Track Notes, 5/20/13

Congratulations to our 2013 State Meet qualifiers for their outstanding performances this past weekend.  Our team tied for fifth place overall in the Class 2A meet!

All State Performances:
  • Gabi Jacobs placed 2nd in the shot put and 3rd in the discus!
  • Chante Stonewall placed 4th in the 300 hurdles with a new school and Pantagraph area record 43.83!!!  She also placed 7th in the 100 Hurdles, the only non-senior to make the finals in that event!
  • Ashley LaFayette placed 5th in the 3200!
  • Sydney Billingsley placed 8th in the 1600! 
Erika Simple set another school record in the 400 with a 58.55 time posted in Friday's preliminaries.  She was also our only triple qualifier, also competing in the 100 and 200 preliminaries.

Shannan Supan cemented her status as one of the state's best Freshmen distance runners by placing 14th overall in the Class 2A 3200 Finals.

The Pioneers finish the year with 4 school record holders on our roster and our highest finish ever in the IHSA Class 2A Meet!

Outstanding job representing University High School and our Girl's Track Team.  We are certainly proud of each of you!


*    Our end of the year banquet is tomorrow evening at 5:30p in the school lounge.

*    Please plan to bring your clean uniform to the banquet tomorrow evening.  If you are unable to attend the banquet, you may also turn in your uniform, in person, to Coach Neisler at school.  All uniforms must be turned in by Thursday or you will be billed for the replacement cost by the school.  These uniforms are very expensive and we need to have each accounted for before school ends.

Hope to see everyone tomorrow night!
