Middle school girls track finishes undefeated season

The Middle School girls track team finished undefeated.

The girls middle school track team finished the regular season with an undefeated record.  This was the first year joining a new middle school conference and the girls excelled at the challenge. At the conclusion of the season, the 7th and 8th grade split their conference meets by grade level. The 7th grade team finished second, but only by a small margin.  The 8th grade team won their conference meet, which was also held at Red Hawk Stadium. This year the middle school team had a record number of girls out (87), which was a great thing for our program.

At the conclusion of the regular season, 15 girls represented Cedar Springs at the MegaStar meet, hosted at Shephard HS. In order to run in this event, they had to be part of the top 8 relays or top 16 individuals in their event in the state. The girls that attended the meet put down some incredible times and distances to finish 2nd overall as a team, to Traverse City West, a D1 team.

Seven school records were also broken this year. Abby Buttermore (70m), Kaelyn Colclasure (200m), Arianna Rau (400m), Sophia Dault (long jump & 55 hurdles), Arianna Rau (shot put) and the 400 relay team of Buttermore, Rau, Dault and Olivia Sherman.

Congratulations to these great young ladies and all the hard work they put in throughout the season. Each and everyone one of them dedicated themselves to working hard and as a result, saw their times/distances drop throughout the season.  Also a huge thank you to all our parents who supported the kids and parents throughout the season.  We definitely had the biggest crowd no matter where we were running!
