TWO RECORDS FALL AS TRACK SEASON ENDS

Two more track records fall.

Two more high school track and field records were broken Friday night in the final IIAAG track meet of the year at the Okkodo track.

The Guam High Panthers boys 4×400 team composed of Isaac Ventura, Sincere Powell, Joshua Cote and Solomon White ran a record time 3:33.13 to break an 18 year-old record.

The Panthers ousted the 1999 JFK Islanders 4×400 team of Desmond Mandell III, PhilAm Garcia, Oliver Sicat and David Nielsen. The previous record held by the Islanders was a time of 3:34.73.

Michael De Leon

Another High school track and field record was broken! Okkodo’s Michael De Leon broke a 16 year-old high school javelin record, throwing a distance of 45.91 meters. The previous record was held by John Salas who broke the record on April 24th, 2001 with a distance of 45.68 meters.

The IIAAG All-Island Meet is scheduled for next week Friday so expect to see more records broken.
