At only the second meet in, the Slicer Girls Track team is looking strong, with improvements from last week.

Riley Tuerff had a great day, placing 1st overall in both the 60m dash and 60m hurdles, with a time of 7.87 and 9.08, respectively. Both times have earned Tuerff a trip to Indoor State, and she is currently ranked number 1 in the state for her hurdle time.

The girls’ 2×200 team of Kayla Jones, Andréa Franklin, Aydin Shreves, and Riley Tuerff placed 2nd overall with a time of 1:51.18, and the team is waiting to see if they qualify for Indoor State.

It was a good day for field events as well. Kayla Jones and Andréa Franklin placed 1st and 2nd overall in the long jump, with a distance of 16′ 5.25″ and 16′ 3″, respectively. In shot put, Keatyn Boren placed 1st overall, with a distance of 34′ 6.75″. We will learn more this week as far as which athletes have qualified for Indoor State, but all distances are looking strong.

Great effort by all! Go Slicers!
