Orioles take second at HCC

Avon's and Brownsburg's girls' track teams headed north this week to take on the tough competition in the Hoosier Crossroads Conference at Lafayette Jeff. Avon (106) came in second to a strong Hamilton Southeastern team that tallied 132.5 points. Meanwhile, Brownsburg (35), who has been dealing with some injuries, finished ninth.

“I was really proud of the girls,” Avon coach Stephanie Chenoweth said. “They were awesome.”

Taylor Nicholson won the 1600 for the Orioles, while the 4x800 team of Malyka Abramson, Lauren Heeger, Kelsie Mothersead, and Nicholson set a new Avon record and won the event. In addition, Lauren Briskey broke the school record while winning the 100 hurdles.

“There were a lot of personal records (at the meet),” Chenoweth said. “There were overall a lot of good performances and everybody stepped up.”

Kate Bernickie took second in the 3200 and the 4x100 team of Aaliyah Beverly, Monique Ellis, Lanique Ellis, and Stacie Shelton took third.

Coming off the momentum, the Orioles now set their eyes on sectionals.

“Right now, we're just kind of fine tuning some things with field events and our relays,” Chenoweth said. “I think the key is keeping them healthy and fresh as possible. It was a tough meet. This week we're focusing on recovery and we'll get back at it toward the end of this week.”

The meet was a struggle for Brownsburg, however, as the squad has been trying to get healthy for the end of the season.

“We had some injuries prior to the meet,” Brownsburg coach Craig Beckner said. “A couple of girls who usually score big points for us weren't able to run and our main sprinter has some pretty bad shin splints and was not able to compete much.”

Though the injuries set the Bulldogs back at the HCC meet, Beckner expects them to be back to full strength come sectionals.
