It was a busy track season that wrapped up with six medals — the most ever won by Republic at the state meet in Jefferson City. Here’s a look at every school record broken this season.
Gracie Troester’s time in the 800m run. She set that new mark during the sectional meet at Parkview.
Gracie Troester’s school-record time in the 1600m run. She broke that record at state, beating her own record, which had been set in 1981 before she initially broke it earlier this year. Her state time shaved five seconds off her record by itself.
Troester’s time in the 3200m run, demolishing her own previous best mark by about 15 seconds. During the course of the season, she set a new 3200m record several times, but never by as much as she did in her final 3200m run of the season in Jeff City.
The distance leaped by Jenna Belcher in the long jump. She set the new school mark, previously held by Lauren O’Hara, during the sectional meet at Parkview.
The distance reached by Belcher during the triple jump event at the same sectional meet in Parkview. Her triple-jump distance knocked off one of the longest-standing records on the books, set by Glenna Mooneyham in 1992.
The distance Cooper Douglas tossed the javelin on his very last throw of the season and of his career. He tore off the record-breaking throw to earn a fourth-place finish in the javelin competition at state.
The record time turned in by Kristin Probst, Gracie Woods, Rilynn Finley, and Alaina Norman in the 4x400m relay. The team set a new record in winning the sectional meet at Parkview and qualifying for state.
The new school record in the girls 4x800m relay. Kristin Probst, Gracie Woods, Cali Thompson, and Gracie Troester broke the new school mark in qualifying for state at the sectional meet in Springfield.
