Outstanding relay performances and new team records were the order of the day for the Davis High boys and girls at the prestigious Stanford Invitational track and field meet on Friday and Saturday.

The Blue Devil girls set new program benchmarks in two different relays — the distance medley and the 4×800 meters.

In running to first place in the DMR, Laney Teaford got DHS started, opening up a 10-meter lead in her 1,200 leg. Ellie Eaton followed with a strong 400, then handed to Han-ah Sumner, who equaled her season best in the 800. In closing things out with a 1,600 leg, Sophie Meads never relinquished the advantage. When she crossed the finish line, the Devil time of 12:21.01 was enough to break the team record, set in  2007, by an incredible 15 seconds.

Later, Teaford, Sumner and Meads joined Jeanne-Marie McPherson to set another Davis mark, finishing the 4×800 in 9:30.16. The performance was good enough to put the Blue Devils in fourth out of 27 squads. The quartet broke the program mark of 9:47.16, set in 2009.

A third DHS record fell in the 400 hurdles as Rose Stephens broke her benchmark set last year. Stephens dropped three seconds from her time, finishing fifth in 65.65.

The Devils also had success in the other relays as the girls’ 4×400 squad — made up of Eaton, Sumner, Stephens and Teaford — was third out of 40 teams in a season-best time of 3:59.93. The local boys took seventh out of 49 teams as Ben Salcedo, Maito Okamoto, Alex McIntyre and Blake Croft carried the baton across the line in 3:25.67.

“The girls and boys 4×400 ran very well, each winning their heat,” said DHS coach Spencer Elliott. “The girls ran sub-4 (minutes), which is excellent this early in the year.

“The boys’ 3:25 was excellent as well. The boys are young and, as they get more experience, they will start to believe in themselves a bit more, then watch out. They will be fast.”

Croft also teamed with Paul Mohr, Brian Song and Jaspar Laca to take sixth in the boys’ 4×800, finishing in 8:03.21.

In individual events, Teaford (5:07.46) and Meads (5:11.05) placed eighth and 10th, respectively, in the top heat of the girls mile. Blue Devil Jack Scranton was 12th in his heat of the boys’ mile in 4:28.45, and his 8:51.95 in the 3,000 was good for 10th overall. Eaton was strong in the 400, placing 13th in 58.49.

Davis will be back in action on Friday and Saturday in another big-time meet, the Arcadia Invitational.
