The Western Boone track team traveled to Danville on Tuesday evening for its second outdoor meet of the season. The Stars won the girls’ team competition 74-57, and Danville won a close boys’ team competition 67-65.
The highlight of the meet was Alexis Goglia setting a school record in the girls 1600m. Running with confidence and determination, Goglia ran near-even splits for each lap to earn a 22-second personal best and a new school record. Her time of 5:37.3 broke a 33-year-old school record–the oldest girls track record on the books. The previous record of 5:39.0 was set in 1983 by Terrill Reed. Goglia now holds school records in the 1600m and 5K cross country.
Other notable performances at the meet included: Callahan Baxter’s 28.6 in the 200m, Madie Bright’s 13.0 in the 100m, Dylan Kortman’s 45’2.5″ in the shot put, and Ryan Solomon’s 11.4 in the 100m and 23.8 in the 200m.
