MONROE — The Collins-Maxwell-Baxter boys’ track team came up just short of a team title at the Mustang Classic April 28 in Monroe.

CMB put up 148 points, but in the 4 X 400-meter relay Prairie City-Monroe secured the team championship by beating out the Raiders for the gold in the final event. The Mustangs won the six-team competition with 151 points.

“It’s always fun when it comes down to the 4 x 4,” CMB head coach Josh Russell said. “Wish it had come out the other way for our kids, but still proud of their efforts!”

PCM won the 4 X 400 with a time of three minutes, 42.58 seconds. CMB’s team of Ben Gunderson, Hunter Gunderson, Tucker Maxwell and Joe Keeling was close behind in second place with a 3:45.75 showing.

CMB picked up two more silver medals to go along with three gold medals.

Will Clapper and Brady Kemp were first and second in the shot put. Clapper threw 48 feet, 3.5 inches and Kemp had a toss of 46-3.

Clapper also won a bronze medal in the discus with a throw of 125-11.5.

Brady Stover won the 100 in :11.94, beating out the :12.23 run by PCM’s Tyler Dredge. Jack Cheville’s 800 time of 2:11.51 beat out the 2:12.04 run by West Marshall’s Parker Hulbert to give CMB another individual gold.

Carter Fricke came in second in the 200 with a time of :25.53. PCM’s Preston VanWyk won in :24.75.

Ian Thomson earned a bronze in the 3,200 for the Raiders with a 10:43.46 showing. The Raider shuttle hurdle team of Brady Geilenfeldt, Lane Howes, Joe Keeling and Ben Gunderson also took third in 1:10.59.
