Boys 100m Dash – Sean Barton and Derek Lord were part of that state record team and they also went 1-2 in the 100m dash.  Barton ran 11.11 and Lord ran 11.25. they were followed by Stetson Sartor of Herriman at 11.35, which is a season best for him. Stetson came back to also set a season best and win the Long Jump with a jump of 21’2”.

Boys 1600m Run- Herriman High dominated the boys 1600m with a very impressive 1-2-3 finish in a very tight group. Rory Linkletter led his teammates with a personal best time of 4:24.1 followed by Chuk Mitchell and Connor Jones both at 4:25.8. Rory doubled back in the 800m with another personal best time of 2:01.80 which was 4th place.

Girls Long Jump- Kaylie King of Herriman won the long jump in personal best fashion, with a jump of 17’2”. She won the meet by nearly 2 feet and her jump was only 1 inch off the top jump in the state.

Girls 1600m Run-  Courtney Wayment of Northridge ran a huge personal best of 5:12 for the win. Wayment is only a freshman and is already creeeping ever closer to that 5 minute barrier. She was followed by Megan Spehar of Bountiful at 5:14 and Sharlie Dimick of Syracuse at 5:15.

Girls 100m Dash – Freshman Kaysha Love of Herriman continued her fantastic first season with another win. She beat out her teammate Rachel Butterfield 12.38 to 13. 22. Mackenzie Bindrup of Northridge was 3rd.

Boys 200m Dash – Woods Cross Boys sprints are dominant this season, taking 4 of the top 5 places last night. Jacopo Spano beat out his teammate, the meet 100m champ Sean Barton 22.69 to 22.99. Jared Humphrey of Herriman was 3rd at 23.22.

Boys 3200m Run- Davis Duo Alex Hedquist and Andrew Aposhian went 1-2, running 9:31 and 9:35 respectively. Hedquist ran a PR at Arcadia two weeks ago but his 9:31 at altitude might be more impressive.
