Bossier City’s Will Dart, a senior at Loyola College Prep and an LSU signee, won three events in the Allstate Sugar Bowl/LHSAA Indoor Track & Field State Meet on Saturday at LSU’s Carl Maddox Fieldhouse.

Dart took the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter Division II boys events. He is the first athlete to accomplish that feat in the Division II indoor state meet.

Dart set a Division II record in the 3,200 with a time of 9:39.26. The previous record was 9:44.38 by Zach Capello of Ascension Catholic in 2014.

He finished a little more than 20 seconds ahead of second-place John Walker McDonald of Dunham.

Dart ran a 2:01.24 in the 800. DJ Morton of University Lab was second in 2:03.79.

His 1,600 time was 4:25.59, just .21 off the Division II record. Dart finished 11 seconds ahead of runner-up James Christian of Episcopal.

Parkway’s Adam Machowski finished third in the Division I boys high jump with a leap of 6 feet, 3 inches. Terrance Armstrong of team champion Ruston won with a 6-4. Damien Trahan of Barbe also cleared 6-4 but Armstrong won on fewer misses.

Parkway’s Joslyn Crosby finished fifth in the Division I girls 1,600 in 5:28.68. Sophie Martin of St. Joseph’s won in 5:14.25.

Airline’s Tommy Williams finished sixth in the Division I boys 60 hurdles in 8:81. Sean Burrell of Zachary won in 8.06.

Airline’s Brianna Taylor barely missed qualifying for the Division I girls 60 finals. Needing a top-eight finish, she was ninth in the prelims in 8.01. That was just .02 behind the eighth-place qualifier.

Parkway’s Jazz Rasouliyan was ninth in the Division I girls 3,200.

Benton’s Jacob Marcinkus finished 11th in the Division I boys 3,200. Mclane Smith was 12th in the 1,600.
