MARION — After suffering through several meet cancellations the past few weeks, the Fairfield girls’ track team was just happy to be back on track and running against live competition Thursday.

Competing at the Marion Invite — their first meet since the Don Newell Relays April 16 — the Trojan girls finished third Thursday with 81 points. Benton won the team title with 105 and West Delaware finished runner-up with 96.

“It’s been hard to get any kind of rhythm. By now, we should be talking about getting into meet shape. It’s one thing to train, but you need to get into meet shape,” said head coach Ron Hunerdosse.

Sydney Howard again led the Trojans on Thursday, picking up wins in the 100-meter dash (13.04) as well as the 200-dash (26.93). The senior also anchored the 4x200 to victory along with Cierra Bielinski, McKenzie McClure and Erin Thompson, who returned to the lineup for the first time since March 4. The foursome finished the race in 1:50.39 for the one second victory.

Marisa Repp continued to display consistency in the high jump and finished second at 5 feet, and she tacked on a bronze with a time of 1:13.11 in the 400-hurdles. Senior teammate Sidney Baumann brought her best when she needed it most against a strong field of throwers; Baumann topped out at 116-feet, 2-inches in the discus to set a season best and place third on the day.

Other third-place finishes came from Taylor Ferrel in the 800 (2:37.14) and the 4x800 crew of Hannah Sobaski, Ferrel, Jessica Lamb and Sesali Martin (10:21).

Fairfield’s 4x100 runs at the Drake Relays today. The team hosts the Brookhart-Crew Relays on Monday.

“I don’t think our home meet could’ve happened at a better time. We’re on the verge and it’s our home meet, and we traditionally run well at our home meet,” said Hunerdosse. “I think Monday is a crucial time for us ... to not just show up but shot up and make a statement.”
