BOWLING GREEN Junior Grant Gaines provided Fulton with its only victory by prevailing in the 3,200 meters, but it was enough to help spur the Hornets to a second-place team finish at the Bowling Green Mini Medal meet Tuesday.
In the girls’ division, seniors Hayley Tobias and Madison Washington, and sophomore Madi Tobias each won events as Fulton came in third overall.
Gaines triumphed in the 3,200 in 10 minutes, 57 seconds. He was part of Fulton’s 3,200 relay — along with freshman Tanner Steffen, sophomore Luke Lohmeyer and junior Ian Shoemaker — that took third in 9:51.

ELSBERRY — The Thunderbirds broke a 4-all tie with a three-run outburst in the top of the seventh inning to down the Indians in Eastern Missouri Conference play Tuesday night.
Junior center fielder Brandon Hagedorn was credited with bringing home what proved to be the winning run when he drew a bases-loaded walk in the seventh. Junior catcher Michael Early then padded North Callaway’s lead with a two-run double.
The Thunderbirds (3-1, 2-0 EMO) grabbed a 2-0 edge by tallying single runs in the third and fifth, but Elsberry capitalized on a pair of North Callaway errors and plated three runs in its half of the inning to go in front.
Senior Kory Masek posted a team-low 48 as the Hornets were roughed up by the North Central Missouri Conference rival Bulldogs by 31 strokes Tuesday at Tanglewood Golf Course.
“It was just a bad day and we didn’t play very well,” Fulton head coach Pat Kelley said. “We’ve got eight guys who are really close to one another and when the weather warms up, it’s going to be pretty competitive.
“We’re trying to figure out who to play where. We just have to learn from this and move on.”
Seniors Jack Brady and Brenden Hodges followed with a pair of 50s for the Hornets, while junior Matt Henry shot a 51.
