The Odessa Relay Meet was held on Monday, May 2nd, and the Warriors had an outstanding performance. St Pius X finished third place overall out of six teams, including: Smithville, Odessa, Sion, Center and Wellington-Napoleon.
“Setting the medley record, Senior Jake Taylor, Junior Ryan Vutich, Senior Jacob Cummings, and Junior Sean Bryant was great,” said Head Track Coach Mr. Jeff Lynch.
The medley team beat the record by an astounding seven seconds. Cummings also previously broke the record for the Boys’ 400 meter dash.
“I was really excited, but at the time I was pretty tired too. That’s mainly what I was feeling,” Cummings said.
On the side of the throwers, Juniors Isabel Ringel, Angel Manning and Senior Shannon Mcilhenney all set personal records in the javelin, and the throwers’ 4×100 set a record of 52.2 in their race.
Also, Junior Lucas Salinas, Sophomore David Kelliher, Junior Nick Jamerson, and Tommy
Teson all participated in the relay, and showed off their speed when it counted.
“[My] shotput destroyed everyone. Also, watching Ryan sprinting in his medley was the best part, and he set a school record,” said Salinas.
The team will compete at Smithville on Friday, May 6, at the Conference Meet.
