One West York track and field athlete broke his own school record on Tuesday, and another knocked down a record that stood since 1982.

The record performances came in the Bulldogs' track and field meet at home against Susquehannock. Final team results were not immediately available.

Freshman Tesia Thomas set the girls' long jump record, breaking the mark set by West York coach Julie Haynes in 1982, according to the school's athletics Twitter account, @GoWYBulldogs. Thomas jumped 17 feet, 5 1/4 inches.

It's a standout start to yet another sports season for Thomas, who this week was named a YAIAA girls' swimming all-star. She also starred for the Bulldogs' volleyball team in the fall.

Meanwhile, senior Luke Hoffman broke his own school record in the discus with a throw of 172-5. Hoffman is the defending YAIAA champion in the event, qualifying for the state tournament last season as a junior. He was a GameTimePA track and field all-star last season.

In other action, Red Lion's Madisen Kling threw the discus 144-10, breaking a 28-year-old school record set by Nan Strawbridge.
