Vs. Athol at Smith

The Lady Gaels continue to improve! Despite a loss to Athol, Friday night's meet saw every member of the team run a personal best time in at least one event. Laura J and Marissa started things off on a positive note, as Laura avenged last week's loss in the mile by leading the two mile from start to finish, and Marissa ran a strong race, hanging onto Laura almost the entire way to finish second overall. Jessica improved her time in the hurdles by almost a second, picked up a third place finish in the 300, and once again jumped over 11 feet in the long jump. Evelyn, Vickie, and Jill all ran well in the mile (Jill continues to improve by leaps and bounds!) and Evelyn came back late in the meet to post a solid win in the 1000 meters in her first-ever attempt at the distance. Britany competed for the first time, running the 55 meter dash (where she finished third) and the 300, and Katie ran her first 300 ever as well. Great job ladies! (special thanks to Mr. Cassebeer for the pictures!)
