The Indians are state bound.
After the St. Vincent track team had a great district meet, that success continued. St. Vincent will send three individuals and four relay teams onto state after competing at a Class 1 Sectional on Saturday at New Haven. To qualify for state an individual or team must finish in the top four in a particular event.
“I was happy with the way the kids did,” St. Vincent track coach Angie Hudson said. “Getting to state is something that should be appreciated.”
Hudson was especially proud of Reese Zoellner, who finished third in the pole vault with a height of 7-6.50.
“We knew going in that she was going to have to jump close to her PR,” Hudson said. “Her best is eight feet. She wasn’t able to hit that but she still jumped really well.”
Claire Otte finished fourth in the Javelin with a distance of (90-6.0) and Payton Unterreiner finished fourth in the 400 meter run with a distance of 1:05.46. Unterreiner is a freshman and Hudson was impressed with her day running against older athletes.
“I was a little nervous about her going in because she is so young as a runner,” Husdon said. “Payton has a good stride and it looks effortless when she runs.”
