Senior Kenzie Henderson had a record jump in long jump early Saturday morning at the Delta Invitational track and field meet. The Cedaredge senior sailed 17-08.5 and established a new Delta Invitational mark in girls' long jump. Her nearest competitor, Brianna Van Vleet from Paonia, recorded a distance of 16-09.75. The old mark of 16-10.75 was set by Moffat County's Erin Urbanoski back in 2009.

According to Cedaredge head coach, and Henderson's father, Kirby Henderson, her winning jump is a career-best and a new Cedaredge school record.

Henderson's top finish was the Bruins' only one of the meet last week. Henderson placed second in high jump with a height of 5-02.

Katie Hyke recorded Cedaredge's other second-place finish with a throw of 103-02 in discus competition.

The Bruins' Shayna Dale recorded a jump of 15-04 in long jump to place third, giving Cedaredge 16 points in the event. The Bruins had 64 points in the meet and placed fifth.

Cedaredge's 3200-meter relay team had a time of 11:02.76 and a third-place finish.

Receiving fourth place points for the Bruins were Camie Baldozier in the 1600-meter run and Katie Hyke in the discus throw.

Amber Jenkins (100m), Kenna Signs (3200m) and Emily Tullis (100 hurdles) picked up fifth-place points for the Bruins. Tullis was seventh in the 300-meter hurdles.

Hannah Hatheway ran to a seventh place finish in the 800-meter run.
