Saturday's second day of Class 2A state track and field meet action proved a worthy successor to Friday when five meet records fell.
Five additional meet records were broken, highlighted by Hopkins junior Taylor Anderson's 100-meter dash victory in 11.71 seconds. He time bettered a meet record and Heather VanNorman's all-time state mark set in 1986.
Anderson also anchored the Royals' winning 4x100 relay in a time of 47.73 seconds, which bested the previous all-time standard set by Minneapolis Washburn in 2004.
The Osseo girls' 4x200 relay set a meet record with a time of 1 minute, 40.22 seconds.
On the boys' side, Park of Cottage Grove senior RJ Alowonle topped a 25-year-old state meet standard by running the 300 hurdles in 36.59 seconds, just off his all-time mark of 36.38 set earlier this spring.
North St. Paul's 4x200 boys' relay blazed to victory in 1 minute, 27.23 seconds to set a state meet record.
Wayzata scored 81 points and won the boys' team title. Lakeville South triumphed on the girls' side, scoring 56.5 team points.
