Quincy boys win CliftonLarsonAllen Invite

 Kleyn leads Lady Jacks at Quincy Invite

Samantha Kleyn is closing in on a school record in the 300 hurdles.  At this time the junior .03 seconds off the record set by Krystal Bowman in 1994.  Bowman ran the race in 47.70 and on Saturday at the CliftonLarsonAllen Quincy Invite Kleyn posted a time of 47.73.

“I’m excited,” said head coach David Stoddard.  “I will tell you that.  The last three meets she has PRed.

“She’s running harder.  She’s just figuring it out.   It’s how bad do you want it.”

On the boys side, Travis Harris, Spencer Elmore, Luis Camacho and Carlos Sanchez have quietly put together a fast 4×400 relay team.  They opened the year with a three-minute, 51-second race at the Ray Cross Invitational.

On Saturday, the foursome clocked in at 3:35.54.  That is the second fastest 1600 relay any Quincy team has run in the past four years.  Last year the team had a 3:34 personal best, but it was at the end of the season.

“That was a five-second PR,” said coach Cory Medina.  “That same team ran at Cashmere and had a 3:41, so everyone had their best race.  Harris ran the first 400 in 54.74, followed by a 54.86 by Elmore, while Camacho had a 53.73 and Sanchez’s anchor leg was in 52.74.

The relay team won their race to help the Jacks win the team title with 87 points, eclipsing second plasce Ephrata who scored 78.5 points.
