Pioneer freshman Kiser wins regional title in 400 dash

Cass softball advances to sectional title game

Maddie Kiser’s impressive freshman track and field campaign will end with a chance to compete in the state finals in Bloomington.

Kiser of Pioneer was crowned regional champion Tuesday in the 400-meter dash in :57.66 at Fort Wayne Northrop’s Spuller Stadium.

The state finals are on June 6 at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex at Indiana University.

Tuesday was a culmination of a season of dedication and perseverance for the Panther frosh.

“Honestly, I had my doubts,” Kiser said. “I knew I had a chance, but this field is so competitive. I just went out and gave it my best because I knew nothing is guaranteed in a big meet like this. I’m overjoyed. I’ve been training for indoor track since October, so I’ve been working hard for eight months. I’m overwhelmed by the accomplishment. It took a lot of hard work.”

Lewis Cass set two school records in relay events on the night. The 4x100 relay team of Maci Maupin, Brooke Langley, Claire Crum and Kelsey Smith finished ninth in :50.88. The 4x400 relay of Karli DeHaven, Maupin, Smith and Crum placed seventh in 4:10.85.

Crum also placed seventh in the 400 in 1:01.53 and finishes her career owning four Cass track records. Smith placed eighth in the 200 in :26.89.

Pioneer’s Mati DeWitt was sixth in the discus (107-10). The Panthers 4x400 relay team placed 10th (4:16.43).
