Siuslaw junior Ryan Rendon-Padilla launched the javelin a school-record 191 feet, 7 inches Tuesday, a day that marked a number of personal records for Vikings track and field athletes.
Rendon-Padilla eclipsed the school standard of 181-11 set by Trent Reavis in 2017. It also was nearly 10 feet further than Rendon-Padilla's previous PR of 181-7.5, which he posted in winning the 2018 state 4A title.
Rendon-Padilla also won the discus Tuesday with a season-best 119-10.
