Led by Class A MVPs Hailey Streff and Tayler Anderson, the Madison Bulldogs claimed the team titles at the Barker Relays on Saturday at Madison.
"Our kids deserved a good day to compete, and they didn't let the opportunity get away from them," said Head Coach Kevin DeCurtins.
Streff helped the girls to score 184 points and run away with the title. Following the Bulldogs were West Central 134.50, Clark/Willow Lake 103, Tea Area 80, Irene-Wakonda 52, Canistota 40.50, Deuel 32, McCook Central/Montrose 26.50, Hamlin 25.50, Chamberlain 17, Rosholt 16 and Flandreau 8.
Streff won the 1600-meter run with a time of 5:20.2, which is a new meet record and a state qualifying record. The old record was set by Chester's Laura Wolles in 2006 with a time of 5:28.50.
Streff, an eighth-grader, was also on two winning relay teams. Madison Nipe, Olivia Rud, Streff and Emily Hawkes won the 3200-meter in a record time of 9:55.1, which is also a state meet qualifying time.
Rud, Nipe, Lexi Finck and Streff teamed up to win the sprint medley relay with a time of 4:22.12, which is a state meet qualifying time.
Also for Madison, Jenni Giles won the 800-meter run with a time of 2:33.60. Hawkes won 3200-meter run with a state meet qualifying time of 11:31.50.

Ashley Schwebach won the pole vault with a vault of 8 feet. Coley Stoller won the triple jump with a state meet qualifying jump of 35-feet-05.75.
Anderson helped the boys rack up 212.50 points to claim the title by more than 100 points. Following the Bulldogs were West Central with 101 points, Tea Area 77.50, Irene/Wakonda 74, Deuel 56, Chamberlain 51, McCook Central/Montrose 42, Hamlin 38, Canistota 24, Flandreau 22, Rosholt 20 and Clark/Willow Lake 19.
Anderson won two individual events and helped a relay team take first place. The Madison junior won the 100- and 200-meter dashes in 11.0 and 22.7 seconds, respectively, both state meet qualifying times.
Brendon Waldner, Jacob Giles, Rush Milne and Anderson teamed up to win the 800-meter relay with a state meet qualifying time of 1:32.70.
Anderson placed second in the long jump with a state meet qualifying jump of 22-feet-01.

Tyler Currey was second in the discus with a state qualifying throw of 151-08.
"We now have 15 individual state qualifiers and three relay teams qualified," DeCurtins said.
DeCurtins expressed his appreciation to the volunteers who helped at the meet on Saturday.
"We had people shoveling snow and ice off the sand pits for the long jump and the shot put area to get them to dry out and be fit to use," DeCurtins said.
Madison will be back in action on Friday, when the Bulldogs go to Sioux Falls to compete in the Sioux Falls O'Gorman qualifier and the Howard Wood Relays. The Sioux Falls O'Gorman qualifier starts at 11 a.m. and the Howard Wood Relays begins at 3 p.m.
