Mount Si sprinters break school records

Wildcats Jacob Hall and Hailey Weir collectively broke three school records last month.

Two fast Wildcats spent the last month rewriting record books.

Over the latter half of April, Jacob Hall and Hailey Weir, sprinters on Mount Si’s track team, collectively broke three school records.

Hall, a senior, led things off at the Pasco Invite on April 15, covering 100 meters in 10.76 seconds — a new school record and leading time for the KingCo League Conference so far this year.

Hall bested the previous school record of 10.91, set by Jacob Belceto in 2017, becoming only the second Wildcat to run under 11 seconds.

He also ranks second in KingCo at 200 meters, and has the third fastest time in school history, at 22.18 seconds.

Meanwhile, Weir, a junior, had a monster end to the month of April, breaking records at both 200 and 400 meters within days of each other.

During an April 27 tri-meet against Newport and Evergreen, Weir covered 400m in 57.52 seconds, breaking a school record of 58.74 that had stood since 1978.

Then, at the Shoreline invite in Seattle on April 29, Weir ran the 200 meters in 25.12 seconds, breaking a 2015 school record of 25.38 set by Karlie Hurley.

Weir currently leads the KingCo Conference in all three sprint events (100, 200 and 400) and holds the second fastest 100 meter time in school history.
