North Platte High School senior Trevon Weaver broke school records in the 100 and 200 meter races at districts on Wednesday.

At the A-4 meet at Omaha Bryan high school, Weaver won the 100 and 200. In the 100, he ran a time of 10.65, beating both the previous school record he set last week at the GNAC meet and runner-up Shannon Brewer Jr. of Omaha Creighton Prep by four-tenths of a second.

In the 200, Weaver broke the 49-year-old record previously set by former NPHS teacher and assistant football coach Bob McFarland of 22.13 with his winning time of 21.89 seconds. He narrowly defeated Brewer again, this time by five-tenths of a second.

In addition to his two first place finishes, Weaver also qualified for next week's state meet in the long jump with his third place finish at districts.

With Weaver's efforts, the North Platte boys finished in fourth place in districts with 65 points. Lincoln Southwest was first with 138 points. Creighton Prep was second with 133 and Omaha North was fourth with 108.

Delano Hernandez was the other district champion on the day for the Bulldogs. Hernandez won the pole vault with a height of 13'6". Teammate Jacob Harvey was second at 13'2".

NPHS had three other state qualifiers. Two were in the discus with Joey Larson finishing second and Elliott Purdy getting fourth.

Peyton Smith was the other qualifier finishing third in the high jump.

For the girls, Alli Skala won the shot put and also qualified in the discus. Skala won the shot put with a throw of 41'3" and in the discus she finished third.

She was the only individual state qualifier for the Lady Dawgs who finished sixth with 22 points. The district was won by Lincoln Southwest with 173 points.
