BAXTER — The five wins PCM’s boys’ track and field team got on April 5 were a meet-high at the Bolts Relays.

But Madrid’s depth was too much to overcome as the Tigers cruised to the team title with 15 top-three finishes and double points in three individual events.

Madrid finished with 140 points. PCM did come in second with 104 points. Lynnville-Sully and Baxter also were n the field, and the Hawks were fourth with 70 points and the Bolts took fifth with 45 points.

Two Bolts scored 38 of their 45 points. Will Clapper won the shot put (50 feet, 9 inches) and the discus (143-8) and Logan Berg was the winner in the 3,200 (10 minutes, 17.98 seconds) and the runner-up in the 1,600 (4:48.72).

Ian Thomson gave the Bolts double points in the 3,200, finishing fourth in 11:11.36. Rory Heer was fifth in the 400 (56.01 seconds).

The 10-team lineup also included Bondurant-Farrar (73) in third.

The bottom half of the standings featured Gilbert (44), Collins-Maxwell (33), Pleasantville (31), Grand View Christian (28) and Ankeny Christian (14).

Baxter hosted a coed meet on April 8. The Bolts compete in the Colo-NESCO Royals Coed Meet at 5 p.m. in Nevada.
