Girls Varsity Track · Girls Track and Field Wins City Title


For the 7th year in a row the John Adams Girls Track & Field Team has been crowned the South Bend City Champions. The Eagles won with 160.5 points, almost 70 points more than the next closest team. The victory tonight was a total team effort in the sprints, distance, and in the field and points were scored by freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors alike.

Five girls claimed individual city titles in the meet.

Senior Niki Hakimzadeh won the first title of her career in the 1600, winning with an amazing kick and with a personal best time of 5:41.37. Hakimzadeh ran away from the field in the last 300 meters of the race for the victory.

Fellow Senior Joselyn Mwenifumbo took first place in both hurdle races, blowing the rest of the field away. In the 100 Hurdles Mwenifumbo won in 15.21 and 46.33 in the 300 Hurdles.

Members of the freshmen class had time to shine as well. Alecia Parker took the victory in the Shot Put. Parker threw 35’9.75”.

Jordan Mihut out-leaned the competition to take the title in the 400 Dash, winning in a time of 1:03.25.

While the individual champions brought points for the team, it took all of the runners who finished in the other positions to being the victory home. The Eagles also finished as runner ups in the 100, 200, 800, 4×100, 4×400, 4×800, High Jump, Long Jump, and Discus.

Great work Lady Eagles!

The Eagles compete again on Saturday at the Goshen Relays. Competition begins at 9:00 AM
