Delta High School's girls track team had a successful season with personal best efforts coming throughout the year.
Junior Remi Baldwin was one of those athletes who constantly strived to create new personal bests at each competition. Baldwin achieved one of her goals by breaking a Delta High School record in the 300m hurdles with a preliminary time of 47.55. The old record was set back in 1996 and stood at 47.85.
Baldwin's 47.55 was good for 12th place in the 300 hurdles. Baldwin also set a new PR in the 100 hurdles with a seventh place finish time of 16.48.
Baldwin had her hand, and legs, in two other record-setting performances as a member of both the 400 and 800m relay teams, which finished seventh in the 800m relay and eighth in the 400m relay. Baldwin, Raelee McCurdy, Marcy Schaal and Kaley St. Peter combined efforts to post a PR time of 50.84 in the 400m relay preliminaries and 51.11 in the finals. Baldwin, Schaal, St. Peter and Beki Atchley set another PR for the 800m relay in preliminaries (50.84) and placed seventh in finals with a 1:48.46.
Autumn Eddy, Tayler Huntley, Damin Harrison and Kaelynn Porter teamed to run a 2:02.34 for 17th in the 800m sprint medley and McCurdy, Alexa Huff, Jessica Dexter and Atchley clocked a 10:36.06 to finish 17th in the grueling 3200m relay.
After failing to qualify a sprint relay team in 2018 (the 1600m relay team is coached by mid-distance coach Pablo Payan) the girls qualified for state in three sprint relays. "I was super proud of them," said Payan.
In other individual events, Atchley finished 14th in the 400m dash in 1:01.37 and had a 1:00.5 to her credit to qualify for state.
Sara Geddes placed 12th in high jump (4-10) and Hannah Sterns failed to clear the opening height.
The Panthers picked up seventh place points in long jump with St. Peters' 16-10.5. She had a state qualifying jump of 17-9.
Senior Reagan Clay uncorked a throw of 36-0.75 to finish seventh in shot put with sophomore Keely Porter finishing 14th (33-2).
Porter's throw of 114-3 in discus was good for fifth place.
There was a scoring drought for the Panthers at state, but there were several PRs recorded during competition.
Two of the PR numbers came from senior John Ames in the 3200m run and the 3200m relay. Ames' 10:00.64 in the 3200m run was six seconds faster that his previous PR and may also be a school record.
The 3200m relay team (Ames, Shad Lewis, Andrew Toole and Hunter Goff) established its season-best time at 8:35.23 to finish 16th in the state's annual track meet.
Ames finished 11th in the open 1600m with his time of 4:38.58. He owns a 4:34.93 as a PR and that number is just shy of Dustin Ownbey's school record, 4:34.82, set in 2014.
Kula Moo, Dah Wah, Jarett Hernandez and Ed doh Htoo notched a season-best 44.56 in the 400m relay to finish 11th.
Htoo, Colton Johnson, Noah Nortnik and Hernandez tied the 800m relay PR time of 1:34.18 to place 15th.
Gauge Lockhart finished 10th in shot put (45-4.5) and was 13th in discus with a throw of 128-9. He had qualifying distances of 45-7 and 138-1, respectively.
