With 16 teams in the field of competition (Festus brought a “B” team) our young Varsity Lady Flyers competed with valor as they amassed 103 points with many girls maxing out in four events in order to help fill out as many events as possible. Our 4×800 team surprised the field with a 1st place finish, the young 4×200 team placed 4th with the 4×400 squad coming in 5th place. Freshman Marina C. shocked the Varsity pole-vaulters while clearing 8’6″ with ease to take 2nd place, while senior leader and all-around athlete Anna Musich cleared 7’6″ to place 5th in the vault, as well as running in part of a relay team, long-jumping and taking 2nd in the triple jump with a bound of 32’9.5″. Another freshman phenom, Katelin Hertel, competed as part of a relay team and also scored big in the triple jump competition with a leap of 32’5.75″! Sophomore Jewell G competed in High Jump and then scored big in the long jump with a 4th place jump of 14’11”. Another sophomore who was spread thin to compete in 4 events was Paula G-laser with a second place finish in both the 100 m (13.21sec) and the 400 m dash with a time of 63.04 seconds. In hurdles soph Megan Halstead scored in both the 300- and 100 meter hurdles; yet, it was senior Sammy Stoecklein who ran like a beast finishing 3rd in the High hurdles with a personal record time of 17.4 seconds and ran 1/100th of a second behind Megan in the 300’s with a time of 51.46 to bring in 6th place. Sophomore Aly Forbes ran a 5:35.77 1600 meter with sore legs to place 3rd while Lilly Jiang kicked it in with a strong 6:03.01 finish to place 8th. Senior Abi Juedemann ran a 2:31.73 800 m to place 3rd while another freshman phenom “Kat” Adams zoomed to a 7th place finish with a time of 2:38.49. Junior Krissa “Krispy Creme” Johnson put together a couple of nice runs with a 7th place finish in the 100m of 13.49 seconds and ran a personal best in the 200 with a time of 29.51 as she and Paula were slowed down by another athlete who wiped out in-between them causing them to slow down to avoid collisions. Sophomore Katie Kult shattered her old PR in the 3200 M run by over 30 seconds with a time of 12:55.19 seconds. Overall, it was another excellent meet with all of the athletes and coaches displaying excellent character and enjoying competing against and talking with athletes from other schools.
