Six records fell at the Kodiak Quad Meet over the weekend, with the visiting Bartlett Golden Bears setting all of them. The Bartlett girls, on the strength of sprinter Rosie Smith’s performance, took first place, edging the host Kodiak High School Lady Bears 92-to-73.5. Anchorage Christian School was third with 55.5 points, while Port Lions had 18.

On the boys’ side, the home town Bears came out on top with 76 points to Bartlett’s 71. ACS had 25.

Athletes of the meet honors were awarded to Kodiak athletes Jaymi Bethea and Dylan Anthony, who each won four events.
