ALLEMAN – An awesome showing in field events was enough to get Collins-Maxwell-Baxter past North Polk for the team championship at the Heart of Iowa Conference meet Monday in Alleman.

The CMB boys produced the winner in all four field events. The Raiders also had the runner-up in three of those events.

That phenomenal showing helped CMB rack up 152 points to beat North Polk’s 135 outing for first in the team standings.

“We obviously were very pleased to win the HOIC team title,” CMB head coach Neil Seales said. “This conference is such a great conference with so many outstanding teams, athletes and coaches. We feel very fortunate and honored to have the meet turn out the way it did.”

In throwing events, Zach Samson won the shot and took second in the discus. Clayton Weltha won the discus for CMB and Patrick Girard was runner-up in the shot.

Samson’s best throw in the shot was 56 feet, 10 inches. Girard peaked with a toss of 51-9, which was over five feet better than the third-place effort by Greene County’s Alex Rasmussen.

In the discus Weltha’s best effort was 134-10. That was just enough to edge Samson’s throw of 132-8 for the win.

Bryce Kemp and Zach Huffaker came in first and second in the long jump for CMB.

Kemp best jump was 20-6 and Huffaker was close behind after topping out at 20-3.25. Kemp and Huffaker were the only individuals to reach 20 feet in the event as Nevada’s Erik Fevold jumped 19-11.5 to win the bronze.

Hunter Gunderson added another victory for CMB in the high jump. Gunderson cleared the bar at 5-10 to beat out Prairie City-Monroe’s Skyler Koder and North Polk’s Grant Rampton for the gold.

On the track the CMB boys won two events and took second in three more.

Kemp took the 110-meter high hurdles in 14.97 seconds. North Polk’s Russell Greene came in second at :15.58.

Kemp also placed second in the 200 with a :23.69 showing. South Hamilton’s Devin Howard won in :23.08.

Jordan Coughenour won the gold in the 400 low hurdles and he earned a silver medal in the open 400.

In the 400 lows, Coughenour ran a time of :56.57 to beat out the :57.16 by Gilbert’s Wyatt Rhoads for the win. Coughenour completed the open 400 in :51.85 to come in just behind the :51.54 run by Gilbert’s Andre Rathje.

CMB’s top relays were the shuttle hurdle and 4 X 400. The Raiders placed second in the shuttle hurdle and third in the 4 X 400.

Nick Little, Joey Nissen and Austin Moorman teamed with Coughenour to run a 1:02.42 in the shuttle hurdle. North Polk won in 1:01.62 and Nevada took third in 1:03.66.

In the 4 X 400 Kyle Cather joined up with Gunderson, Huffaker and Coughenour to clock in at 3:40.34. North Polk and Gilbert came in first and second with respective times of 3:33.75 and 3:35.10.

The CMB girls ended up placing fifth out of 10 teams with 63 points. PCM easily won the HOIC girls’ title with 148 points and Gilbert came in second with a score of 113.

“We knew going into the meet that if we performed well we would be fighting for that fourth or fifth-place spot and that is what we got,” CMB head girls’ track coach Jerry Meinerts said. “We did some really good things tonight.”

Abbie Haupert gave CMB a victory in the discus and Bridget Hurley and Maddy Poage both placed second in an event for the Raider girls.

Haupert’s best throw in the discus was 111 feet, seven inches. PCM’s Abbi Gilson came in second with a throw of 107-4.

Hurley ran a time of 1:05.39 in the girls’ 400. Gilbert’s Paige Hoiberg won the event in 1:04.84 and Roland-Story’s Anna Himan came in third at 1:05.70.

Poage took runner-up honors in the high jump. Poage managed to jump at 5-0, edging Nevada’s Sophia Wilson for second.

Greene County’s Nadia Fisher cleared 5-0 to just beat out Poage and Wilson for first in the event.

Poage and Hurley both helped CMB place third in the 4 X 100. They were joined by Toni Spencer and Mackenzie Schmitz in running a time of :53.19 to come in behind only the :51.70 by PCM and Nevada’s :52.73 showing.

Spencer also took third in the long jump with a jump of 15-2.25. PCM’s Ashley Van Gorp won with a jump of 15-11.5 and Gilbert’s Karli Rastetter beat out Spencer for second with a jump of 15-4.

Schmitz just missed medaling in the 100 as she took fourth in :13.45. Spencer was fifth in the event with a :13.54 showing.

Payge Jurgens and Mikayla Eslinger each gave CMB a fifth-place effort in a throwing event. Jurgens was fifth in the shot with a throw of 35-3 and Eslinger had a throw of 100-3 in the discus.

Both CMB teams will compete at the Class 2A state qualifying meet in Van Meter today. The meet is set to begin at 4 p.m.
