Pal-Mac's Shelby Hutton, a member of the Team Raider track club, tacked-on more than two feet to her lifetime-best in the long jump for a first-place finish in her age division and clocked-in with the second-fastest time of her ever-blooming career in the 400-meter dash (63.52) to place second. Hutton also competed in the 100-meter dash for the first-time of her career, crossing the finish in 13.64 seconds to place second. And for an encore, the hard-working Hutton ran an impressive first-leg of the record-setting 4x200-meter relay team that finished first in a new club record 1:46.59.

 

For the next four years, the world of track and field will be heavily occupied by Shelby Hutton. And for those that had front-row seats Tuesday night in Penfield, the impending Palmyra-Macedon freshman’s efforts were but a mere appetizer.

Hutton, a member of the Team Raider track club, tacked-on more than two feet to her lifetime-best in the long jump for a first-place finish in her age division and clocked-in with the second-fastest time of her ever-blooming career in the 400-meter dash (63.52) to place second. Hutton also competed in the 100-meter dash for the first-time of her career, crossing the finish in 13.64 seconds to place second. And for an encore, the hard-working Hutton ran an impressive first-leg of the record-setting 4x200-meter relay team that finished first in a new club record 1:46.59.

Joining Hutton on the 4x200 relay, which beat the previous record by a whopping 12.67 seconds — was second-leg Hunter Robinson, third-leg Allison Phillips, and anchor Hayden Robinson. Phillips also ran the 100-meter dash, finishing second with a new Team Raider record. Hutton’s twin sister, Sarah, competed in the 100-meter dash and high jump as well for the first-time in her career.

For the second week in a row, Seth Bailey proved consistent as ever with another 6-foot, 6 inch clearance in the high jump, equaling his lifetime-best height established one week ago. Bailey finished second overall, only to a University of Buffalo athlete.

Headed for R.I.T. College this Fall to major in art and design, Valerie VanHoesen made her Team Raider debut, placing third in her age bracket with the second-best long jump of her career.
