Two meets down. Two team titles.

The Tonganoxie High girls track team won its second team title of the season on Thursday at the Tonganoxie Invitational.

The Chieftains had little trouble doing so, racking up 77 more points than second-place Lansing, and winning nine events.

Impressively, THS earned the top three spots in the discus. Domino Grizzle won and her teammates — Holly Thompson (second) and Jo Kissinger (third) were right behind her.

Grizzle also won the shot put, making her one of two Tonganoxie girls to win multiple individual events. The other was Abby Eisman, who won the pole vault and the 100-meter hurdles.

Boys finish 2nd

The THS boys (missing key athletes in a few events because of this weekend’s Kansas Relays in Lawrence) finished second at the Tonganoxie Invitational, 12 points behind Piper.

Still, the Chieftains won four events.

As usual, Jake Willis finished first in the pole vault, and Dylan Jacobs got his second first-place finish of the year in the high jump.

The other two victories came in relay races. Willis, Bret Koch, Jeremy Carlisle and DJ Lindsay teamed up to win both the 4x100 relay and the 4x400 relay.

Neither race was close but the 4x400 time of 3:33.15 was more than 10 seconds faster than runner-up Lansing.

The THS track teams will be back in action on Tuesday at the Lansing Invitational, but a few Chieftains — Grizzle, Whitledge, Willis, Lindsay, Carlisle and Koch —will compete this weekend at the Kansas Relays.
