McDonald Sets School Records at Sundown

All Post teams top finishers

Published March 26, 2012 @ 7:57 p.m.

SUNDOWN - "All in" has been the Post High School theme this track season as all three squads placed in the top three positions in their respective categories while witnessing the record breaking performances of senior jumper Corbin McDonald. 

The JV boys again were the top point collectors of the Post teams with 175 points and a second place finish just one shy of tying first place New Deal.  The Lady Lopes put together 85 points and came in third.  The varsity boys, also in third place, tallied 84 points.

McDonald had a stellar day breaking his own high jump and triple jump school records. He landed in the soft pit after clearing a 6'6" high jump pole breaking last year's record by one inch.  McDonald also increased his hop, skip and jump best by 1.5 inches with a 46'0.5" triple jump.  Both efforts were the best of the meet. 

Lady Lope Haily berry accounted for 30 of her team's 85 points placing first in the 200 meter dash, second in the long and triple jumps and second place as part of the the 4 x 400 meter relay with fellow runners Bethany Curtis, Anahica Duran and Kelbie Oden. 

The JV boys' effort was led by first place finishes by the 4 x 100 meter relay team (Christen Pena, David Hernandez, Christian Perez, Bryan Smith), the 4 x 400 meter relay team (Bryan Smith, Alan Alaniz, Freddy Araiza, Campbell Kirkpatrick) and Paden Babbs winning vault of 10' 6".
