Angelica Collins and Kenny Waring both set new Wando records at the Class AAAA track and field qualifier Saturday at Spring Valley High in Columbia.

Waring won the boys 100-meter dash in 10.61 seconds, nearly a tenth of a second faster than his 2012 state championship time. Collins finished third in the girls 100 at 11.91. Both are new school records.

Waring was also part of Wando’s 100-meter relay team that placed third (42.48). Collins helped the girls 100-meter relay team to a first-place finish (47.35) that would have set a new state championship record.

Peter Pinkney finished eighth (22.11) in the 100 and Junior Kato took second (55.41) in the 400 hurdles. Gauge Wood placed fifth (13-00) in the pole vault, Chance Price fourth (44-07.5) in the triple jump and Terrel Venning seventh (149-09) in the discus throw.
