McNary T&F

McNary T&F hosts Saxons, set 129 PRs in Wednesday meet

McNary track and field hosted the South Salem Saxons on Wednesday in a day where the junior varsity squad fared better than the varsity overall, but more than half of the McNary results were personal records. 

The Celtics set 129 personal records in the 201 results they posted as a team, as well as 11 season records, and came away with 34 first place finishes against the Saxons. 

Both boys and girls junior varsity teams won their overall team competitions. The JV girls cruised 79-33, while the JV boys were a bit closer, overtaking South Salem 69-51. 

The varsity squads for the Celtics weren’t able to overcome the Saxons, though. The boys were narrowly edged out 77-68, while the girls trailed 83-59 at the end of competition.

The Celtics swept the top-three spots in 10 events, though five of those were junior varsity events with no Saxon competitors. 

In the five that did have South Salem participants, there was only one varsity event, the shot put. Jacob Hurst placed first, with teammates Miguel Torres Pineda and Jesus Jimenez Trujillo in second and third. Hurst threw 40-feet, 11.25-inches. Pineda had a distance of 38’5.75” and Trujillo 31’11.5”. All three were personal records.

The junior varsity girls took the top-10 spots in the 100 meters. The Celtics comprised 14 of the 17 spots in the JV 100 meters.
