County girls track and field teams ready to run

(Continued)

Stewart holds the school’s 100 record, one broken by recent graduate Shelby Reynolds the previous season. It was a record that had stood at Cascade since the ‘80s.

Miranda Chastain will compete in the hurdles and distance runners Megan Frederick and Hadley Whicker  should also contribute this season.

With a smaller team, Cascade’s objectives are a bit altered compared to larger teams and Fakes is expecting their successes to come in different ways.

“We set goals as individuals and I set team goals,” Fakes said. “I talk to them about supporting their teammates and knowing how they finished at meets. We have great student athletes on the team. It’s not too difficult to create a team atmosphere. These young athletes are still developing and I look forward to watching them progress.”

Coming off of a season where the Orioles won a county title and their first sectional title in school history, along with a fourth-place finish in the Hoosier Crossroads Conference, aspirations for this season’s team are high.

“One of my team goals for this year is to be one of the most hard working and competitive teams in our county and conference,” Avon coach Stephanie Chenoweth said. “When I mean competitive, I mean competing with the best of the best. I think it’s time for our athletes to take the leap forward to being a force to reckon with. We had a dose of success last year winning county and sectionals, now we want more.”

The Orioles took two runners and a shot putter to the state finals last year and of the three, one returns. Sophomore Malyka Abramson comes back for the Orioles after a stellar cross country season where she won individual sectional, regional, and semistate titles.

Abramson, along with Courtney Kerr, Megan Price and Victoria Collins will anchor the distance events.
