Fairfield’s boys’ and girls’ track teams traveled to Wayland Thursday where they both finished first in team scoring at the WACO High School Ekstrand Relays.

The gentlemen were led by 4x200 and 4x400 meter relay teams that finished first along with Landon Kooiker who won the 400 meter hurdles and high jump, Tristin Waugh and Hunter Drish who claimed the shot put and long jump titles, respectively.

The ladies’ best performances came from the 800 meter sprint medley, 4x200 meter relay and 4x100 meter relay teams that all crossed the line ahead of the competition.

Individual standouts were Julia Fritz and Olivia Roberts who were victorious in the discus throw and the shot put, respectively.

Boys’ Head Coach Brian Dunlap said, “The Ekstrand Relays win was a solid team effort.”

He added, “We scored good points in all areas...sprints, throws, hurdles, distance and jumps. Field events started us off well and we kept it up on the track.”

Performances that stood out to the Fairfield skipper were, “Drish, Kooiker, Sullivan, Wilkins and several others,” who all “had good nights that included personal records or season bests.”

Dunlap concluded with, “That’s where we want to be heading into May. Healthy, fast and as strong as possible.”
