BISMARCK -- The Dickinson Trinity boys and girls track and field teams both had victories at the New Salem Invitational on Saturday.

Titans senior Kayla Rummel even set a new school record in the javelin at the Community Bowl. Rummel's throw of 126 feet, 10 inches eclipsed the record of 119-0 set by Christa Kiedrowski.

"She's a pretty happy girl today," Trinity coach Craig Kovash said.

The Titans came away extremely pleased with the day, according to Kovash.

Marcus Sickler and Jake Braunberger had wins in the 800- and 3,200-meter runs, respectively. Sickler had a state-qualifying time of 2:02.13 while Braunberger improved his time to 10:06.18.
