POSTED May 14, 2010 10:55 p.m.

The Turlock Junior High Track team finished its season with noteworthy performances at the Harold Pope Jr. Relays, also known as the Stanislaus County Meet, which was held on May 9 at MJC with 22 schools participating.

Seventh-grader Mackenzie Hassett set a county record in the 1600 meters with a time of 5 minutes, 35.53 seconds, topping her runs two weeks earlier, when she broke the school records in both the 1600 (5:33) and 800 (2:35.6). Valerie Cornwall had held the 1600 record since 1989, and Katie Drueen in the 800 from 2003.

The TJHS eighth-grade boys 4x100-meter-relay team also set a county and school record of 47.19 seconds, with Mario Ortiz, Dominic Jack, Logan Wolfley and Jevan Hogan making up the group.  That record was last held by Tom Mendonca, Anthony Harding, Keith Pace and Michael Stump from 2002.

Hogan earlier set a school record in the 100 with a time of 11.41 seconds and the 200 with a time of 23.6 seconds. The 100 record was previously held by Doug Sperry, now the Turlock High girls soccer coach.

Other school records set during the season were by seventh-grader Juan Gonzalez in the boys' 220 yard and eighth-grader Grant Tallent in the 220-yard boys hurdles in 28.3 sec.
