Girls Varsity Track · Girls Compete at Districts

The girls track and field team enjoyed several standout performances last week at their District competition, led in the field events by sophomore Gina Adams in the High Jump, who’s top four finish earned her a spot to next week’s Regional competition.  In the throws, Julia Houser enjoyed another PR as she qualified to the District finals while in the Pole Vault, sophomore Haley Brennan earned a fifth place finish while junior Eliza Steinman will repeat her 2017 trip to Regionals in the Pole Vault by finishing in the top four once again.

In the distance events, sophomore Olivia Irwin ran back-to-back PR’s en route to taking a top seven spot in the District in the 1600 while fellow sophomore Teagan Walsh earned a Regional qualifying spot in the 3200 with another PR and a 3rd place finish.

In the sprints, sophomore Samantha Walsh earned a Regional spot in both the 100 and the 200, and in doing so, not only won Districts in the 200, but also set a new school record in the event as well.

Special congratulations to senior captain’s Ellie Templeton and Maya Khawam, who both competed in their final events for the team after four fantastic season of leadership both on and off the track.

Good luck to all the girls competing at this week’s Regional competition at Amherst on Wednesday and Friday!
