MARION, Iowa — One team race went deep into the meet.

One didn’t. It certainly didn’t.

Marion won 10 events and racked up 179 points to capture the Wamac Conference West Division boys’ track championship Monday at Thomas Park Field.

“I can’t describe how proud I am of this team,” said sprinter Devin LeBeau, who won three events and finished second in another. “It’s an overall, all-around … ”

He paused.

“Everybody contributes. Literally everybody.”

Marion had the title well in hand early. Five different Indians won individual crowns — LeBeau in the 100, Quinn Cannoy in the 110 hurdles, Isaac Frazier in the high jump, Zach Borens in the shot put and Justin Dolley in the discus.

Add five relay titles (all but the medley), and that’s a dominating performance. Center Point-Urbana was the boys’ runner-up with 134 points.

Inclement weather last Thursday forced a postponement and change of format of this event, which originally was scheduled as a 16-team “Super” meet. Instead, it was switched to divisionals, with the East Division competition at Manchester.

“I was disappointed it turned out that way. We were looking forward to competing with the East teams too, like Solon and DeWitt (Central) and West Delaware,” said LeBeau, who ran on the winning 400- and 800-meter relays. “They would be right there with us in some events. We’ll definitely see them in Des Moines.”

That’s the site of the state meet, next weekend. Entrance into that meet will be earned at Thursday’s districts.

Williamsburg pulled away late to claim the girls’ title. The Raiders tabulated 138 points to outscore Benton Community (122) and Clear Creek Amana (117).

The pivotal event was the 1,500-meter run, the third-to-last race. With Williamsburg and CCA locked in a tie with 105 points apiece, the Raiders’ Julie Hollensbe and Carly Schlabaugh went 1-2 to give their team separation from the field.

“I’m a freshman, so it was just nice that I could contribute,” Hollensbe said. “We talked a little about going 1-2, because we were close behind the girl that was top-seeded.”

Williamsburg won seven girls events. Hollensbe was joined by Shannon Mullnix (3,000), Brianna Dellamuth (100) and Kali Slaymaker (200). The Raiders won the 400- and 800-meter relays, plus the sprint medley.

Marion’s girls were fifth, getting wins from Abby Kolarik in the 400 and Morgan Kolarik in the 100 hurdles.
