Knoxville freshman Katie Keitges and the Pella High girls 4×100 meter relay each set school records Saturday on the final day of the 108th Drake Relays.

Keitges ran the 1,500 meters in 4:51.96, good enough for 11th place in the event.

Meanwhile, in a race where half a second separated first and last place, Pella’s four-by-one squad came in eighth. The quartet of Emma Thoreson, Annika Pingel, Paighton Malek and Emily Vos clocked in a 49.47 seconds.

Also, former Knoxville athlete Jacob Moats won the men’s high jump with a leap of seven feet one inch, a new career best.
