SIKESTON - Many track and field records at Sikeston High School have been broken during the season, especially by the girls. But there are some records that will most likely stand for many years. A few of those records are George Woods' 60-foot, 11-inch shot put throw; Dennis Snelling's 10.61 time in the 100-meter dash; and Art Jackson's 20.98 in the 200-meter dash. Some of those records are in jeopardy today and tomorrow at the 4A state meet in Jefferson City. David Chessor, pole vaulter, Melinda Dame, 800-meter run, Chantel Sparks, 3,200-meter run and Mark Deuster 800-meter run, will be competing for state honors. The current all-time record holder is Dawn Hurley who holds seven individual and relay records.
