It was a record day for the Girls track and field team on many levels. The 4x100 Meter Relay of Sarah Kelly, Maddie Vansell, Olivia Lowe, and Allie Kennamore beat their own school record with a new time of 50.42. Kylee Vandenberg displayed a strong effort in both the discus and shot put with marks near her best despite still healing off a recent arm injury. She continued this effort on the track and ran a personal best in the 800 Meter of 2:19.17 and capped her day off as the third leg of the 4x400 Meter Relay team. On the field, Sophomores Abby Conklin and Chloe Widdowson gave it their best in the jumps. Abby Conklin jumped 16’4” in the Long Jump and Chloe Widdowson achieved 32’1.5” in the Triple Jump.
