Tabor Scholl, a freshman runner at West Grand High School, made her mark in the school record book with a 5:08.40 winning time in the girls 1600-meter run at the Randall Hess Invitational Track Meet held prior to spring break.

The time was also fast enough to establish a meet record. Roosevelt High School hosts the Randall Hess Invitational and it annually attracts schools much larger than West Grand.

Scholl’s time eclipsed the school record that had been held by Caitlyn Taussig.

Scholl also won the 800-meter run with a time of 2:21.94.

Also earning points at the meet for the Lady Mustangs were Kristina Ekren, who finished sixth in the high jump with a leap of 4′ 8″. Carly Reynolds, Payton Coleman, Laura Billington and Erica Lucas finished seventh in the girls 800-meter sprint medley relay with a time of 2:04.33. That same quartet finished eighth in the 4 x 100-meter relay with a time of 56.65.

For the boys, Kris Gregory established a personal record in the 1600-meter run with a time of 5:04.32 that was good for seventh place.

Casey Gore cleared 6 feet in the high jump to earn a fourth place finish that was also a personal record for the sophomore.

Establishing personal records for the girls were Iris Melendez in the 200-meter dash and the shot put; Celeste Setliff in the 400-meter dash; and Sky LePage and Shannon Roller in the discus.

For the boys, Michael Lengel set a personal record in the 1600-meter run and Nick Ritschard set his personal best in the triple jump.
