Track stars prepare for numbers game



Coach: Nick Clarkson

Letterwinners lost: Adrienne Jones, Prisca Sakeuh, Morgan Tarlton

Letterwinners returning: Sierra Ratzlaff, Grace Rusche, Paige Hendershot, Mandi Flora, Micah Bryan, Plenseh-Tay Sakeuh, Mackenzie Boles, Bri Miller, Lilly Ratzlaff, Brandi Miller

Newcomers: Sammi Voegele, Austin Jones

Coach’s outlook: “We’ve beefed up our coaching staff, with the addition of two experienced distance coaches, Krista Loller and Brian Gill. They have helped the distance training tremendously. Most of the girls started training right after Halloween this year and are anxiously awaiting the regular season to begin competing. Their attitudes and commitment have been excellent this year. We are all looking forward to the season.”


Coach: Brooke Justus

Letterwinners lost: Erin Peacock, Elayna Fick, Shannon Wallace, Bre Lewis

Letterwinners returning: Bethani Herniak, Sundy Mack, Jasmine Nelson, Jessica Patton, Haniah Stansberry, Halie Johnson, Jackie Sallee, Tory Galloway

Newcomers: Paige Bramel, Lavon Haney, Amanda Armstrong

Coach’s outlook: “We have some freshmen that are strong. Our inexperience these first few meets might be a hindrance, but I think once they get comfortable, the freshmen group, they are going to definitely provide some points for us. I’ve only got 15 girls, but if I can keep them healthy, we are not necessarily going to be able to compete at meets per say, but we are going to be able to compete in events. This year I have a stronger sprinter, 400 group, whereas last year I had more of the mid-distance distance streangths.”

Pendleton Heights

Coach: Melissa Hagerman

Letterwinners lost: Emma Manchess, Anna Dudley, Kelsee Werling, Valerie Taylor

Letterwinners returning: Kiawna Cottrell, Alex Buck, Micalah Booher, Monica Dudley, Elane Stephenson, Tristan VanNatta, Morgan Jacobs, Amanda Jamison, Shaelee Roy, Lexie Kisinger, Megan Blackwell, Maddi Hinton, Chelsea Blackwell

Newcomers: Alli McCarty, Emma Hall, Faith Baer

Coach’s outlook: “We have some strong events with Kiawna (Cottrell) and Alex (Buck), but we also have some weaker events, too. I think individually we are going to do really well, as a team it is kind of up in the air right now. We lost some seniors that helped us out in the sprints (last year). There are so many new girls, not just freshmen, but we have had sophomores and juniors come out. There are a lot of unknowns still. We are trying to find the right spot for the girls.”
