It should be an exciting track and field season for West Jordan schools. 

Copper Hills and West Jordan have both established top times and state records, and the season has just begun.

Grizzly junior Brielle Davis cleared 12 feet 9 inches at the Davis Super Meet at Davis High School on March 16. That surpassed the previous record by 6 inches, established in 2019. She finished fourth as a freshman in 2019 at the state track and field finals. 

Jaguar senior Austin Klingler set a school record and won the national indoor championship in the 800 meters this winter. He has geared up to be one of the top runners in the state.
