The girls track and field team finished 3rd at the Goshen Relays on Saturday afternoon. The meet had a unique format unlike most meets run in track and field. On the track all the events were relays and in the field the performances of all the participants in a school are added together for a total time.
The Eagles had two relays that won. The Discus Relay, made up of Emily Murton, Sanela Begic, and Alecia Parker won with a combined distance of 206’4”.
Also winning was the Sprint Medley Relay (100-100-200-400) made up of Ryanna Latender, Devyn Moore, Janiya Coleman, and Joselyn Mwenifumbo. The relay won in a time 1:53.8.
The Eagles also finished as the runner up in several events. The Shot Put Relay of Parker, Murton, and Begic, the 4×100 of Coleman, Latender, Moore, and Mwenifumbo, Long Jump Relay of Coleman, Latender, and Brianna Woods, and 4×200 of Moore, Latender, Coleman, and Mwenifumbo all finished in 2nd place.
In the pole vault, the lone Eagle vaulter Claire Butler was able to finish the relay tied for 5th with a new personal best of 8’6”.
The Eagles will compete again on Tuesday evening at the Northern Indiana Conference Championship meet hosted at Elkhart Central High School. Competition begins at 5:15 PM
