Scoring their most points ever at the Shawnee Mission Relays, the Blazer boys’ track team brought back a fourth place finish last week.

Leading the way was Trent Cochran who took gold and set a new school record in the 3200 with a time of 9:34.07. He beat the old record of 9:35 set by Mitch Loring.
“Trent went into this meet with one goal-a school record- and he accomplished that,” said Coach Brian McGee.
Silver medals went to Dylan Wolford who threw the javelin a personal record distance of 184’6 inches and Jazz Davis cleared 14’0 inches in the pole vault.
A bronze medal went to Colton Goodman who cleared a personal record 14’.
All told, GEHS scored 52 points and Leavenworth took first with 65, STA followed with 62 and Shawnee Mission North took third with 55.
