Brooks, Bach shine for Marion
by Brandon Leonard Correspondent · April 13th, 2017

The Marion boys' track and field team placed fourth at both meets last week, one hosted by Anamosa and the other by Dyersville. The Indians picked up three wins at the Fearing Relays in Anamosa while grabbing four victories at the Beckman Co-Ed Relays. Some familiar faces were winners for the Indians, but one of them showed off his versatility to not only the competitors at the meet, but outside of the meet as well.

Blair Brooks was a winner in the 110-meter high hurdles at Anamosa with a time of 14.95 seconds, and also won the 400-meter hurdles race. Brooks opened a lot of eyes with a winning time of 56.32 seconds, currently the 18th best time in the state of Iowa.

Myles Bach also picked up a win for the Indians at Anamosa in the 1600-meter run with teammate Jeremy Fopma placing second. Bach crossed the stripe with a time of 4:29.38 with Fopma right with him as he crossed with a time of 4:30.90. The one-two performance helped the Indians score 56 points as a team, 50 behind meet champion Western Dubuque.

Later in the week at the Beckman Co-Ed, Bach and Brooks were winners, yet again, along with Harrison VanDerLinden. Bach ran his way to victory in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:04.10 while VanDerLinden joined in on the distance party with a winning time of 10:27.60 in the 3200-meter run.

Brooks flew to victory in the long jump with a jump of 21'8.5" while also sprinting to victory in the 200-meter dash with a winning time of 22.86 seconds.

The Indians scored 103 points as a team while Northeast Goose Lake scored 122 points to claim the boys team title.
