PHS girls set two school records

Indoor track

STERLING — Two Princeton girls set school indoor records in the Bureau Valley Open at the Westwood Complex Thursday.

Senior Zoe Mead shattered the 400-meter record by nearly three seconds with a time of 1:05.51. It topped the record held by Kim Kloster (1:04.3) since 1984.

PHS junior Colbi Schertz also topped a 23-year-old record in the shot put with a 36-5 on her last throw. She just missed the record last week, PHS coach Pat Hodge said. Lisa Sondgeroth held the record at 36-4 since 1991.

Ann Sims used a personal best 8.69 to win the 60-meter dash. Sims and Mead ran with Casey Schertz and Fran Bowman to place third in the 4x4. Hodge noted Mead ran the two fastest indoor 400s in school history, including her 1:01.2 split in the 4x4.

PHS also gained a second from freshman Michaela Mall in the long jump (14-4 1/2).

Host Bureau Valley took two individual firsts with Regan Weidner in the 1600 (6:04.84) and Lauren Peterson in the 60-meter hurdles (9.1)

The Storm also won the 4x8 (11:01.29) and 4x2 (1:59.59) relays.
