Lady Marauders win 3-team meet

“This was our first meet in almost two weeks due to weather, so I really felt like the girls were trying to find their way back to competing. Mt. Vernon and Pendleton are the two best teams in our conference, so this was going to be great competition regardless of our infrequent practices due to weather,” Coach Jim Helsley noted. “This is the first of six meets in two weeks, so I’m really interested in seeing how our times, distances, and heights improve from now until the end of that stretch.”

Kayla Shelton won the discus event for the Lady Lions and Ellie Sammons was second in the shot put.

Regan Laker finished second in the hurdles.

Jacquelyn Hastings was second in both the long jump and the high jump.
