Thursday night the Boy’s track team traveled to Elkhart Central to compete in the Northern Indiana Conference meet.

The Kingsmen took home the title scoring 127 points, pulling out the victory over Elkhart Central, who battled to the end being tied with Penn with one event remaining. Junior James Morris placed third in shot put which put the Kingsmen over the top and won the meet.

Matt McCown took first place in high jumping 6’6 and Malik Gambrell took fourth. Senior Trey Zahner pole vaulted twelve feet, which was enough to vault into first place.

Bailey Mott competed in the 300 hurdles and took home the blue ribbon with a time of 39.41 seconds. Drew Brady also placed in this event stealing the third spot along with a second place finish in the 110 hurdles.

The Elkhart Blazers threw everything they had at the Kingsmen but in the end Penn came out with the NIC title and will compete for the Sectional title this Thursday at Saint Joe.
