The Guerin Catholic girls’ track team gets a shout out from Indiana Runner for the upcoming indoor state meet being held at IU this coming weekend!
HSR FINALS – SMALL SCHOOL GIRLS TEAM COMPETITION
This looks to be an open team race, with four teams in position to compete for the title.
West Lafayette – West Lafayette boasts four very strong relays and those points add up quickly in this HSR format. They also have strong field events: shot putter Ashley Weatherly (#2 seed), long jumper Katy Penquite (#6 seed) and pole vaulter Maria Siciliano (#1 seed). They could also score points in the 60 meter dash (Lauren Thomas).
Brebeuf Jesuit – Brebeuf has an elite sprint squad, led by Semira Killebrew (#1 seed 60 meter dash) and Nakita Turner (#1 seed 60 meter hurdles, #6 seed 60 meter dash). Jordan Smith could also score points in the 60 meter dash. They should compete to score points in all four relays.
Guerin Catholic – This is a distance-heavy squad, led by Megan Slamkowski (#2 seed in 3200 meter run). They could challenge to win the 4×800 and/or the DMR, and should place well in the sprint relays. Vaulter Reagan Ney could add some field events points.
Thea Bowman Academy – This team has outstanding sprinters. They enter as the #1 seed in the 4×200 meter relay and the #2 seed in the 4×400 meter relay. They have had three girls break 8 seconds already in the 60 meter dash: Tychina Scott (#2 seed), Melody Jones (#3 seed) and Emijah Davis (#4 seed). Jaylenn Williams could score well in the 60 meter hurdles.
