Several meet records were set at last Friday’s Vernon Ferguson Invitational track and field meet, hosted by Cheney High School. The Clearwater Indians and Garden Plain Owls were among the teams at the annual meet hosted by the Cardinals.

Preliminary times were used to award medals in the 200 meters, but that event did not count in the team points. Team scoring was frozen after the 800 meters.
