Girl’s Track, Coach Mark Heichberger

The Springville Girl’s track team finished their dual meet season with an overall record of 5-3 and a league record of 2-2.  Payton Rowe and Chloe Chamberlin have been the leading scorers for the Griffins in the sprints and hurdles.  Rowe has had at least one first place finish in the hurdles during each league meet and Chamberlin is undefeated in the league in both the 100 and 200 meter dash events.

Hannah Goetz, Lizzy Miranda, and Sonya Krezmien have led the distance team in scoring.  Goetz has run impressive times in the 2000-meter steeplechase and the 400-meter hurdle events. Miranda has focused on the 800 meter run and is a key member to the 4 x 800 meter relay team. Krezmien was having a breakout season in the 1500 and 3000 meter events until she was forced to take some time off due to injury.  She will look to come back from the injury and have a strong finish to the season as she is looking forward to the ECIC Championships and the Section 6 Championship meet.

MacKenzie Engle has been the most consistent thrower for the Griffins this year. She has set personal best throws in both the shotput and the discus. Kaitlyn Blake and Sadie Olrogg have both scored points for the Griffins in the throwing events. Abby Steiner has the season best in the long jump and the 400-meter dash for the Springville girls.  Shelby Smith has the team’s best triple jump of the year.  Allison Lavanture has scored points in the jumping events and is also on the varsity 4 x 100 relay team.  Brooke Walker, Nyah Solly, and Alyssa Greaves all participate in the pole vault and have made big improvements during the year.  Allison Emmick has been the teams’ top high jumper and has made consistent improvements throughout the season.  Jacy Schelble has scored points in the distance events while Jamie Dickinson has contributed some points in the 400-meter dash.

The team will look to continue to improve during their home stretch of the season.
