Rawlins senior Sydney Thorvaldson continued her assaults on state indoor track marks Saturday at the Kelly Walsh Invitational in Casper.
Thorvaldson, who set state records in the 800-, 1600- and 3200-meter runs at last year’s state indoor meet, bettered two of those marks Saturday at Natrona County’s Mustang Activities Complex.
She won the 800 with a time of 2 minutes, 13.37 seconds, bettering her time from earlier this season (2:13.69) as well as her state-record time of 2:15.35. Her time of 4:46.54 in the 1600 was nearly 10 seconds faster than her state mark (4:56.34) and more than 6 seconds faster than the 4:52.56 she ran earlier this season.
Other two-event winners Saturday were Kelly Walsh’s Ani Brown (200, 400) and Laramie’s Taylor Gardner (long jump, triple jump) for the girls; and KW’s Darius Wiggins (55, 400) and Kyson Miller (800, 1600); and Laramie’s Travis Judd (long jump, triple jump) for the boys.
