I was pleased with the 4x400R, we cut four seconds off our seasonal best and ran a hard race. With a great week of practice behind us, we will be ready to go for Remington next week,” said Thierolf.
