Bartels makes history for SHS track and field


BROOMFIELD – Summit High School track and field records aren’t broken every day. Plenty of seasons come and go, in fact, with the Tigers’ many school records remaining intact. But not this one.Will Bartels became the first Tiger in two years to break a school record on Saturday by running the 200-meter dash in 24.29 seconds at Holy Family’s Gator Invitational. Current Duke University runner Whitney Anderson was the last Tiger to shatter a school record, a feat she accomplished in the 3,200 run.”(Will) has improved leaps and bounds between this year and last year,” Summit coach Kristy McClain said. “He’s really found his rhythm and were impressed by his accomplishments.”Summit’s top female finisher Saturday was Madeleine Child, who took second place in the 300 hurdles with a time of 51.36.”She’s really been attacking the hurdles the last few meets,” McClain said. “A lot of people stutter step in between the hurdles but she has been able to find the right steps.”The Lady Tigers 1,600 relay team of Child, Katie Sodergren, Catherine Clark and Jordan Cooper took third place at the 15-team invitational. Sodergren also took fourth in the triple jump and fifth in the 100 meters. Nadi DeJulio finished seventh in the high jump.
