Saturday was the perfect day for records to be broken and Camden High athletes shattered three of them at the AAA state track and field qualifier contested at Lower Richland High School. At the end of the day, a pair of Bulldogs and two Lady Bulldogs had earned their spots in this weekend’s AAA state championships to be held at Harry Parone Stadium at Spring Valley High School beginning today. Senior Omar Mingo jumped to a new personal and school record in taking second place in the triple jump with a leap of 45-04.00, which earned him the status of a National Elite Athlete.
