Celt Daniel Brattain has been battling a sprain for much of the season, but it didn’t stop him from breaking his own school record, 14.62 seconds, in the 110 meter high hurdles two weeks ago.
He followed up that achievement by winning the 110 in 14.85, the 300 meter hurdles in 41.81 and the long jump with a mark of 20-08 in a dual meet with West Salem High School last week.
“It was only my second time running the 300 this season and I got my steps down, but the time was still slower than I would have liked,” Brattain said.
The Titans narrowly won the meet with a 73-72 final score in boys events, but the Lady Celts topped the Titans in dominating fashion, 97-48.
For the boys, McNary’s Jon Kiser won the javelin with a toss of 145-01, but he’s hoping longer marks are still ahead.
“The top guy in the league is at 163 and I’d like to beat him, but my goal for the moment is just improving each time and hitting 150,” Kiser said. His personal record is 149-05.
