Girls track preview: Top spot up for grabs after graduation losses

Top spot up for grabs after graduation losses

(Continued)

Sophomore Ellie Rush and junior Madi Shepherd lead the sprinters. That pair will likely be joined by freshman Brooklyn Campbell and sophomore Liz Dewitt on the 4x100 relay squad.

Mullins, Seaman, Nixon and Knepley made up the sectional runner-up 4x400 relay team last year, but junior Amelia Moe and freshman Shelby Hulka have shown tough competition early in the spring.

Freshman Jama Claxton and senior Caroline Conrad will be competing with Mullins, Seaman Nixon and Knepley for spots on the 4x800 relay team.

Rush finished third in both the 100 and 300 hurdles in sectional competition a year ago. Junior Bretta Tate will also compete in both hurdles events for the Panthers. Shepherd will try her hand at the 100 hurdles, while Hulka and junior Miranda Pressgrove will compete for spots in the 300.

Sophomore Taylor Nunan and junior Riley Beall are the top pole vaulters, while Shepherd and Rush round out a full repertoire as the top long jumpers. Campbell, Dewitt and Brooklyn Campbell will also compete for time in the long jump.

Pressgrove, Tate, senior Cristina Hudepohl and freshman Haleigh Smith will handle high jumping duties. And, sophomores Kimberly Miller and Azhane Beard, as well as junior Courtney Rager will hold down the throwing events for the Panthers.

“I’m looking forward just to getting to know them,” coach Campbell said of her squad. “I’m looking forward to seeing my coaching staff working with bring [our athletes’] potential out. I look for our team as a whole to make a little more noise in the conference and sectional.”

Coach Nick Weicht will enter the season with a roster of 12 athletes, none of which are seniors.

But, with a returning regional qualifier in sophomore Cassidy Morgan and a promising newcomer in classmate Cami Hansen, hopes are high in the Titans’ camp.
