There were 10 personal records (PRs) and four Haldane School records achieved during the competition, including Marina Martin matching her 55-meter-dash 7.88-second school record from earlier in the season. Coach AJ McConville summed up the day’s events as “a great if not historic meet for Haldane track as we start to turn the corner into racing shape.”
