Spartan Invitational @ Mansfield Stadium

The Madison Memorial boys track & field team hosted 12 of the best teams in the state Friday night at the Spartan Invitational. A big shout out to the parents, jv athletes, & girls team members who helped put on a spectacular event. The teams took advantage of the nice spring weather (especially after the wind calmed down) to display some top performances. There were 4 state leading performances and 20 total state honor roll performances attained in tonight's meet. The JMM boys accumulated 83 points on their way to a 3rd place finish. Many athletes achieved personal bests and the Spartans showed they are ready for the championship season which begins next week.

The boys were led by the Outstanding Track Performer of the meet Daurice F. Daurice set a meet record in the 110m hurdles in 14.45, won the 300m hurdles in a season best 39.41, and place 1st in the long jump with a season best leap of 22' 6.75".
