BREMEN — The Lions hosted the Girls Track and Field Sectional 6 on Tuesday night at Nierste Track and welcomed 10 other schools from the surrounding region. Despite numerous stoppages and delays in the meet and ever-changing situations, the team stayed focused and competed well. By the end of a very long night, the Lions had qualified seven girls for the Kokomo Regional next Tuesday.
The meet was bookended with Regional worthy performances. Freshman Hannah Pezzuto kickstarted the meet finishing with the fastest qualifying time in the 100m hurdles (17.16) and then placed 2nd overall in the finals to book her place in the Regional.
The 4×400 relay had to wait until shortly after 10 p.m. to finally get their chance to run. The team of Gracelynn Stevens, Elle Libey, Hallie Klockow, and Zeta Nunemaker placed third overall with a time of 4:27.96 and qualified for the Regional.
The 4×100 relay of Kila Foster, Libey, Nunemaker, and Agnese Masini ran extremely well with a time of 52.64 and finished narrowly in fourth. However, when the Regional seeds were posted, the team celebrated as the relay was moved onto the Regional having a time fast enough to qualify.
