Eleven GMS track marks fall

Greybull Middle School athletes set 11 new school records during the spring track and field season.

Braeden Tracy was the young Buff most responsible for the assault on the record books, as he established new sixth-grade marks in the 100 meters (12.99 seconds), high jump (5-0), long jump (16-6) and shot put (31-5).

Five school records fell in the sixth-grade girls division. McKenzie Mazur set two of them, establishing new marks in the 1,600 meters (6:15.69) and high jump (4-1).

Brea Terry set a new school record in the 800 meters (2:47.66).

Sydney Tschiffely is the new record holder in the long jump (13-5 3/4).

Tatem Edeler now owns the triple jump record (26-2).

Records in the seventh- and eighth-grade divisions are considered tougher to reach because they span a longer period of time. In fact, some date as far back as the 1970s and 80s.

The only two new records that were set this year in those divisions came in the seventh-grade boys division.  Miguel Gomez had a hand in both.  He set a new mark in the triple jump (35-10 1/2) and joined Jovani Garay, Max Mills and Eduardo Burgos on the record-setting, 800-meter relay team (1:55.56).
