TRACK - Bruins' standout shaves a half-second off his previous record in the event
PORTLAND - Barlow senior Arthur Delaney shattered his own school record in the 400-meter dash Saturday at the Border Duel all-star track meet at Lewis and Clark College.
After warming up his day with a runner-up finish in the long jump, Delaney hit the track for his main event.
'I want to break my school record, that's my focus today,' Delaney said.
He completed the single-lap race in 47.74 seconds, beating his previous mark by half a second and also setting a new standard for the all-star meet.
Centennial's Badane Sultessa was one of three racers to break the meet record in the much-anticipate 800 final, clocking in third at 1:53.42. Marcus Dickson of White River, Wash., won the race in 1:52.60.
Reynolds senior Conner Skiles was East County's other scoring athlete, taking third in the long jump at 21-7.
Team Washington surrendered just one point in the two throwing events to secure the 78-57 dual-meet victory.
