Homoly and Kazmaier Break Missouri Track State Records

With a lot of season left to go, we've seen numerous great performances by Missouri Track athletes. Amongst those great performances include two state records being broken so far. 

Rachel Homoly (Liberty) broke the state record in the pole vault which was held by Khristen Bryant (Columbia Independent) at 3.99m in her first high school meet with a vault of 4.01m. She went on to break that last week at the Jerry Crews Invitational with a vault of 4.15m. That vault is currently sitting as the fourth highest vault in the United States so far this season, and is third highest vault ever recorded by an American sophomore. 

Bryce Kazmaier (Francis Howell) is the other new record holder. He and teammate Mason Brock both threw over the previous state javelin record of 59.13m that was held by Isaiah Martin (Hillsboro) at the Todd Bizzell Relays. Kazmaier threw 64.32m to obliterate the record, while Brock threw 59.49m placing second but still beating the previous state record. Kazmaier stands currently as the top high school javelin thrower in the United States, and Brock currently sits at ninth in the nation.
