After competing against the best of Track and Field's 3A athletes at the State Meet held at BYU over the weekend, the Carbon High Dinos walked away with plenty of honors and promise for next season.

Head coach Jimmy Jewkes said the team did well overall and left the meet with personal best times in many events.

Garrett Marsing broke the school record in the 800 M after posting a time of 1:57.05 good for third place. The old school record was made in 1980 at 1:57.95.

Kayleigh Potts took fifth in the girls high jump, completing a goal of making it to the podium during her last meet as a Dino.

The girls medley team ran a season best 4:34.15, Jewkes said. Wyatt Hansen, in his first year of competing in track, cleared a jump of 5'9".

Sophomore Dallin Quinton competed in three events including the 100 M, 200 M and the boys medley. Jewkes said the experience Quinton gained as a young athlete should help him over the next two years.

"We had a young team and a lot of the athletes had improved a lot over the season," said Jewkes. "We got our feet underneath us this season which should help us improve a lot going into next season."
