Records fell by the wayside like dominos Friday and Saturday at the Region III Track and Field championships at Ed Hollier Field in Kenai.
With cool, overcast conditions presenting runners a perfect opportunity to run sizzling times Saturday, the crowd was treated to one hot time after another. Overall, 11 new Region III records were established, along with nine current state bests for 2015.
The most revisions to the record book came in the middle to long distance races, as all six races from 800 meters and up, on both the boys and girls sides, saw previous bests erased.
