Track and Field season comes to an end.

Though the school year is winding down, Track and Field is not. They attended the MPSSAA 4A Track and Field State Championships from May 21 through May 23.

In the girl’s 4×800 meter relay, junior Ani Bailin, junior Amelia Menefee, senior Morgan Kirsch, and junior Sophie Harjes placed 2nd with a time of 9:25.90. “The biggest factor was building my confidence. I told myself that I was capable of competing against the best girls in the state and pushing myself to my limits,” stated Bailin.

The team’s success didn’t stop there. In the 3200 meter, Bailin placed 3rd, running a time of 11:07.59. Freshman Nya Stoian followed in 4th place and Harjes came in 5th. In the girls 1600 meter, Bailin placed 7th, Harjes placed 8th, and Stoian placed 9th. Additionally, Menefee placed 9th in the girls’ 800 meter with a time of 2:20.60 and Harjes followed at 10th running a time of 2:20.97. Menefee said, “The biggest factor was the girls in front of me. I knew they would run really fast times, so I just pushed myself to not fall behind them, which got me a [personal record].” Senior Amanda Ridore placed 9th in the girls high jump and junior Jaylin Harried placed 4th in the girls triple jump.

For the boys team, senior Hunter Whitten ran the 1600 meter, placing 8th with a time of 4:27.64, and placed 7th in the boys 3200 meter with a time of 9:41.76.
