PCM finishes fourth at home meet

by Gunnar Davis

After a second-place finish two days before at Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont, the PCM Mustangs boys’ track team was confident going into their home meet on April 30. With some tough competition, the Mustangs finished fourth out of seven teams with 66 points.
“Thursday’s home meet was a good meet for us,” Head Coach Collin Harrison said. “There were a lot of good schools there that gave us some great competition. We placed fourth out of seven teams and continue to turn in some good times on the year. This was a meet where we had a quick turnaround from Tuesday but did well.”
The Mustangs had no first-place finishes on the night, but the boys had a few seconds and thirds. Senior Skyler Koder captured two of the second-place finishes by himself, placing in the high jump with a leap of 6-00 and in the 110 high hurdles with his new personal-best time of 15.94. He was also part of a third-place finish in the shuttle-hurdle relay, along with fellow seniors Luke Pendroy and Ricky Reeve and junior Austin Sneller. They ran a time of 1:02.85.
The distance medley of Reeve, sophomore Luke Greiner, junior Tyler Dredge and senior Maverick McAtee placed second with a time of 3:55.37. Senior Connor Warrick was the only other third-place finish. He threw a 42-10 in the shot put.
The Mustangs had a meet on May 5, and they have one tonight, May 7, at Newton with field events starting at 4:30.
