MUSCATINE — In its final meet before Friday’s Mississippi Athletic Conference meet at Pleasant Valley, Clinton placed third behind Cedar Rapids Kennedy and Bettendorf on Tuesday at the Dave Matthews Invitational boys track and field meet.

Kennedy won with 155 points, while Bettendorf edged Clinton by four points, 92-88, for second.

“We had some good showings,” Clinton coach Tony Smith said. “We had good throws, David Johnson ran well in the shuttle hurdle and 200, we had a good four-by-4(00) and some junior varsity kids, in their last meet of the year, lowered times.”

Clinton’s top performance came in the discus. Matt Murphy won with a throw of 152 feet, 9 inches, and teammate Brent Clausen took third at 138-2.5.

In other field events, Clinton’s Zane Pennock was the runner-up in the high jump and Adam Young and Jaryd Prince took third in the long jump and shot put, respectively.

On the track, Johnson had the best performance with a second-place finish in the 200 meters, and the River Kings took second in the 1,600 relay.

The junior varsity got titles from Maurice Walker in the long jump, Young in the high jump and the 400 relay team.
