ADRIAN – Adrian high school sprinter and jumper Roby Young has garnered local attention on the track all season.

Last Friday, the Antelope senior took it to a new level.

At the 1A Special District 4 track and field championships in Baker City, Young ran the 200-meter dash in just 26.41 seconds — breaking a 38-year-old school record. She also broke her school’s record in the triple jump with her new personal best of 34-feet, 5.5-inches.

She is headed to the state championships at Western Oregon University this weekend, where she is the No. 1 seed in the 200-meter dash. She is also seeded third in the 400 and high jump events . . .
