Coach Beth Pugh commented that, “the IESA did not have a state meet this year. Usually the athletes can qualify from the sectional meet to the state meet. Again the girls gave a great effort in every event they were in. The seventh grade came in second as runners up and the 8th grade were Sectional Track and Field Champions. This is a great accomplishment. I really wish we could have had a state meet this year. I believe the eighth grade would have had a great chance to be State Track and Field Champions. At the Sectional Meet, Lia Patterson set a new school record in the 400 dash again with a time of 1:00.66 and a new long jump school record with a jump of 16 feet five inches. Congratulations to all the athletes, both boys and girls.”

After the meet, Coach Pugh said, “It was a great weekend at the Bloomington Elite Track and Field Invitational Meet. The girls’ efforts and accomplishments were excellent. It was a really warm day, so we tried to keep the kids out of the sun as much as possible, but the heat was a factor in the kids’ performance. Lia Patteson set new school records in hurdles in 15.37 and first place and in the 100-meter dash in 12.87, where she finished in seventh place. Kate Foltz also set a new school record in pole vault with a third place jump of eight feet seven inches. The eighth grade 4×200 Adrina Simmons, Carly Ochs, Ava Boyer, Kenna Clodfelder placed third and had a PR 1:57.30. We had a lot of PRs during the meet including Rylie Vanausdoll in 5:49.92 during the 1600-meter run, and with a time of 2:38.30 in the 800-meter run; The 4×100 of Olivia Wallace, Taylor Gordon, Ayla Deleva, Belle Notaro with a time of 59.68; Olivia Wallace with her discus throw 72 of feet five inches; and Kate Foltz with a time of 2:39.46 in the 800-meter run. I really feel for these girls. They did not have a track and field season last year and this year they did not get to have a state. They have kept a positive attitude and I appreciate that.”
