IMS track records fall

Iola Middle School's track records in the discus and 800-meter run had stood since the 1970s — until Wednesday. Tre Wilson holds the discus record with a 150-foot heave, while Noah Showengerdt ran the 800 in 2:13.

A pair of long-standing Iola Middle School records fell by the wayside Monday.

Iola hosted the Pioneer League Meet to wrap up the 2022 season, four days later than normal after rainy weather postponed the event.

Athletes were greeted at Iola’s Riverside Park with unusually warm temps in the upper 80s and a veritable wind tunnel-like gust out of the south most of the day.
