“We competed well,” said Decatur coach David Park. “It started Monday in the field events. That set a good precedent and it carried over into the running events.”

Decatur finished with 198 points. Sanger took second with 125.

The top four finishers in each event head to the 9/10-4A area meet, which will be held in Decatur Wednesday. The field events and 3,200 will start at 10 a.m. and running events begin at 1 p.m.

“We’re thrilled that area is here,” Park said. “It’s probably the toughest of the four area meets. There’s good people in every event.”

Decatur’s 4×100 of Autumn Finny, Mallory Downe, Kallie Boner and Macy Downe broke their own school record with a 49.65 to hold off Sanger.

Aly Skarke joined Mallory Downe, Macy Downe and Mackenzie Whitaker to set a record of 1:46.27 in the 4×200, clipping Sanger by a full second.

Decatur closed the meet with their best time of the season in the 4×400. Skarke, Katy Wunrow, Taylor Butler and Whitaker ran 4:08.64.
