7 Summer Series Records Broken

Tuesday night track meets in Rochester have been going on since the 60’s, and this summer at the Max Velocity Tuesday Night Series there were 7 records broken.  (at least, correct me if I’m wrong)  Remember, records broken this summer are the best performances of 50 summers of athletes competing in this series.

Sammy Watson came home from Olympic Trials and broke Penny O’Brien’s 30-year-old 600m record of 1:39.1 from 1985 with Watson’s 1:33.60 on July 12.  (note: Sammy also won the 800 and 4x400 at the World Junior Championships)

Lanae-Tava Thomas long jumped 21-03 to obliterate the record of 18-11.75 set in 2005 by Viktoriya Rybalko.

Aubrianna Lantrip high jumped 5-8 to break the record of 5-6 held jointly by Mackenzie Sturtz from 2012 and Kimberly DePrez from 2003.

Max Gloskey broke the 110m Hurdles 39" (high school boys) record with a 14.48 to break Anthony Clark's 14.66 from 2015.

Alana Morrow tied Jamie McClary’s record from 2008 in the 100m Hurdles of 14.87.

The 55 is a new event and this year Tre’maine Moore ran 6.54 to break Kelly Brown’s record of 6.59 set last year.   Lanae-Tava Thomas ran 7.04 to break her own record of 7.20 from last year.  Stacking these up against the 50m records.  For the guys, Ben James ran a 5.6 ht in 1984 (=5.84 FAT =6.43 for 55) and Chandler Brown ran a 5.89 in 2007 (=6.48 for 55).  For the girls Sametra Kelly ran a 6.45 in 2007 (=7.08 for 55).
