HOUGHTON—The boys and girls indoor track teams for Springville-Griffith Institute recorded a collective six school records at Houghton College Feb. 9.

Payton Rowe was in on three of those records and recorded two individually and one as part of a relay team, while Corrin Sacilowski set a school record and finished in first place in the 1,500 meter racewalk with a 7:25.24 time to round out the records achieved by the girls team members.

On the boys side, Nick Abdo finished second and set a school record in the 600 meter with a 1:24.59 time and was also part of a record-setting boys relay race.

The two school record-setting relays were both at the 4x200. The boys recorded a 1:38.74 time with Abdo, Topher Elkins, Jared Reese and Seth Dash, while the girls recorded a 1:53.84 time with Rowe, Chloe Chamberlain, Evelyn Smith and Sydney Wittmer.
