The 11th year of Marion Days Frog and Toad jumping was a warm one! 15 Amphibi-letes landed in the River Parking lot in the heat of downtown Marion to test their leg strength and endurance. Three jumpers leapt above the rest to earn this year’s top honors! This year’s champion, with a jump of 7’ 11”, was ‘Fred’ trained by Jayce Mosher. Second place was ‘Tommie’ who was whipped into shape by Eli Alberts with a jump of 6’ 10”. Rounding out the top three was also ‘Fred’ (no relation to this year’s frog champion) who was mentored by Mackinzie Ryersie with a jump of 6’ 6”. All the frogs (and kids) did a great job!
