Not many Peabody-Burns track athletes placed in the top six Thursday at the Wheat State League track meet, but among the few that did, two broke league records.
Cody Partridge broke the record in boys long jump with a leap of 21 feet, 4 inches. Andrew Wedel broke the record in shot put with a throw of 47-10.25.
Coach Kim Topham was proud of Partridge and Wedel’s performances.
“Anytime you have an athlete set a new record, that’s exciting,” Topham said.
Partridge also finished third in boys high jump at 6 feet, and Austin Reynolds placed third in boys 110 hurdles with a time of 17.62 seconds.
Elena Miccone placed fifth in high jump with a clearance of 3-10.
Zeke Castleman placed sixth in the boys 200 at 26.83, and Partridge finished sixth in boys 100 at 12.03 seconds.
Topham said the team is looking forward to participating in regionals next week at Burden.
“Some of our athletes are ranked right up there and should be able to place in the top four and make a state appearance,” Topham said. “We are looking forward to that and seeing what they can do.”
