Batesville — A pair of school records fell Tuesday as the North Decatur track and field teams visited Batesville.

Meyer improved her school record in the shot put to 35 feet, seven inches. Megan Hoover broke the long-standing 3200-meter run record, held by Hannah Favors, by one second with a 12:27.56. Meyer added a win in the discus with 101-01, and Megan added a second in the 1600 with a time of 5:42.79.
