Preston was well represented at the 4A State Track Meet in Boise over the weekend.
The girls’ team placed sixth with 42 points and was three points away from fourth and a trophy. The boys’ team came in 12th with 26 points.
“Overall it was a great weekend,” said coach Brandon Lyon. “We had a lot of personal records and brought home a handful of medals. The kids really performed well.”
Senior Olivia Seamons took home medals in all four of her events. On Friday she broke her own school record in the triple jump and earned a silver medal in second place with a leap of 37’ 0.5”. It was the fourth-best mark in all of Idaho this season.
She finished third in the 100 (12.67) and fourth in the 200 (26.31) on Saturday and anchored the 4×100 relay team. Kayla Scoffield, Tess Hobbs and Kenidee Hyde were the other members of the team that broke that school relay record and earned fourth with a time of 50.28.
Cailtin Elgan set a new school record in the 800m and a solid second with 2:22.93. Billy Hatch, who is just a freshman, also beat the old school record in the same race and came in third at 2:24.08.
