The Elmwood-Plum City girls team picked up its first meet title of the year Tuesday in a six-team competition at Baldwin-Woodville.
The co-op team scored 138.67 points.
"They've been improving a lot," E-PC coach Rick Stewart said. "It's nice to have as much depth on the girls side as we do this year."
Marah Boyer took home first place in the long jump with a leap of 14 feet, 7 1/2 inches. Boyer was also on two victorious relay teams -- the 4x200- and 4x400-meter.
Heather Von Holtum and Sarah Gilles helped Boyer in the 4x400 relay, which finished in 4 minutes, 25.06 seconds. The 4x200 team (Von Holtum and Boyer) finished in 1:53.58.
Von Holtum was victorious in the 400 with a time of 1:05.9. Morgan Sweeney also earned a first-place finish for E-PC in the 1,600. She crossed the finish line in 6:05.32.
The boys team didn't compete in every event and took second place with 105 points. Glenwood City won the event with 117 points.
Tyler Churchill finished first in the triple jump (40-3), the 300 hurdles (43.27) and the 4x400 relay along with classmates Lance Von Holtum and Alex Gilles (3:37.79). Von Holtum was the lone Plum City student on the victorious 4x200 relay team that crossed the finish line in 1:39.12.
"Those are some pretty awesome individual performances," Stewart said after listing the boys results.
Both teams are back in action Thursday at Elk Mound.
