The Washington Demon track and field team had a busy but productive night at the Wartburg Invitational yesterday at Wartburg College in Waverly. Washington ended up with nine individual medals and four relay teams finishing third place or better.

Three of those relay teams were winners. The Demon boys’ quartet of Ethan Patterson, Cameron Vongpanya, Alec Ulin and Jude Brown took the four-by-200-meters in a time of one minute and 58 seconds. Patterson and Ulin teamed with Logan McDole and Elijah Morris to claim the 4-by-400 in just over three-and-a-half minutes. Washington also won the girls’ 4-by-800 relay thanks to the efforts of Grace Voss, Lauren Horak, Abigail Kleese and Iris Dahl.

Many of those same athletes had big individual nights for the Demons. Morris won the boys’ 200-meter dash in just over 22 seconds, while Dahl finished third in the girls’ 800 meters and Voss took third in the high jump. Junior Micah Rees was Washington’s other individual winner, claiming the title in the 800 in 2:09. Sophomore Dirk Roth finished seventh in the same race.

Senior Brayden Hartman was the runner-up in the shot put, while freshman Leighton Messinger and sophomore Mason Morgan each finished fourth in the girls’ and boys’ 55-meter hurdles, respectively. Demon sophomore Quincy Griffis picked up her first medal of the season by taking sixth place in the 3,000-meter race. Two other relay teams round out Washington’s medalists: the boys’ 4-by-800 squad of Drew Horak, Sawyer Tschantz and Andrew and Micah Rees that finished third; and the girls’ 4-by-200 group of Messinger, Ada Kendall, Ryen Pepper and Leighton Salazar, which was seventh.
