The Lady Marauders made a long haul to Terre Haute North High School on Saturday to face a 13 team field.
The shorthanded Marauders made a great showing against a tough field that featured 13 schools both large and small, but ultimately came in as runner-up to the Terre Haute South Braves and their superior depth in the field events.
“Great team effort all around. There were some definite surprises today and most of them were positive. You never know from practice how a girl will respond when the gun goes off, but I can definitely say that I felt everyone welcomed the pressure and responded accordingly. We scored in 15 of 16 events and in most events we scored 2 athletes. I’d call it a pretty good day.” said Coach Coy.
“Really special day for Kamryn Eason and Arianna Mack. Both won 2 individual events and Kamryn won two of the more mentally taxing events (400 and 800) about 25 minutes apart setting lifetime PRs in both. Ari is starting to come back into form after a sustained ankle issue. Anytime you have those two running that well, you have to get a little excited.” he added.
Gracesyn Thomas also won the long jump for the only other Marauder victory on the day, but there was much to be optimistic about with several others making huge strides in their respective events.
