May is finally here. While no Tri-State or Washington County track and field records have been set this spring, the outdoor season is just starting to heat up. All of the major championship meets will be held over the next few weeks. Below are The Herald-Mail's records, which have been a work in progress the past few years. The only record changes since last year are in the boys and girls shot put. It was recently discovered that Bob Batdorf had a throw of 59 feet, 4 inches for Mercersburg Academy in 1957.
