County girls track and field teams ready to run

(Continued)

“I feel like we should definitely compete for a conference title,” he said. “We’ll see how county rolls and have a good amount of girls advance onto the regionals and hopefully onto state.”

Those key returners include seniors Keanna Lazaro, Jordan Lightner, Sydney McCalley, Megan Unger, and Gabby Edwards.

Powers also listed juniors Megan Cole and Carrie Chappell and sophomores Paige Lowe, Kayla Stamm, Madison Sprecher, and Karen Jones as key returners.

“I just keep thinking of our team and everyone I think of is someone who is coming back and it’s just really exciting to have so many returners,” Powers said.

Freshmen Michelle Davis and Kate Henley and junior foreign exchange student Lisa Anderer are all expected to contribute for the Bruins as well.

As Powers has tried to plan out the events, he said he’s had trouble getting the roster figured out.

“You look around and I’m trying to write in who is participating in our meets this week and I mean there are certain kids who it’s hard to find something to get them in and they’re solid runners,” Powers said. “It’s a good problem to have. It’s a problem because I don’t like excluding someone who’s coming out and working hard. At the same time, you have got to field your best team.”

Powers is in his second year as the high school coach and learned some unexpected things in his first season.

“I learned how long of a season track is,” Powers said laughing. “Our official practices started in February and went through June last year. You really learn how important it is to rest some kids.”

Danville

The 2013 season for the Danville girls’ track and field team will be all about continued improvement.

“We anticipate our girls developing into athletes who will be very competitive by the end of our season,” Danville coach Pat McKenzie said.
