My 14 girl team won the Cascades Conference Championship meet and are now Cascades Conference champs! They had such a strong showing right from the beginning and didn't let up all evening! Ella Suliman won the 200, the 100 and the Long Jump, and anchored the winning 4x200 relay. Emily Fonzi won the 1600 and the 800 and anchored both the winning 4x800 relay and the 3rd place 4x400 relay. Sarah McEllis and Katie Colesa went 3-4 in the 800 and 4-5 in the 1600 and both ran on the winning 4x800 relay and the 4x400 relay. Maddy Campbell was 2nd in both the 100 hurdles and the 300 hurdles and ran on the 4th place 4x100 relay. Deven Cushard placed 6th in the 200, 3rd in the 300 hurdles, ran on the winning 4x200 relay and the 4x400 relay. Faith Patania and Trinity Ortbring rounded out the winning 4x200 relay and both also ran on the 4th place 4x100 relay. Hailey Zink ran on the winning 4x800 relay. Megan Niehaus was 5th in the shot put. Becca Mahlmeister ran on the 4th place 4x100 relay and the 4x400 relay.

Lady Warriors Track Team Members Qualify for States
At last Friday night's very cold and rainy Regional Track and Field competition at Hillsdale College, the Lady Warriors had 5 girls qualify for the State Finals. Ella Suliman set a new school record to win the long jump with a jump of 17'1". She also won the 200m. Emily Fonzi was 2nd in the 800m with a finish time of 2:21.75. The 4x800m relay team of Katie Colesa, Hailey Zink, Sarah McEllis, and Emily Fonzi placed 3rd (qualifying on time) with a season best of 10:14.
The Lady Warriors head to Napoleon on Tuesday afternoon for the Cascades Conference Championship meet. Go Lady Warriors!
