“She showed up ready to race Tuesday,” BHHS throwing coach Terry Axel said. “Shaylin Curtis had a great day.”
Curtis’ 5:40.90 first-place finish in the 1,500-meter run wasn’t the only result rolling off Axel’s tongue after the Bruins traveled to Douglas High School for Tuesday’s track meet.
“Samantha Hage had an almost four foot PR,” he added, “that’s huge.”
Hage threw 83-10 to take second place in the discus and improve on her previous best of 80-3.
