The Greensburg Girls Track & Field Team traveled to New Castle for a tri-meet against the Trojans and Connersville. The Lady Pirates (60) beat New Castle (43) and placed 2nd overall, just 4 points shy of the Lady Spartan winners (64).
The meet began with Junior Thrower, Lily Grimes, taking 1st in both Shot Put and Discus. Her freshman teammate, Anna West continued to make her mark placing 2nd in Shot and 3rd in discus. The distance crew also dominated by winning and nearly sweeping all their events. The girls 4 x 800 relay team of Cameron Jones, Cathy Newhart, Julia Ankney, and Brenner Hanna won their race by almost a whole minute. Later on during the meet, Brenner Hanna went on to win both the 1600 and the 3200 while Cameron Jones continued the streak and won the 800 with freshman, Emma Wilmer, not far behind to take 2nd. Jones also captured 3rd in 1600 and Cathy Newhart placed 2nd in 3200 which rounded up the near sweep. On the short track, big sprinting points came from Elizabeth Pavy in the 100 and 200 and Mary West in 100 hurdles and 100.
Despite the cool windy temps, many of the ladies were able to have PR performances. In the metric 2 mile Ms. Hanna ran a new PR and was just 3 seconds shy of breaking the school record. In addition to Ms. Hanna, Elizabeth Pavy, Koregan Kidd, Emma Wilmer, Emily Rosales, Erika Gauck, and Jordyn Luken all improved from their previous best times on the track.
The Lady Pirates will travel to Brown County on Saturday for the Talon Relays.
