SST trophy goes to Kenai

Kenai Central won the SST traveling trophy on Oct. 30 at Skyview High School.

 

SST is a curriculum followed by Kenai, Nikiski and Skyview high schools that incorporates weight training, and speed and agility drills. The schools get together to compete, and Oct. 30 was the second speed and explosion competition.

The events were the 40-yard dash, the shuttle run, vertical jump, standing broad jump and “Running Fight Gone Bad.” In that last event, students did 20 air squats, then ran down and back twice in the gym. The winners do that the most times in 10 minutes.

The students must have been doing their homework, because 16 records fell from last year.

The lifting competition will be held at Nikiski after spring break.

Here are the winners:

 

40-yard dash — 11-12 boys: Tim Duke, Sky, 4.53 seconds (new record); 11-12 girls — Heidi Perkins, Ken, 5.35; 9-10 boys — Josh Jackman, Ken, 4.77; 9-10 girls — Arianne Parish, Nik, 5.19 (new record).
