Central Heights track posts 38 personal bests in three meets

By The Herald Staff

The Central Heights track team has accumulated 38 personal-best performances in the first three meets of the season.

The Vikings had 14 personal bests Tuesday at Pleasanton.

“In the third meet of the season, things generally seem to really take shape and give a good idea of what to expect the rest of the season,” Central Height track coach Troy Prosser said. “One outstanding performance after another.”

Taryn Compton had personal bests in her events and her 300-meter hurdle time (50.87) is listed as one of the top 50 in the state.

David Craft, Luke Cotter and Alexis Haynes also had fantastic performances that earned them medals in their individual events, Prosser said.

“As the times drop and the distances increase, we continue to march seconds, and inches closer to the ultimate goal, Prosser said.

Central Heights will have its regional in May at Pleasanton.

It is always great to experience the facilities for when it counts the most,” Prosser said.
