Craig Sports Briefs for June 8, 2016: Kayla Pinnt speeds to great finish in New Mexico
Recent Moffat County High School graduate Kayla Pinnt excelled during the 41st annual Great Southwest Track and Field Classic Friday and Saturday in Albuquerque, New Mexico, placing first in her division in the 100-meter dash at a time of 12.03 seconds.
Pinnt also took seventh place in the 200 dash, reaching an all-time best of 24.46.
Both times met the standard for the MileSplit Elite silver status, with the 200 also good for gold status.
The meet was the final high school-level race for the runner, who recently won three individual state titles in the 100, 200 and 400 dash and was part of the champion 4×100 relay team to finish her high school career with 10 total titles and a two-time winner of 3A Female Athlete of the Year in track.
Pinnt will compete in the sport further this fall at Colorado State University.
