MAIZE – It was a record-breaking day for the McPherson Middle School seventh-grade girls’ 4 x 100 relay team Thursday in the Maize Invitational.

The quartet of Lexi Kynaston, Berkley Schwartz, Kenzee Godwin and Shelby Yowell broke a 20-year-old mark in a winning time of 54.1, breaking the old record of 54.2.

Kynaston also won the 100 as the Bullpups took first place as a team. Grace Pyle captured the shot put and the distance medley team also took first as did the 4 x 200 relay team.

The eighth-grade girls took sixth, with the 4 x 200 relay team taking first.

On the boys’ side, the seventh-graders were fourth, with Brycen Labertew’s two second-place finishes the top performances. The eighth-grade boys were fifth, with Cody Stufflebean winning the discus.

“We saw a whole bunch of kids have a ton of fun,” MMS coach TJ Jackson said. “On the nicest day we have had so far this year we saw previous PRs (personal records) flying out the window and new PR's coming in droves. One after another athletes were displaying their hard work and dedication to what they have done this year and their improvement was evident. Our motto for the past two years has been “those who stay will be champions." To us that means we don't expect records to be broken or gold medals every week. It means we expect your best effort every time because that is what you deserve from yourself and your team deserves from you.”

The league meet is Tuesday at Salina.
