For 15 outstanding members of the Greybull Middle School track team, the season didn’t end as it typically does at the Yellowstone Conference meet in Lovell. Instead it stretched a couple of days into the following week — and a Best of the Best meet in Riverton.

Coach Renae Waddell said the group “performed very well” in its 2014 finale.

“I hope they realize they can continue to compete in the future,” she said. “And I really hope all of the eighth graders stay out for track next year. They are a hard-working group of kids that will do great things in the future.”

Several more GMS track records fell at the Best of the Best meet, according to longtime record-keeper Ken Jensen. In the seventh grade girls division, Lindsey Mills set a new record in the 1,600 meters, running a 6:11.02 to beat the 6:20.0 set by Layna Sukut in 2003.

Braeden Tracy beat his own record in the 100 meters, running a 12.12, as well as a record he shared with Jared Collingood in the high jump. Tracy and Collingwood had held the record with jump of 5-3. Tracy went 5-4 in Riverton.

Some eighth-grade records also fell in Riverton.

Serenity Kinswoman ran a 2:38.18 in the 800 meters, beating the 2:38.84 set by Kim Frisbee in 1983.

Kristen Collingwood set a new record in the 1,600 meters, running a 6:33.41 to beat the time of Layna Sukut, 2:38.84, which had stood since 2004.

Max Mills set a school record in the 200 meters, running a 24.97 to beat the mark of 25.10 which was previously shared by Skip Anderson (1959) and Roger Gipson (1960).
