ANDERSON, Ind. —
Like many other small schools, Shenandoah suffered last season due to open roster spots. Coach Adam Leach said he hope a large freshman class will help combat that same problem this year.
“We are looking to compete,” Leach said. “We have people in every spot that can put up some good numbers.”
Freshmen Shelby Cross (sprinter) and Kate Graddy (distance) are expected to make an impact on boosting the scoring in their respective events.
Leach said he has a good mix of student-athletes with the leadership coming from seniors Geordyn Hudson (hurdles) and Allison Crowe (thrower), who transferred from Pike High School this school year.
Junior Madison Hensley joins Cross as the anchors for the sprinters while junior Roquel Welch looks to continue her growth in the throwing events.
“I think we have a good balanced team,” Leach said. “We have some good distance girls.
