Local track records fall at Arcadia Nationals

Three members of the SVHS track & field team competed at the Arcadia Nationals over the weekend against more than 500 other programs from around the country. Peter Visser, Wyatt Moore and Asefa Wetzel all performed very well and broke new ground in the process.

The first to race was sophomore Peter Visser who competed in the Rising Stars Mile and ran a time of 4:15 which broke teammate Wetzel’s mark set in 2017. In the 200 meter dash, senior Wyatt Moore ran a 21.76 which broke Matt Hansen’s mark set in 1987. Moore, who was at Arcadia for the first time, finished third overall in the Mens Rated 200 Meter division. Finally, Wetzel ran the 3200 meter in 9:12.49, breaking the school record set just last year by Wesley Kallgren.

The program had athletes in two other venues as well as contingents ran in Rexburg on Friday afternoon and in Shelley on Saturday. At the Madison Invite the Lady Braves scored 85.75 team points to place third. Some of the top finishes included a second-place from Hannah Christie in the 400 meter, Samantha Agerton placing second in the shot put and the 4 x 400 meter relay team also placing second.

The boys scored 59.75 points which was also good for third place. Top finishes included Jesse Loveland placing second in the 3200 meter run and Brandon McDonald placing second in the shot put.
