At the 18 team class A girls sectional at Central Catholic the lady knights placed 7th overall as a team. Alexis Wike was the headliner by winning the HJ to qualify for the state meet next Thursday at EIU. Alexis also narrowly missed qualifying for state in the 200 and 400 as she placed 3rd in both and ran the 400 with a blistering PR time of 1:02.99. Gracie Shaffer placed 4th in the 300IH with a PR time of 54.39s. Phoebe Reynolds placed 4th in the TJ with a PR jump of 9.27m or 30'5". Another notable includes Morgan Drozs ending her throwing career on a high note with a PR shot put throw of 7.05m. All in all a great day in less than ideal conditions for a long track meet. Good season lady knights track and field!
