Brent Part of FOUR Cibola Track Records

Brent's goal when he was a freshman at Cibola was to get his name on the the gym wall for track. He ended up being part of EVERY SINGLE RELAY that broke Cibola High School Boys Track records!

He was part of last year's 4x100 relay, 4x200 relay, 4x400 relay, and we just found out that they had the wrong time listed for the old 1600 medley relay school record and that Brent's group (when he was a sophomore) also broke that school record! They will update the wall this summer with his team's time in the 1600 medley. AMAZING JOB BRENT! He is the only runner from Cibola who was on all four of those record-breaking relay teams.

NOTE: his 4x200 and 4x400 relays came in first last year at state! His 1600 medley relay team barely lost 1st at state in the last few seconds ending up in 2nd place (2006).

Brent also holds Cibola freshman boys track records in three events: 200 m race (23.03 seconds); high jump--three way tie for first (5'10"); and the long jump (21' 1/2").

PS: Sorry if this post sounds too "braggy"...I just never imagined that he would, not only meet, but surpass his goal!

Below are pictures from the school (you can click on each picture to view in a larger format)...

The Cibola Boys Track Team was the first Cibola boys sports team to win a state championship in 25 years! (The golf ones were individuals winning at state--not the CHS golf team).

The coaches put the banners we had made up in the school concourse. We heard that there will be about 100 boys signing up for track for the 2009 season! How cool is that! Kudos to the best coach in ANY SPORT...Kenny Henry! Coach Berniger and Coach George are also amazing track coaches!

Way to go Brent! And I don't think you are being braggy. You are celebrating your son's success, which is seriously worth celebrating! That's awesome!
