On Friday, March 9 the girls track and field team competed in the Highland Park Relays Invitational at Highland Park High School. The Sequoits only brought a small team to compete because they had their conference meet the night before and wanted to allow some of their athletes time to rest. Antioch placed seventh overall in the meet.

“I wanted to die because it was so hard,” sophomore runner Natalie Svarc said. “I had to run a mile right after running in conference the night before.”

Even though back-to-back meets did play a role in fatiguing the Sequoit athletes, most of them still performed very well. The high jump team of Lyrik Stay, Morgan Bennett, and Madison Londono placed second overall, with a personal best jump of 4’ 10′. The ACHS hurdler team consisting of Lily Highley, Kayla Drennan, Jada Shaputis, and Londono placed fourth overall, and they all improved on their individual times.

“[We] did not fill all the relay events,” head coach Dan Oslage said. “The events we did compete in we did really well.”

The girls compete again on Friday, March 16 at University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
