Mac-Hi track athletes post personal records at invite


KENNEWICK - Fast Times at Southridge High was a good time for Mac-Hi track athletes here Saturday.

Eight regional high schools competed at the event. All but two Pioneers had personal bests, said Mac-Hi coach John Milleson.

"I'm very happy with the progression and where people are going," Milleson said. "We're looking real good."

Tony Ng placed 12th in the high hurdles at 18.20.

"He had a great performance today," Milleson said. "It was the first time he's ever three-stepped all the hurdles in a race, so we're happy with that. We need to work on bringing his time down but he's got the three-step all figured out."

Kathleen Hopkins placed fifth in the girl's intermediate hurdles with 51.86.

"She had an outstanding performance this early in the season," Millseon said.

On the boys intermediate hurdles, Lucas Simpson dropped three seconds off his previous best to finish in 19.44.

The girls' relay team also improved, finishing fourth in 55.72.

"They were really sharp today," he said. "We're happy they're coming around."

Overall, it was a good meet for the Pioneers.

"There were great performances by everybody," Milleson said. "Everybody can be proud of it."

Mac-Hi competes next week in its Carnival of Speed. About 700 athletes from 24 teams will attend.
