Although the 2020 spring sports season was cancelled by KSHSAA due to the COVID-19 pandemic, at least one area athlete wasn't going to let that stop him from reaching his ultimate goals during his senior track and field season.  St. John's senior Brandon Bates worked all throughout the spring to run his best race, the 800m Run, in a new St. John's school record time.  The new record would also put him at a sub-2:00 800.  He attempted several times through the spring but fell just short, however on Saturday, the day he would've most likely run the 800 at the KSHSAA State Track & Field meet, he finally broke through.  Bates ran the 800m in 1:59.42, which was just ahead of the 2:00.10 record set all the way back in 1964 by Sam Pestinger.  Despite the record not coming during a full event, we have confirmed with St. John's coaches that it will be put on the official record board, wiping away the 56-year-old previous record.  Bates' record time was witnessed by family and friends and some other runners that helped pace him to his best time ever.
