Arrows change record board at Metro Health Invite
The combination of great weather and great competition allowed some Lowell athletes to put their stamp on the Lowell T & F record board as the season draws closer to the end. Lowell’s hurdle crew took the spotlight in the 100/110 hurdles as all three entries set personal records led by Josh Rau breaking his school record winning in 14.66, while Theresa Judd snagged runner-up honors establishing a new 100H record of 15.22 breaking the old record of 15.24 set by Chris Hildenbrand in 1983. The crew closed out the event as Emily German took 6th place in 16.96 for her new PR. Later in the meet the same crew had similar results in the 300 hurdles as Rau snagged the win going 40.62, Judd took 3rd going 47.48 (#3 on LHS record board), and German blistered a new PR of 51.74.
Off the track Kaylee Diamond was doing her own thing as she won the HJ event going 6-06.00 which moves her to #2 on the record board tied with Amy VanEns; and also took second in the LJ going 17-00. She just missed her final HJ attempt a 5-06.75 as her lower calf just brushed the bar. When Diamond got back on the track she joined Julia Tuuri as they set new PR’s in the 200m dash as they finished in 5th and 7th going 27.64 and 27.67 respectively. Katrina Sandman moved up to #7 on the record board as she went 2:30.40 in the 800m, while sister Annika took runner up honors in the 3200m going 11:22 after running a 5:19 in the 1600m.
Three additional Arrows qualified for the meet as John Lothian closed out his Lowell career in the 3200m going 10:29, Keegan Cater tossed the discus 125-06, and Keira Sandman ran 5:42 in the 1600m.L
Josh Rau (110HH/300H), Kaylee Diamond (HJ / LJ) and Theresa Judd (PV) will represent Lowell at the state meet next week at East Kentwood HS.
