County girls track and field teams ready to run

(Continued)

In the middle distance, the Bulldogs will be paced by talented sophomore duo Tavon McCollum and Rocky Sulkoske as well as sophomore Lauren Markovich and freshman Aliyah Walker.

Junior Jolori Schafer will compete in hurdles, sprints, and pole vaulting.

In the distance events, senior Kyra Jo Gaerke, sophomores Julia Popenfoose and Cassidy Brown, and freshmen Brooke U’Ren, Allison Hering, and Mackenzie Vondersaar will compete for Brownsburg.

The team’s throwing crew includes senior Shay Roberson, sophomores Brittney Newson and Crystal Stowers, and senior McDonald’s All-American basketball player Stephanie Mavunga.

Freshmen Claire Hathaway (long jump, sprints) and Megan Berry (pole vault) will look to compete immediately.

In his first season as the girls’ head coach, Beckner said he is enjoying his time so far.

“In my first three weeks on the job I’ve been most impressed by the quality of the students we have on this team away from the track,” he said. “I’m extremely lucky to coach the team of girls that we have and am enjoying every minute of it.”

Tri-West

The Tri-West girls’ track and field team lost only three runners from last year’s first-ever Sagamore Conference champion team and are ready to get 2013 underway.

Expectations are high for coach Brian Powers and the rest of the Bruins.

“I’m excited to see what they can do,” Powers said. “With so much coming back from last year, it’s really just a solid team from top to bottom. We have pieces in place and we have the potential to go as far as they can. They have the potential to make it to Bloomington for the state meet and I don’t see why they can’t do that.”

Powers said he believes this team can compete at all of the big meets with solid experience.
