MHS wins four top-3 medals at Beloit meet

The Marion track and field team faced stiff competition among the 28 teams competing at the Beloit Relays Friday, but the Warriors brought home four top-three medals and a new meet record-holder.

“We had a pretty good meet against some of the toughest competition we have faced this year,” coach Grant Thierolf said.

Tyler Palic set a meet record in the discus with a first-place throw of 172 feet, 11 inches. Palic’s personal-best distance is 179-8. He achieved personal records in his other two throws, finishing second in shot put (50-1.5) and fourth in javelin (163-7).

“Tyler just works very hard at being a great thrower,” Thierolf said. “He is blessed with great balance and body awareness.”

Jack Schneider placed third in the 100 (11.69 seconds), while two Warriors placed fifth: Noah Dalrymple in high jump (5-10) and Austin Neufeld in pole vault (11-6).

Meanwhile, Sam Rich­mond, Anne Baliel, Maria Stuchlik and Emmy Hess paced the girls’ team with a second-place finish in the 4×100 relay in a season-best 53.61.

Baliel, Maria Stuchlik, Abigail Stuchlik and Rich­mond finished fifth in the 4×400 (4:32.65).

Individually, Hess was sixth in long jump (14-8.5) and Sam Kelsey was sixth in high jump (4-4).

Tuesday’s results were unavailable at press time.
