RHS tracksters earn PRs

RANGELY I This last weekend was filled with personal records for the Rangely High Panthers track and field team. The team traveled early Saturday morning to Stocker Stadium in Grand Junction to participate in the Frank Woodburn Invitational hosted by Palisade High School.
Among the sprinters was one exceptional shining star, junior Colton Coombs, who took 0.09 seconds off his 100-meter dash, clocking in at 11.91 seconds. He also earned a PR by 1.05 seconds in the 200-meter dash with a time of 24.33 seconds. Both of these times are putting him in good shape for ranking for the state tournament.
Doing very well in the long jump this weekend was sophomore Andrew Morton with a jump of 18-3.75. He shows promise in this event as this was his first attempt at the long jump in a meet in his high school career. He also took second place in the triple jump.
William Scoggins also did well again this weekend. He earned a PR in the 3200-meter run with a time of 10:30.54 which also beat a Rangely junior class record.
The girls’ team also had several very good times with sophomores Aimee Hogan and Tessa Slagle both earning PRs. Hogan ran a 6:10.27 in the mile and placed sixth in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:39.59. Slagle earned ninth in the 3200-meter run, crushing her best time with a final time of 13:47.68. Junior Holly Lepro also stepped up, getting sixth place in both the shot and discus. Her discus distance was 96-11, is an all time personal record.
