West Lafayette junior Jake Cohen said his ankle felt as if it were splintering.
Two of his teammates on the 1,600 relay — leadoff man William Mbongo and anchor man Brandon Watt — were also nursing sore ankles. But those three combined with Jack Folkers for a gutsy clutch performance at Scheumann Stadium.
With its runner-up finish to McCutcheon in the final event, and Lafayette Jeff's fourth-place effort, West Lafayette surged past the Bronchos to repeat as boys City/County Track Meet champion by two points.
