HEBER CITY — Athletes at the Wasatch Invitational on Saturday turned in some of the best performances of the high school track and field season, particularly on the girls' side.

Wasatch’s Kaitlin Walker ran a blistering 45.12 in the 300 meters, the second fastest time in Utah this year. Walker also won the 100 hurdles with a strong time of 15.35.

Not to be outdone, Richfield’s Bonnie Curtis ran the 400 meters in 57.72, also the second-best mark in Utah this season.

Two other girls also recorded top 10 performances, Spanish Fork’s Alyssa Brown in the long jump and Richfield’s Sammi Beck in the discus.
