Mingus Union High School sprinter Justine Taylor shattered her 100- and 200-meter dash personal records, while fellow senior Ryan Talbot captured gold in the 400-meter and 4x400 relay Saturday, April 5, at the Red Rock Invitational.
The Marauders scored 69 points to finish third in the girls competition, 7.5 points behind first-place host Sedona Red Rock High School. The boys team scored 52.5 points for fifth place.
“We’re seeing a lot of positive things, a lot of PRs,” Marauders head track coach Yancey DeVore said. “I know there’s been a lot of hard workers out there — Talbot, Taylor, Monica Soliz, Heather Calandra, Dakota Hanks, Bradley Gemmill — and you know what? It’s contagious.”
