School Record Holders


Stella Meyers, S

The Tracy High track team is full of exceptional athletes. All of the athletes put in hard work and they go to practice every day in preparation for meets. There are many school track records that have been set over the years.

This year Tracy High junior Danielle Bacon beat the 400 meters record by running that distance in 58.41. The previous record was 59.41.

“I knew I had a chance to beat the record when I ran 1:01 split time in the 4×400 meter relay sophomore year. I realized I was two seconds away from the record,” Bacon said. She put in a lot of hard work to beat this record.

“A lot of people were really optimistic about me beating the record so it motivated me more. I trained a lot during the offseason. I worked on my speed and worked a lot with weights. I also wrote that time on my binder or on a whiteboard in my room to remind myself to work toward it,” Bacon said.

Tracy high senior Ava Cavallaro set the shot put and discus records. Cavallaro set the mark last track season as well she threw 40’4 for shot put and 126’3 for discus.

“I never really knew I was going to beat it, but I started throwing really far at practice and realized I had a chance to beat both records. Training mostly consisted of lifting and working a lot on my technique. I would also stay after practice to throw more or throw on the weekends to get better,” Cavallaro said.

The disc record was 119’4 and shot record was 35’6 before Cavallaro beat them. The disc record was set in 1984 and the shot record was set in 2015.

Cavallaro qualified at sections and will be heading to masters along with Bacon.

An honorable mention is junior Caden Fry. His current personal record (pr) for pole vault is 14’6 and the school record is 14’7. He is extremely close to hitting and breaking the school record in the future. He has put in lots of hard work to jump 14 feet 6 inches.
