Craig Middle School track concludes season
Bulldog athletes break five school records
Craig Middle School’s track and field teams capped a sensational season with three meets in the past week.
The Bulldogs competed in the Moffat County Night Relays and The Best of the Best in Baggs, Wyoming, before officially finishing the year with the rescheduled Soroco Invitational Saturday at the Moffat County High School track.
During the event, hosted by Oak Creek, Craig athletes won 14 overall segments of the day, with the boys team winning and the girls placing second as a whole.
Combined with the victories earlier in the week, CMS took first place honors in more than 30 instances throughout the week, whether running, jumping or throwing.
Several school records have been broken throughout the season, as well.
Eighth-graders Victor Silva and Quinn Pinnt both surpassed the records in the boys and girls 100-meter dash, while Carter Severson set a new best in the 800 run.
Additionally, Silva and Severson were part of the record-setting 4×400 relay group along with teammates Jared Atkin and Connor Murphy.
Morgan Nelson also hit a new mark in the eighth-grade six-pound shot put event.
The deadline to vote is Monday, May 20.
