Six South Tahoe High track athletes set personal records at the Woody Wilson Invitational on Friday at UC-Davis, including Corey Vermillion’s 39.75 in the 300 low hurdles that led to his second-place finish overall.

Vermillion, a senior, also finished seventh in the 100 high hurdles and his time of 15.26 was just two-tenths of a second behind school record holder Tony Brunello. Vermillion’s time in the 300 hurdles was more than a second behind school record holder Ramon Hampton.

Ellen Gallanty finished sixth in the 300 low hurdles with a personal record time of 48.69. Her time was within a second of Faye Clapp’s school record. In the 3,200-meter race, Kate Lambdin, Kimmy Arroues, Anna Lambdin and Jordan Dalton all set personal records. Kate Lambdin finished 11th (11:33.26), Arroues 17th (11:55.25), Anna Lambdin 19th (12:13.76) and Dalton 20th in 12:13.77.

“I’m so proud of their efforts because they haven’t had the work they should because of the snow in March and April,” said coach Dan Wilvers. “So hopefully there’s better things to come for them.

“Corey’s had very little track work, so to see his times coming along so well bodes well for his senior finish. I think coach Mark Curry and Melissa Berry have helped him tremendously with his focus and workouts.”

Matt Bobman had his second-best throw ever in the shot put and finished third overall (50-9 1/4).
