The Pleasantville boys four-by-400 meter relay team won the state championship in class one-A Saturday.  The team of Eric Persoon, Bryan Koerselman, Connor Cummings, and Travis Duffield won in a time of 3:27.34.  That makes six state titles brought home to Marion County by high school athletes at the State Meet this weekend.  Knoxville's Kyle Crossett won the boys long jump, Pella's Brooke Gritters won the girls shot put, Twin Cedars' Lindsay Hoehns won the high jump and long jump, and Pleasantville won the boys four-by-200 meter relay.
