MILFORD - Spirit Lake Park had another outstanding night at the Okoboji Relays in Milford on Monday. The Indians garnered eight first-place finishes and SLP coach Brad Travis said several athletes set personal records.
"Tonight we had outstanding performances from our young men," Travis said. "We saw huge PR's from almost all of our athletes tonight and had quite a few guys break into the all-time lists.
"Just a few of those were: Kevin Martinson finally capturing the 400 hurdle school record; he has been chasing for a year in the making.
"The weather finally cooperated tonight and we were able to run our 4x100. In doing so we are now ranked 6th in 3A and just .48 off the school record. Plus we set three meet records tonight, in the 1600M, 3200M and 4x200."
