EAST PEORIA -- Two records were set Saturday in the 2010 IESA Class A State Track and Field Meet at Eastside Centre.

Tyler Barnas led Walnut Bureau Valley North to the 8A team title by winning the 110-meter high hurdles in a record time of 14.88 seconds and then ran second leg on the school's winning 4 x 400-meter relay. Walnut Bureau Valley North finished with 36 team points, finishing 9 points ahead of runner-up Aurora Christian at 30. Barnas took the baton in the 4 x 400 on the second leg and moved his team to a lead of 20 meters that was never challenged by the field. The relay won in a time of 3:48.82.

Amanda McClain of Findlay Okaw Valley set the 7A girls record in the 200-meter dash winning in 26.71 seconds. The old mark was 26.85 by Johanna Haywood of Altamont in 2007.

Assumption Central A & M won the 7A girls team title with 33 points, while runner-up Peoria St. Philomena scored 23 points.

Caroline Dodds of Champaign Judah Christian won the 8A girls pole vault at 9-7 and missed three times at 10-0.

The school finished third in the team standings with 29 points. Carthage won the 8A girls team title with 48 points.
