Basalt girls relay team breaks school record at state meet in Lakewood
The state track and field championships got underway Thursday at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood, with a handful of Basalt High School athletes taking part.
The highlight came in the Class 3A girls 4×800-meter relay, which saw Basalt finish sixth in 9 minutes, 57.17 seconds, which is reportedly a new school record. That team consists of seniors Jenna Curnow and Carly Robinson, junior Megan Maley and freshman Sierra Bower.
Peak to Peak won the race in 9:20.84.
Football standout Noah Williams competed in the boys 100-meter dash prelims earlier in the afternoon, finishing 12th in 11.24 seconds. Only the top nine make finals.
In the 3A girls 3,200-meter run, Bower finished 11th in 12:08.85.
In the 3A girls 400-meter dash prelims, Maley finished 17th in 1:02.06. Again, only the top nine make finals.
