Clarification: Walter among school record breakers

Grace Walter

The spring sports wrap-up section that was published in the June 27 issue of the Osakis Review highlighted the seasons for Osakis sports teams by noticing award winners.

The track and field story also listed school records that were set this spring season by Philip Mathews (100-meter dash), Jacob Backes (pole vault), Elizabeth Pahl (discus) and Tianna Stanek (pole vault). Another school record that was not included in the original story was one from senior Grace Walter, who set the new Osakis mark in the 300-meter hurdles at the section meet to qualify for state in a time of 47.71 seconds. That broke a mark that had lasted since 1991 when it was set by Julie Emerson.
