The Girls Track Team placed fourth out of nine teams against fellow Jeffco rivals tonight. The Pole Vault was the highlight event for the Gators with all three competing Gators scoring points. Rachel Cody '18 vaulted to a personal record (PR) 7-0ft for a tie for second place. Sami Pence '18 also vaulted 7-0ft but ended up in fourth place due to prior missed attempts. Jackie Paik '16 finished in fifth with a 6-0 ft performance.
A second event where more than one Gator scored points was the 1600M run where Anna Nelson '17 and Emma Abernethy '17 scored 4th (5:52.72) and 5th (6:05.27), respectively. Nelson and Abernethy earlier joined Veronica Petrillo '18 and Anna Mounts '18 on the third place 4X800 relay.
Other relays earning points were the sixth place 4X100 team of Cody, Sadie Heffelman '17, Britta Swanson '18, and Fallin Smith '17. The 800 Medley Relay of Heffelman, Petrillo, Cody, and Cammy Schmelzer '18 placed third.
Paik also earned points with a seventh place finish in the 100 hurdles (PR 19.66) and eighth place finish in the 300 hurdles (58.26). Savannah Martin '18 found success again in her new found event placing 4th in the Shot Put with a PR 28-7ft throw. Smith placed fifth in the 400 meters with a 1:11.9. Lina Vogler '18 rounded out the SLHS scoring total with a 5th place Triple Jump (PR 29-8.25) effort and an eighth place tie in High Jump (PR 4-02).
It was cold and windy, but several Gators recorded PRs this meet. In addition to the PRs noted above, the following achieved personal best efforts: Jennifer Holguin Guevara '19 (Shot 21-10 and Disc 56-09), Hannah Laughlin '19 (1600M 6:44.19), Mounts (800M 2:50.83), Pence (100M 14.85), Swanson (100H 20.21), Jamie Torbet '19 (Shot 23-05), and Vogler (100H 20.55).
The Gators will take a nice rest over Spring Break and will be back in action on March 30th for more League competition.

The Girl's Track Team started off their season at the Ralston Valley Meet this past Friday. The meet got off to a strong start with two Gators placing in the first race of the night. Anna Nelson '17 and Veronica Petrillo '18 placed six (2:37.93) and seventh (2:39.29) in that race respectively. Petrillo's time was a personal record (PR) which is a great feat for the first meet of the season.
Jackie Paik '16 also provided another proud Gator moment when she tied for second in the high jump with an effort of 4-06. This was her first time competing in this event. Savannah Martin '18 placed in her first ever shot put competition, throwing 28-03.5 for seventh place.
Emma Abernethy '17 and Nelson showed some Gator strength running the 3200M together to finish easily in 2nd (13:12.85) and 3rd (13:13.03). Abernethy also added a second place finish in the 1600M (5:48.03). Nelson finished 6th in that race (5:58.83).
As it was the first meet of the season, PRs were hard to come by. But Sadie Heffelman '17 and Britta Swanson '18 joined Petrillo in achieving best times. Heffelman PRed in both the 100 (13.99) and 200 (29.48) while Swanson PRed in the 100 (14.70).
Overall the Gators placed 6th out of 14 teams with 38.33 points.
The Gators take to the track again this Wednesday for some early season Jeffco League action against Arvada, Arvada West, Bear Creek, D'Evelyn, Evergreen, Golden and Ralston Valley.
