“The 4×100 relay team of Natalie Durish, Grace Carroll, Kaitlyn Guth, and Marley Kline set a new school record in the time of 52.7 seconds. The previous record, set in 1994, was held by Jackie Wolbert, Jaime (Albaugh) Sherbine, Marcy (Nale) Bauer, and Holly (Kapp) Bowser who ran the relay in a time of 53.1. Congratulations, ladies. 

“Also, Mason Burford tied the school record of 15.4 in the 110 meter hurdles. He joins Adam Wolbert (2005) and Joe Dean (2012) as co-record holders. Great job, Mason.”
