It was a day of more records for Bellefontaine’s talented girls track and field team Thursday at the Division II regional meet in Piqua.

Sophomore sensation Lauren Carter broke her own school record in the 200, senior Zoe Price broke her own school record in the 300 hurdles and the 400 relay team also set a new school mark.

The 400 relay team eclipsed the record of 50.38 set in 1986.

“We had a tremendous day as we will contest nine qualifying spots Saturday, including the discus,” said BHS head coach Ben Davis. “Lauren Carter qualified in the 400 and broke her own school record last week. It was a tough decision, but we chose to scratch her in that event in lieu of participating in the 400 relay. It paid big dividends as they set a new school record.”
