The Girls Track team opened the outdoor season with a nice win last night as easily came out on top of both Lebanon and Speedway. With first place finishes in nearly every event the girls have put up some impressive performances already.

Courtney Stull and Shanti Gregg both took wins in the 100m and 300m hurdle races. Senior Allison Hering started her season by cruising to a win in the 800m run. Distance runner Anna Boone had a terrific finish down the last straight edging out the competition by less than 1 second. Sophomore Emily Truax ran a great last lap to pick up 1st in the 2 mile. In field events Claire Hathaway continued to roll in the long jump as she placed 1st overall and Mackenzie Harless not only won, but grabbed a new personal best in the high jump by clearing 5' 2"!
