In a rare show of strength across the board, the Linn-Mar girls and boys both finished second at the Class 4A state track meet at Drake Stadium in Des Moines.
The Linn-Mar girls made a strong run for the title but had to settle for runner-up honors behind Pleasant Valley, 99-90, as the Spartans set a meet record for points.
The Linn-Mar boys, competing without injured stars Daniel Murphy and Austin Flieder, shot out of the pack to finish in second place behind Waukee, 83-53.
"We peaked at the right time," said Linn-Mar boys coach Ken Hopkins. "This is where we shine."
The Linn-Mar boys won the state meet in 2013 and placed second last year for an impressive three-year run.
