Records that Fell - and the one that didn't

Day 1 of the UIL State Track & Field meet is over, and while there's a ton of information to talk about (athletes who won two or more events, per se) let's talk about the records that fell - and the one that didn't.

Class 1A pulled its weight in breaking records, considering the majority of its events take place on Day 2. Freshman Rylee Hennig of Aquilla and Gentrye Munden of Blum each jumped 5-04 to tie the existing mark set by Makinna Serrata of Tilden McMullen Co. in 2016. Zoe Burleson of Rocksprings bested her 2017 mark in the discus by more than 11 feet, settling in at 150-04. Austin Zirkel of Medina ran the 3200 in a time of 9:37.69, breaking Jake Merrell's 2017 time of 9:38.23, and Creed Goode of Cross Plains broke a 2016 mark in the long jump (Ladarius Arnett; 22-02) by leaping 22-08.25 for the gold.
