Two Pacific track records fall in Kanto finals
YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan – Two Pacific track and field records fell during Tuesday’s makeup of the Kanto Plain Association of Secondary Schools finals, which were postponed from Saturday due to heavy rain.
Britt Sease, American School In Japan’s speedy senior, broke the region mark in the 400, clocking 48.06, breaking the record set last year by Nile C. Kinnick’s Jabari Johnson (48.25).
Meanwhile, Zama's girls shattered the 5-year-old mark in the 400 relay, clocking 48.54. The old mark was 49.17 set by Kadena in 2012.
“It feels really good,” Zama senior Ti’Ara Carroll said. She teamed with Tasia Nelson, Gwen Anderson and Faith Bryant to break the record. “We’ve put in so much work for this.”
The broken records came less than a week before the start of the Far East meet Monday at Yokota.
