With only 16 athletes attending, half of the Lady Flyers consist of Freshman and Sophomores. We were very pleased with a third place finish out of nine Varsity teams. Sophomores Jewell Garibaldi set a PR with a high-jump of 4’4″ and a triple-jump of 30’6.5″, Sydney Aikins set a PR in pole vault of 7’6″, Paula Glaser long-jumped 12’11.5″, Mimi Beckemeier set a PR in the shot-put with a throw of 26’5″, Megan Halstead set a PR in the 100M hurdles at 17.91 sec and again in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 49.54, and Aly Forbes ran a splendid 5 min 35.02 sec 1600 meters. Our young and talented freshman sprinter and pole-vaulter Marina Casaragola set a PR in the 100 meters with a time of 28.94 sec. The 4×800 relay team set a season PR of 10 min, 28.92 sec, the 4×200 team ran a season best of 1 min 56.85 seconds and the 4×100 squad lowered their time to 52.63 sec. Overall we were pleased with all of the young ladies who gave it their all and displayed excellent character throughout the entire day!
