Goldendale's Austin Williams runs among the pack during the 1,500 meter run at the Mullen-Leavitt Invitational on March 16 in The Dalles. Williams set a new personal record in the 800 on Saturday in Prosser, finishing in 2 minutes, 22.55 seconds.

Eleven different Timberwolves tracksters set new personal best marks during last Saturday's Prosser Rotary Invite as the regular season winds down.

With three regular season meets left including today's South Central Athletic Conference meet in Highland, expect to continue seeing personal bests as the Timberwolves battle for spots in the district and state meets.

Senior Dillon Rising, a week after setting the school record in the 3,200, was one of two Timberwolves who set new PRs in the 1,600. Rising cut down on his previous best time by around a second, finishing in 4 minutes, 30.70 seconds, while Sterling Beasley also set a personal best in the event at 5:26.97. Another distance specialist, Corbin Riley, followed with a new PR in the 3,200, crossing the finish line of the two-mile run in 10:54.76, just under 10 seconds faster than his previous personal best.

Leo Lucatero (57.88 in the 400), Austin Williams (2:22.55 in the 800), Caleb Pittman (18 feet, 4.5 inches in the long jump), and Nicholas Lee (36-06.75 in the triple jump) all added personal bests for the boys.

Ellie Rising, a sophomore who competed at state last season in the 800, dropped her previous best time in the event by close to a second, taking third overall out of the field of 23 runners in 2:23.97.

Also setting personal records on the day for the Goldendale girls was junior Lene Riggers with her 52.96 time in the 300 hurdles, freshman Tiana Watson with her 116-08 javelin throw, and senior Allison Gilliam with her 33-11 leap in the triple jump.

Goldendale continues today with SCAC League Meet No. 3 in Highland before heading over the river for Saturday's Sherman Invitational which begins at 11 a.m.
