SYRACUSE — A week after establishing a state-best time in the 800 meters, Davis distance runner Shea Martinez turned her attention to the 1,600 meters at this week’s Davis District Championship.

Not surprising, she went out and established another state-best time.

Martinez blazed past the competition posting a meet and stadium record time of 4:58.42, but narrowly passing the time of 4:58.89 set by Bingham’s Emily Rich in a meet at Davis High.

Martinez was one of eight individual winners for Davis’ girls, who rolled to the Davis District title with 241 points, followed by Northridge with 72 points and Viewmont with 70.5.

Viewmont sophomore Karrie Pead also set a new meet record in the 400 meters with a time of 58.15, the best time in Utah this season.

As dominant as Davis’ girls were, the boys were even more dominant — finishing with seven individual winners and riding incredible depth to a first-place finish with 272 points.

Host Syracuse finished second with 116 points, with Woods Cross in third with 86 points.

Perhaps the most impressive race of the meet was the boys 100 meters. Three Woods Cross sprinters (Josh Barton, Jacopo Spano and Derek Lord) and Davis’ Seth Fortin ran the four fastest non-wind aided times in the state this season.

Stanford football commit Barton won the race with a time of 10.87. Barton followed it up with a fourth-place finish in the 200 meters.

Spano followed up his second-place finish in the 100 meters by winning the 400 meters with a meet-record time of 48.92.

Strong performances were also established in the long jump and high jump.

Layton’s Marcus Kemp cleared 6’08 in the high jump, with Viewmont’s Blake Williams posting a jump of 22’00 in the long jump — both state best jumps in 2013.
