GIRLS TRACK: Regional bound

Girls track athletes compete at Madison-Grant Sectional

FAIRMOUNT — The Logansport, Lewis Cass and Pioneer girls track teams made the long trek to Madison-Grant High School for action in the 2013 Madison-Grant sectional. Several area girls had successful nights and will be advancing to regional action.

Lewis Cass finished as a team in fourth place with 73 points followed by Logansport in eighth place with 42 and Pioneer in 10th with 16 points. Eastern won the event with 125 points behind the powerful Neeley twins.

The top four finishers in each individual event plus the top three relay teams advanced. The regional next week is at Fort Wayne Northrop.

The Kings 4x800 relay team will advance with a second place finish and a time of 10:02.08. The team consists of Jenna Yeakley, Claire Crum, Emily Robertson and Haley Johnson.

In the second event, the 100-meter dash, it was Cass’ Mariah Swartz taking third to advance with a time of 13.10. She was followed by the Berries’ Emily Pomasl in sixth and the Kings’ Kelsey Smith in seventh.

Ashley Spear of Logansport will move on as she claimed a fourth-place finish in the 200 meter dash at 27.68. Pomasl came in right behind her in fifth with a 28.28.

The 1600 meter run saw Jen Crafford of Logansport take a fourth-place finish at 5:45.20. Yeakley took a fifth and Robertson of Cass claimed a 10th place finish. Pioneer also had a pair finish in the top 10. Kathy Cover took an eighth while Gabby Harvey finished in sixth.

The Kings’ 4x100 relay team of Smith, Swartz, Maddie Eurit and Emma Bengtsson will move on with a fourth place finish and a time of 52 flat. Logansport’s relay team took sixth place.

IU recruit Brittany Neeley of Eastern tore up the track in the 400 meter dash finishing in under a minute. Crum claimed a third place finish with a time of 1:03.40 while Sarah Dorris of Pioneer came in just behind her in fifth.

Amber Hart of Logansport advances in the 300 meter hurdles with a 50.67. Brooke Langley of Cass came in sixth place.

Johnson of Cass qualified for the regional in the 800 meter run with a fourth place finish of 2:29.60. Megan Martin of Logansport took fifth while Yeakley of Cass came in seventh.

Lewis Cass and Pioneer both advanced in the 4x400 relay. The Cass team of Eurit, Johnson, Crum and Langley took third with a 4:18.60 while the Panthers’ Madison Boucher, Cover, Dorris and Kari Parmeter came across in fourth at 4:30.30.

“I told the girls before the race, let’s end on a good note and they came out and did a personal best. I’m happy for them and excited that they’re moving on to Fort Wayne,” said Pioneer coach David Gregorich.

Haley Lopez of Logansport just missed qualifying in the discus with a fifth place finish

The high jump will have Kiley Victor of Logansport and Eurit of Lewis Cass moving on. Victor took third by clearing 5-0, as did Eurit.

In the long jump Swartz of Lewis Cass moves on with a fourth place finish with a leap of 16-02. Spear of Logan took fifth while Bengtsson of Cass took sixth. Parmeter and Dorris of Pioneer claimed seventh and eighth respectively.

 Finally, in the pole vault Bengtsson of Lewis Cass had a third place finish by clearing 9-0. Robertson of Lewis Cass just missed advancing with a fifth place.

“We did very well. We’ve got several girls moving on next week,” Cass coach Grace Scott said. “Our relay teams ran well and they’re looking forward to next week.”

“I was a little surprised we had anybody advance out,” Logan coach Randy Kuhn said. “Jen’s (Crafford) been suffering from shin splints and we didn’t even know if she could run tonight. She had x-rays just today so we weren’t sure. We took her out of the two mile but left her in the mile and she did well. The Spear twins were sick and both missed school yesterday. All that coupled with the fact this is a tough sectional, I was happy with how we finished.”
