Arguably the one thing that can top a win at the annual Tiger-Grizz Invitational is setting a record in the process.

That was the case for a handful of District 6 athletes Saturday on the final day of the 45th edition of the meet, and for a trio of them, it was twice as nice.

Less than 24 hours after electrifying the Ravsten Stadium crowd by running a meet record and personal best 45.13 in the girls 300 hurdles preliminaries, Skyline High School junior Breanne Herrmann nearly matched that by running 45.19 to win Saturday’s finals.

And she did it with limited vision.

“I actually lost a contact today so it was hard to see,” Herrmann said. “It happened about five minutes before they called us over for the start.”

The 300 hurdles was not her only record-breaking event of the weekend, either. Earlier Saturday, she ran 58.38 to take second in the varsity girls 400 to two-time defending 4A state champion Harlee Hales of Pocatello. The time was not only a personal best, but Grizz head coach Chase Meyer confirmed that it broke Skyline’s previous school record of 58.49 set by Laura Evans in 2003.

Herrmann said she felt more confident this weekend after seeing how she could hang with Hales, who holds Idaho’s all classification 400 state record. Friday gave her a glimpse.

“My prelim time was really close to her,” Herrmann said. “I wanted to see how close I could get to her. I’m really happy with my 58. I hope I can hang on to that (school record) for a while.”

Blake Moseley had much to celebrate as well. The Madison senior won the varsity boys 200 title in 22.81, took second in the varsity boys 100 in 11.25 and anchored the winning 4×100 and 4×200 teams in meet record times of 42.87 and one minute, 28.78 seconds, respectively. Those times came a week after Moseley ran a school record 10.8 for the 100 at the Bonneville Invite.

Skyline’s Zedekiah Davis and North Fremont’s Garrett Hawkes compete in the varsity boys 110 hurdles during day two of the 45th annual Tiger-Grizz Invitational track meet at Ravsten Stadium on Saturday, April 28, 2018. Hawkes eked out the win–15.26 to Davis’s 15.27 John Roark/ jroark@postregister.com

“It’s pretty amazing,” Moseley said. “Me and the guys on my relay teams, we say a prayer together before every race. All of us — Cooper (Poll), Val (Clarke), Karson (Hastings) and Austin (Burrell) — are really close. I think that’s a big reason why we’ve been successful.”

A running back and kick returner for Madison, Moseley said he enjoys the atmosphere of Tiger-Grizz and the community that track brings.

“In football, you have your helmets and pads on and don’t really get to talk to each other that much,” Moseley said. “In track, you have more time to talk and get to know everyone better. You can relax a little more.”

In girls pole vault, clearing a meet record 11 feet, six inches to claim gold provided some nostalgia for Rigby’s Emma Shippen. The old record of 11-1 was set by older sister Eliza, a 2014 Rigby graduate, in 2013, and Saturday was also a personal best for Emma.

“She probably already knows,” Shippen said with a smile. “My mom’s always texting her. I watched her get that record. To break it is really cool.”

Shippen, a junior who grew up watching her five older siblings compete at Tiger-Grizz before getting her turn, said she now has her eye on Eliza’s school record of 11-10 and has aspirations of clearing 12-0.

“I’m going for it,” Shippen said.

The boys 800 provided a coveted Tiger-Grizz gold for Blackfoot senior Derek Thomas, who won in 1:59.95. It was his first Tiger-Grizz gold since winning the freshman 1,600 in 2015.

“It’s a great feeling,” Thomas said. “This is always a fun meet, lots of competition. People come from all over the place.”

Idaho’s two-time defending 4A boys state 800 champion, Thomas held off Rigby’s Joseph Campbell in the final 100 meters to win Saturday.

“It’s just my competitive nature,” Thomas said. “I try to not let them get by me.”

Hales, who also won the girls 800 in 2:23.46 and anchored Pocatello to second in the girls 4×400 in 4:05.69, and Bear Lake’s Jackson Pratt, who won Friday’s boys 3,200 in 9:33.73 and ran a meet record 4:21.25 to win Saturday’s varsity boys 1,600, were voted Athletes of the Meet by coaches.
