The Catoctin High School girls repeated as team champions, while Walkersville won the boys' team title Friday night in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League Indoor Track and Field Championships held at the Hagerstown Junior College athletic complex.
Kathy Messner was a quadruple winner for Catoctin, which easily outdistanced runner-up Middletown, 124-69. Smithsburg finished third with 63 points.
The Walkersville boys had 110 points, while Middletown was second with 89 points and Smithsburg was third with 68.
Messner set two new MVAL meet records by winning the 300- meter run in 42.2 seconds and the 55-meter dash in 7.3 seconds. She also won the high jump at 5-feet-4 and the 500-meter run in 1:23.6.
"We were kind of expecting to win it, but we were still working hard to accomplish our goal," Messner said. "We have a lot of talent and we work hard together as a team."
