Scottie coach Kayla Larson watches as Frazer's Mya Fourstar clears the bar during one of her high jump attempts at the Top Ten track meet held in Glasgow May 7. Fourstar finished fifth in the event with her mark of 4" 10".

The annual Top Ten track meet was held at the Glasgow High School the evening of May 1. Records were broken, and the list of state qualifiers grew.

Although not as impressive as his recent vault of 16' 9" in Glendive, Garrison Hughes of Sidney still demolished his record 15' 2" vault from the Top Ten meet last year with a new height of 16' 5".

Kaitlyn McColly of Hinsdale is dominating the pits at area track meets, consistently winning at least one, if not both jumping events.

Also breaking records from Sidney was Carter Hughes. He threw the discus 167' 7" to break the old record of 163 feet, set in 1986 by Rob Kubesh of Glendive, and also knocked off the shot put record, which was set by J.C. Murray of Jordan back in 1991 at 57' 5". Hughes threw 58' 6". 

Qualifying for state competition were Baylie Chappell of Glasgow in the 100m and 200m. Coach Tim Phillips noted that her 26.97 in the 200m ranks her seventh all time for Glasgow girls.

Katie Kaiser's 9'6" vault qualified her for state in that event, and tied her for third on the all-time list in Glasgow. The 4x400m girls relay team also qualified for state, with a time of 4:15.54. 

Hinsdale's Kaitlyn McColly punched her ticket to state in the long jump with her mark of 15' 11.25".

According to Phillips, no boys qualified at the meet, but Ellis McKean just missed by .65 in the 1600m, and the boys 4x100m relay was only .51 off the qualifying mark.
