Track athletes shine

Pioneer's Kiser, Cass' Smith claim track sectional titles


Gregorich said he’s not sure the Panthers have ever had a sectional championship relay team in girls track.

“When you come into a bigger sectional it’s pretty tough to have a relay team win. Individuals, we’ve had a few in the past, even just an individual sectional champion is pretty cool,” he said.

The Panther relay consists of a junior (Dorris), sophomore (Boucher) and two freshmen (Kiser and Storey).

“They had a plan. They wanted to be a sectional champion 4x4 team,” Gregorich said. “It means a lot to them and it means a lot to me as a coach that they worked that hard and got that taken care of it.”

Smith took the 200 with a time of 26.12 seconds, which was 0.15 of a second faster than runner-up Tearsten Munson of Northwestern.

Smith was shooting for the 200 title and scratched in the 100 for it.

“It’s my favorite one and it’s the one I’ve really been working hard at,” she said. “It was a pretty good race. There’s some good competition and we’re all really close. We’ve been racing all year pretty close so it’s pretty nice.”

Cass senior Claire Crum set a school record in the 400 with a time of 1:00.95 and placed third to advance. The top four finishers in each event advanced to next week’s Fort Wayne Northrop Regional.

All three of the Kings’ relay teams advanced. The 4x400 team placed second and the 4x100 and 4x800 teams both finished third.

Logansport’s 4x100 relay team placed fourth to advance. The Berries also had an individual advance, as junior Jennifer Crafford placed third in the 1,600 run in 5:39.91.

Logan coach Randy Kuhn thought Crafford would have also been a top contender in the 3,200 but battled a hip muscle injury and finished sixth.
