2021 Girls Track & Field Season Review
The girls track and field team worked through a variety of issues, from cancellations to COVID restrictions to injuries, and concluded the season with good results. Due to last season’s cancellation, a majority of the team had only one year or less of varsity track experience.
Junior Lauren Turk was named the most valuable distance athlete. Junior Annemarie Bryans earned the team’s most valuable athlete for the field events and freshman Sophia Ramsay was named the team’s most valuable sprinter. Turk also earned the team’s mental attitude award. Ramsay ran the fifth-fastest 100 meters in program history, which was good for fourth place in the sectional. Junior Cate Lehner cracked the program’s top five with the fifth-best long jump and junior Lily Vaught cleared the program’s fifth-best all-time pole vault. Alyssa O’Connor was Marion County Freshman champion in the high jump.
Ramsey qualified for the regional in the 100 meters, along with senior Sarah Strodtbeck. They were joined at the regional by sophomore Josie Origer (200 meters), sophomore Ansley Bishop (discus) and Lauren Turk (800 meters). All three relays – 4x100 meters, 4x400 meters and 4x800 meters – also qualified for the regional.
