BURLINGTON — A cold damp day did not deter West Franklin High School junior sprinter Josh Napper from having his best performances of his career.

Napper set three school records Monday in the Gene Farrow Invitational in Burlington. He broke his own school record in the long jump for the third time this season at 20 feet, 6 inches.

He bettered his own marks in the 100-meter race at 11.0 seconds and the 200 (22.62). The old mark was 23.04 set by Ryan Newll in 2011.

“With 20-plus schools attending the meet, there was definitely some good competition for all of our athletes,” West Franklin coach Susan Zentz said. “We’re extremely proud of Napper’s accomplishments today. He has a great work ethic not only in track but his other sports as well. But we’re all ready for some warmer weather.”

West Franklin competes Tuesday in Burlington.
