SCR-I Girls Finish Fifth At Conference Track Meet
The Scotland County girls track team knew it competed in one of the toughest leagues in the state and it found out just how tough at the Tri-Rivers Conference meet held in Brookfield, May 11. SCR-I finished fifth among the eight league schools.
“We continue to improve,” said Coach Josh Smith. “We are running our fastest times of the year. In almost every single event tonight we ran faster than we have all season. The only problem being that our opponents all ran fast as well.”
Ali Fromm picked up second place in the 100-meter low hurdles in one of her best performances of the year. The sophomore has been battling an ankle injury that lingered from the basketball season finale. She finished just ahead of teammate and fellow sophomore Jamie Fuller who took third. The girls flip-flopped in the 300-meter hurdles where Fuller was second and Fromm third.
Leslie Duley finished third in both the 1,600-meter and 3,200-meter runs. Kelly Cochenour was sixth in the 3,200 meter run.
Cochenour was fourth in the 800-meter run. Jessie Cotton picked up fourth place points in the triple jump while two relay squads also took fourth place. The 4x100 team consisted of Sara Eggleston, Katie Schneider, Ciera Turner and Cotton. Eggleston, Fuller, Fromm and Cotton teamed up for the 4x200-meter race.
The 4x800-meter relay team of Turner, Cochenour, Angie Bulen and Whitney Neighbors finished fifth while the 4x400-meter team of Turner, Cochenour, Schneider and Duley was sixth.
Other points came from Bulen who was sixth in the discus, Becky Miller who was eighth in the shot put, and Turner, who was eighth in the 400-meter dash.
