The girls’ winter track team has had a remarkable season. The team came in third place at the State Relay Championships, second place at the Skyland Conference championships, and tied for first at the Prep State championships. In addition, the team had three first-place finishes at the Varsity Classic Meet from Nikki Vanasse (IV) in the 1600 meters, Ryan Davi (III) in the 800 meters, and Caroline Dannenbaum (IV) in the pole vault.
Coach Chris Shilts commented on the team’s achievements, explaining “We come from a lot of different angles.” He also credited the success to good leadership from captains Anna Wood (VI) and Avery Schiffman (VI).
Coach Shilts said his goal for the team next year is to “keep getting better with commitment to the team.” In addition, Cathleen Parker (V) said, “Next year, we want to win more meets throughout the season, send more runners to selective invitationals, and win States.”
