The Page Middle School track teams had excellent showings at the Lake Powell Invitational on April 19, with several runners posting personal records (PRs), several first place finishes and even a new school record.

The boys and girls teams both placed first. 

Kaia Mansker set a new Page Middle School record in the 100-meter dash with a time of 13.75 seconds. 

The boys 4x100-meter relay team set a new Page Middle School record with a time of 52.05 seconds. The team is made up of Damian Bravo, Zach Smith, Andrew Hawker and Jaiden Jordan. 

Kora Tappan took first place in the 100-meter hurdles.

Logan Rivers took first place in both shot put and discus.

Maya Cambridge won the 400-meter dash with a time of 70 seconds flat. She also won the long jump with a leap of 12 feet 4 inches.

The girls 4x100-meter relay team took first place. The team includes Kimi Kiwano, Maya Cambridge, Yamilee Ramos and Kaia Mansker.

The boys 4x800 team took first place with a time of 10:22. The team consists of Noah Reid, Alek Scott, Troy Touchin and Justin Rivers.

Nyall Prather finished the 1600-meter with a time of 5:06. He is currently ranked ninth in the 1600-meter in Arizona.

Jaiden Jordan set a new page Middle School record in the 200-meter dash last week with a time of 25.49 seconds. 

“Both the boys and girls teams have been doing very well this year,” said track coach Jonathon Prather.

“They have been dedicated to the process of getting day by day, week by week, and setting new PRs because that’s what they can control. Each week, our goal is to PR and get better every week. If we place, that’s awesome, but becoming better every day is our goal and these kids have done that, and I’m so proud of their effort yesterday. It was pretty cold, windy conditions and they came through with both team titles, lots of new PRS set, and a great workout all around for both teams going into the championships next week.”
