Athletes in the Stanislaus District competed in the 18th annual Stanislaus County Track and Field Championships at Turlock High School on Friday, March 8, 2019.

Since 1996, former Turlock High sprinter Lexy Bethel held the school record in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.40 seconds.

That record was broken Wednesday in the third Central California Athletic League Meet when Bulldogs freshman Kylee Redman ran 12.36 at Joe Debely Stadium.

Redman won the race by almost a half-second as Turlock junior Katja Guerrero finished in second in 12.71.

It was a quick day for sprinters as Turlock senior Sammy Wilson won the boys 100 in 10.72 and Pitman senior Quincey Williams won the 200 in 21.97. Wilson’s time is the fourth fastest in the section and Williams’ is fifth according to athletic.net.

Redman’s time is the sixth best in the Sac-Joaquin Section and the top time by a freshman.

Fortunately for Bethel, she still holds the school-record in the 200.

The CCAL championships are scheduled for April 30 at Joe Debely Stadium.
