Lindsay Grigoriev of Atholton tied an 18-year-old Howard County shot put record and Carrie Selmer of Glenelg broke a 20-year-old meet record in the 3,200 meters during the first day of the two-day Howard County track and field championships yesterday at Oakland Mills.

Long Reach's Timisha Gomez won the high jump (5 feet) and Damara Parrish won the long jump (15-7 3/4 ), and its 800 relay team of Dionne Lambert, Angie Watkins, Jarnae Carter and DaMara Parrish broke a meet record. The three firsts put the Lightning ahead of second-place Glenelg, 40-38, after six events.

Mount Hebron, led by a one-two finish in the 3,200 by Matt Sanders and James Mullaly, respectively, who also both ran on the victorious 3,200 relay team, leads second place Oakland Mills, 39-37.

Andrew Heath's 12-foot pole vault victory helped Wilde Lake into third place at 34 points.

Grigoriev threw the shot 43-3 to tie the county record set by Howard's Laurie Governor in 1984. Grigoriev broke the meet record set by Wilde Lake's Bryanna Herring in 2000.

Selmer ran 11:19.3 to win the 3,200 and broke the meet record of 11:19.3 set by Atholton's Carolyn Forde in 1982.
