Walled Lake Northern seniors Ava Epley and Ava Kurczewski set a new school records over the past week in both track and field events.

Kurczewski was one of three Northern distance runners to compete in Romeo’s Barnyard Elite Mile on Friday, which is nine meters longer than the 1600 meter. Kurczewski raced against the 50 fastest girls in the state of Michigan and finished as one of just 13 runners to break the five-minute mark. Kurczewski crossed the mile mark at 4:59, which converts to 4:57.92 in the 1600 meter and a new school record. She broke her previous school record of 5:05.71, which she set at the same event a year ago.

Epley etched her name in the school record books on Tuesday at Milford. The senior leaped an incredible 5 foot 2.5 inches in the high jump to set the new Knights mark.
