By Staff | May 9, 2014

LAKE CITY – The Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire Boys Track Team continued to reset school records and also place well at the Ross Samuelson Relays at South Central Calhoun on Friday, May 2.

“We ran against some very good competition and performed very well as a team and also continued lowering our individual times,” said GT/RA coach David Peterson. “As a team we placed fifth out of 10 (teams) and we were missing two runners so that hurt our score some.”

Marcus Girres set three individual school records as he placed first in the 800-meter run in 2 minutes, 10.03 seconds; second in the 200-meter dash in 23.94 seconds and fourth in the 100-meter dash in 11.56 seconds.

Michael Girres placed fourth in the 200 in 24.37 seconds, fifth in the 400-meter dash in 56.02 seconds and sixth in the 100-meter dash in 11.67 seconds.

In the 3200-meter run, Eric Sundall placed sixth in 11:32.22 while Ethan Eldridge placed sixth in the 400-meter dash in 56.62 seconds. Events that didn’t place at the meet, but still set school records are listed below.
