Jacquelyn Hastings won the long jump and took third in the high jump.

Regan Laker finished second in the 100 hurdles and returned to finish third in the 300 hurdles.

Autumn Meece took second in both the 100 and 200.

Keely Springman was second in the shot put.

Cougars edge Lady Lions

The Lady Lion track team traveled to conference foe Shelbyville Wednesday and were edged by the Lady Golden Bears 69-63.

First place finishers for the Lady Lions included Autumn Meece in the 100 and 200; Mikayla Dougherty in the 800; Ellie Sammons in the discus; and Sarah Daubenspeck in the high jump.

Taking second place for the Lady Lions included Regan Laker in the 100 and 300 hurdles; Monica Dougherty in the 1600 and 3200; Kylee Elleman in the pole vault; Jacquelyn Hastings in the 200, high jump and long jump; and Kayla Shelton in the shot put and discus.

“This was our fifth meet in eight days, and it has really taken a physical toll on the girls. Normally, you would like to have one maybe two meets a week at most, so this is very out of the norm for a high school track team. This stretch has tested their physical and mental toughness and for the most part they responded well to the demanding challenge,” Coach Jim Helsley said.

“Senior Autumn Meece improved both her 100 meter dash and 200 meter dash times and anchored our 4x400 relay team. She is doing a bit more middle distance work than what she is use to, but it has really started to improve her endurance, which is really important during large meets when she will have to run multiple trials. Our field events continue to be one of the major strengths of the team. Ellie Sammons and Kayla Shelton both threw season bests in the shot put.”

The Lady Lions will next be in action at 5:30 p.m. today at the Greenfield Invitational.
