December 13, 2015 - Author: Admin

Congratulations to our SHS Indoor Track athletes who set 6 NEW SPARKMAN INDOOR RECORDS in last Saturday’s “Holiday Invitational!

Jr. Hailey Brown decided to re-write the Sparkman Indoor Record Book in a big way.
Hailey is the NEW SPARKMAN INDOOR RECORD holder in both the Girls 1600m AND the 3200m race. Her time of 5:52.36 in the 1600m beat the old record by nearly 18 seconds!
In the Girls 3200m, her time of 13:30.05 beat, by more than 28 seconds, the previous SHS Indoor record set by Tiffany Davis. Tiffany’s mark had stood since 2001 !

Of note is Freshman Lauryn Hall who came within 2 hundredths of a second of breaking her own NEW SPARKMAN INDOOR RECORD in the prelims of the 60m Dash! She finished 9th, just outside the points in a field of 177 girls!

In the Mens 3200m, Freshman John-David Ray set the NEW SPARKMAN INDOOR RECORD at
11:08.32 beating by .15 hundredths of a second, the record set last seasons by Sr. Bailey Herfurth !

Freshman Shafi Muhammad set a NEW SPARKMAN INDOOR RECORD for the 400m with a time of 55.04 seconds. This beat Samuel Gideon’s record set last year, by .17 hundredths of a second!

In the Mens 4x200m relay our Relay Team smashed the previous record by over 10 seconds with a NEW SPARKMAN INDOOR RECORD time of 1:40.99.

In the Mens 800m run, Sr. Bailey Herfurth set a NEW SPARKMAN INDOOR RECORD with a time of 2:03.10
This beats the record set last season by Jake Russell. Bailey scored points for our Boys team by finishing in 4th place out of the 172 competitors in that race.

Of note – In the Mens 60m Dash, Soph. Jackie Gibson came within 4 tenths of a second of breaking the current SHS Indoor record of 7.30 seconds. That record was set in 2012 by Josh Hayes

Great job Senators!

We had individual State Qualifiers, A NEW SPARKMAN BOYS RECORD, a Boys Team finish of 3rd and for the first time in 16 years … our Sparkman Boys qualified a TEAM for State!

For the girls, Junior Hailey Brown not only PR’d in the 5k, she made the “All Section Team” and individually qualified to compete at State!!!
Also setting new “personal record” times in the 5k were, Soph. Makayla Tomaino, 7th grader Baily Wallace and Sr. Kaitlyn Williams.

For the Boys team It was Senior Seth Graham leading the way! Seth took an Individual 2nd PLACE, made the “All Section Team” and set a NEW SPARKMAN BOYS RECORD in the 5k distance! That’s the way to leave your mark as a Senior!

Also making the “All Section Team” was Jr. Harrison Miller who finished 10th with a new PR time!

We had another 4 Senators finish with PR times in the 5k Distance.
