Stamford’s Skylar Shafer Breaks Another Track Record

By Rosie Cunningham

STAMFORD - Recently Skylar Shafer sprinted her way to a 200 meter Stamford Central School (SCS) record at the Ed Harbaugh Invitational at Delaware Academy and last week she clinched the 100 meter record as well.

Shafer defeated the 100 meter dash record formerly secured by Brooke Davis 18 years ago with a time of 13 seconds flat.

At the Harbaugh, the SCS junior varsity track member broke a 32-year-old record in the 200 meter category with a time of 27.2 seconds.

The record, according to 35 year track and field Coach Greg O’Connell, was held by Deb (Mollevik) Moorby, the boys varsity soccer coach at Charlotte Valley Central School.

Last week O’Connell said although she broke the 200 meter record, the 100 meter was “probably her best event.”
