The Tonganoxie High boys track team kept up its winning ways on Thursday, taking the team title at its home meet, the Tonganoxie Invitational.

The THS girls fared well too, finishing second for the second time this season.

The Chieftain boys finished with 148 team points, 10 more than runner-up Piper. The girls fell short of a team title of their own by just four points. Lansing won the girls team title with 132 points and THS finished with 128.

The Tonganoxie boys won five events, two of which were relays. The team of David Powell, Bret Koch, DJ Lindsay and Jeremy Carlisle won the 4x100 and 4x400 relay races.

Other first-place finishers were Jake Willis in the pole vault, Jeremy Elliott in the javelin and Dylan Scates in the triple jump.

The THS girls won seven events at the invitational, also getting two relay wins. Andie Jeannin, Megan Puhr, Sagan Scates and Cristina Rubio won the 4x400, and Lauren Hall teamed with Jeannin, Puhr and Scates to win the 4x800 relay.

Roni Grizzle was the only Chieftain to win multiple individual events. She took first in the javelin and the shot put, where her throw of 41-9 broke her own meet record.

Rubio won the 400-meter dash, Jeannin won the 800-meter run and Dominique Grizzle won the discus.
