A quartet of local ladies re-wrote the record book at the 4th Annual Rick Scott Open Track Meet at the Crosslink Sportsplex in Clairmont on Saturday.

Jamie Wigmore took 6 seconds off of her own 2013 meet record in the women’s 800m, stopping the clock in 2:26.3.  Jessica Baraskewich (2:30.5) and Jackie Benning (2:31.9) were also under the previous standard in the women’s 800m.

Kirsten Manz also broke a meet record , the women’s 300m, with her winning time of 50.4.

Brandon Wladyko (800m) and Ian Keefe (300m) were the men’s victors in Saturday’s events.
