It was a record-setting day in Baton Rouge Saturday for the St. Louis Catholic indoor track teams.

 

As the youthful Lady Saints embarked on their run to the Division II state championship, their 4×800 meter relay team (Kendal Touchet-Kylie Hebert-Emma Karam-Kenzie Touchet) set a new school record of 10:18.16.  Saturday’s girls team indoor title was the first in St. Louis Catholic history.  The Lady Saints edged Brusly for the championship, 42-30.

 

On the boys’ side, several more school records were set.  The Saints won the 4×200 meter relay (1:31.62) with Wesley Maze, Pierce Bilbo, Gabe Meyer and Josh Orsot, and they were state runners-up in both the 4×400 meters (Luke Benoit- Josh Orsot-Gabe Meyer-Pierce Bilbo, 3:29.56) and 4×800 meters (Matthew Aleshire-Christian Tabor-John Savoy- Ivan Appleton, 8:47.22).  Wesley Maze also set school records in the shot put (45-7.5), 200 meters (23.30) and 60 meters (7.20), and three Saints new marks in jump events – long jump by Luke Benoit (20-8.5), triple jump by Logan Trahan (36-11) and high jump by Jaden Gallien (5-6).

 

The Saints placed 5th overall as a team with 27 points.
