Record-setting performances highlight Banks track meet

TRACK and FIELD: Banks athletes set two new javelin records at dual meet against Scappoose

Two school records were toppled last Thursday when Banks traveled to Seaside for a Cowapa League track and field meet.

Trevor Lundsten and Erika Atkinson each established new Banks records in the javelin. Lundsten's toss of 174 feet, 10 inches easily won the meet, and it became the third-best throw in the state at the 4A level this season. Lundsten, who also won the shot put and discus events, helped lift Banks to a 75-70 team victory.

Atkinson, meanwhile, won the meet with a monster throw of 124 feet, 3 inches - the second-best 4A mark of the year. Atkinson added a victory in the shot put and 100 meters, but the Banks girls lost to Seaside, 78-67.

Other Banks winners included Matt Cutone, Brad Markham, Brad Brekke, John Fellas, Felicia Wilson, Jessica Markham, Linda Kinsky and Jasmine Teters.
