DAYTON – Preston fared well at the 12-school Elsie Bastian Invitational on Friday in Dayton, winning both the girls’ and boys’ team titles, even though hamstring injuries in both Brennyn Dunn and Danielle Seamons prevented them from competing full out.
The boys finished with 169.5 points which was 38.5 points ahead of second place West Side and the girls won out over Soda Springs (97) with 155.5.
While winning was a great boost for the Preston teams in their final meet before the 4A Fifth District Championships, it was the personal records that stole the show. Ryan Wakley destroyed his own school record in the 300-meter hurdles with the third fastest prep time in all of Idaho this season at 38.93 seconds. He also beat all comers in the 110 hurdles (14.93) and long jump (21 feet, 3.5 inches), and he PRed in all three events. Cody McKay, who captured the school record in the 100 earlier this year, now holds the record in the 200 as well with a time of 22.29.
