April 2, 2008

The Bonner Springs track and field team had a record-setting day at the Baldwin Invitational on Friday.

Jeremy Walker would have set the meet record in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.71 if it were not for his brother.

Jonathan Walker ran the race in a time of 14.69, breaking the record time of 15.0 that had stood since 1982.

Jonathan Walker set another meet record in the 200-meter dash with a time of 22.57. The previous meet record of 22.66 was set in 2001.

Jeremy Walker broke the 100-meter dash meet record with a time of 10.86. The previous record of 10.95 was set in 1998. Senior Ian Briggs finished third in the event.

Jeremy also took first in the long jump. The Walker brothers led the Braves to a second-place finish at the meet. Pittsburg High School won the meet.

The Walkers set two other records in the meet.

The Walker brothers, Briggs and L.T. Lee teamed up in the 400-meter relay to finish with a time of 43.19, over eight tenths of a second faster than the previous meet record from 2000. They also broke the school record. The previous school record was 43.3, which had been set just last year.

The BSHS girls finished tenth overall in the meet.
