County girls track and field teams ready to run

(Continued)

Expecting to lead the Warriors this season is senior hurdler Olivia Stevens and junior hurdler Chelsea Gould.

McKenzie is also counting on sophomores Nick Kiefer, Lydia Russell, and Cami Collins.

“(They) are versatile athletes who will have an impact in a variety of events,” McKenzie said.

Stevens, Kiefer, Collins, Gould, and sophomore distance runner Melanie Foreman will make the core of Danville’s points.

“(They) should provide a solid foundation for the team and lead in scoring points,” McKenzie said.

Expectations for the top meets are unknown at this time as the Warriors’ goal is simple.

“We’re striving to perform our best in the county, conference, and sectional,” McKenzie said. “But it’s very difficult to project our placing in these meets at this time.”

Danville only has two seniors in Stevens and Heather Siller this season. McKenzie likes what they bring, but also expects a lot from the remainder of the team.

“They will definitely be valuable, but we’ll also be looking for our younger girls to perform well in varsity competition,” he said.

Cascade

With some new faces and experienced veterans, the Cadets should return to the track and find some individual successes, but the team aspect may be a bit more complicated.

“Our goals are to improve individually and that should help to bring us success in the county, conference, and sectionals,” Cascade coach Rosie Fakes said. “We’re short on numbers this year so we’ll struggle to compete with full teams.”

Nicky Stewart — last year’s county and sectional champion in the 100 — returns for Cascade. Stewart’s experience will be invaluable for the Cadets, along with teammate Miranda Chastain.

Fakes points to Regina Solik and Savanah Leopard as the ones to take charge in the field events.

“All of these girls bring a great work ethic to the program,” she said. “They lead by example as well as talking the younger competitors through the tougher practices. I couldn’t ask for better leaders.”
