The Fairfield boys’ track team finished sixth overall and third in Class A at the Ekstrand Relays hosted by WACO High School Thursday in Wayland.

Class A and Class B competed together in many of the day’s events. Van Buren earned fifth place in Class B and eighth place overall.

Mediapolis and Mid-Prairie finished ahead of Fairfield in Class A. Windy conditions gave everyone at the meet problems.

“The sprint races were right into the teeth of the wind,” Fairfield coach Brian Dunlap said. “On a night like that you just throw the time out the window and hope everyone goes out and competes.”

Fairfield was led by Michael Fritz, who took home the discus throw title with a throw of 123-05. Teammate and fellow freshman Cameron Baumann earned second with a throw of 122-02.

Austin Francisco got second place in the 110-meter hurdles with the time of 16.99 and also got fourth in the 400-meter hurdles.
