Old records in eight events fell Saturday at the Hershey-St. Patrick’s track meet.

Warm sun with little wind made it a perfect day for the invitational, which was held at Hershey. Athletes from 11 schools competed for individual medals. No team scores were kept.

Two Brady girls were impressive in the early season meet. Together they won eight events and set four new meet records.

Competing in the distance events, Lady Eagle Emery Swan amassed four golds. She set a meet record in the 800 with a time of 2:24.49. She also swept the 400 and 1600 and was a member of the winning 4x400 team.

Michaela Jurjens earned four golds, including a meet record time of 48.75 seconds in the 300 meter hurdles and a 10-foot pole vault, which was also a meet record. Jurjens was also on the winning 4x400 relay team that set a new record of 4:23.815, and, she won the 100-meter dash.

Eagle teammate Tara Callahan won the shot put, setting a new record with 39’-9” throw, and she picked up another gold medal in the discus.

Mullen’s Addy Vinton, won both the high jump and long jump, and St. Pat’s Kaleigh Kummer won the triple jump and was on the Irish 4x100 winning relay team.



For the boys, St. Pat’s broke two meet records while winning six events.

Chase Ochs picked up four golds when he took the 800 with a new record time of 2:02.30 and was a member of the Irish 4x400 relay that ran a record setting 3:37.55. Ochs picked up a victory in the 1600 and earned his final medal as a member of the 4x100.

James Schroll added four firsts for the Irish with wins in the 100 and 200 and as a member of both the winning 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams.

Hershey’s 4x800 relay team won the race and set a new meet record in the process, finishing in 8 minutes, 40 seconds.

Eli Huebner was the only Panther to win multiple golds. He won the 3200 and was a member of the winning relay team.

Three other schools had athletes who won more than one event.

Tyler Swisher of Sandhills-Thedford won both the shot and discus. Brady’s Colton Lovitt took home wins in the triple and long jump and Mullen’s Lance Moore won both the 110 and 300 hurdles.
