The 800 meter group all set new personal records (PRs) or seasonal records (SRs), led by Josh Beck’s 2:12.89 which was an almost 4 second lifetime best. The hurdle crew had a great day with Israel Miles and Kaleb Coleman going 1-2 in both varsity races and Dylan Kee-Ball running a three second PR in the 300s. In the field events Lane Marshall and Cole Edel went 1-2 in varsity shot put with Cole’s throw being over a one-foot improvement from his previous PR.
