Best on the track
Two state records — who else can it be but Kenzo Cotton of Papillion-La Vista? The record-holder in three events (100, 200 and the 400 relay) has set the bar high for his senior season in 2014. He may expand his horizons, too, to the 400 meters.
Best in the field
Kearney’s Luke McNitt notched a sweep of the Class A weights by winning the discus with a gold-medal distance of 171-1. None of Saturday’s field events generated an all-time mark.
Two freshman girls with splashy state-meet debuts were Erin Lee of York, who beat the defending champion in the 1,600 and also ran on the winning 1,600 relay in Class B, and Chloe Akin-Otiko of Bellevue West, gold medalist in the 100 and 200 and Class A champion in the long jump.
