The Lady Red Hawks split their double dual meet this week in OK Gold Conference action. They currently sit with a 3-1 record in conference competition. The weather was not conducive to posting fast times or distances but the team persevered through the adverse conditions. 

The Red Hawks were led by Sophomore distance runner Annalise Elliott. Annalise posted victories in the 800, 1600 and 3200 meter runs then teamed with Hannah Reed, Addyson Brown and Larissa McGrath to bring home 1st place in the 4 x 800 meter relay. Sophomore Hannah Shears won the long jump with a mark of 15’0”. Taylor Diemond remains undefeated in conference Pole Vault competitions winning the event. Senior sprinter Emily Neiderheide turned in strong performances in the 100 and 200 meter dashes scoring valuable points for the Red Hawks.  

On Saturday, April 23, the Red Hawks traveled to the Grand Rapids Catholic Central Cougar Invitational and were greeted by much warmer temperatures.  The team posted numerous season records (SR’s) and personal records (PR’s). Senior Emily Neiderheide blazed to a 4th place finish in a loaded 200 meter dash field running a new PR of 26.84. Emily then joined Hannah Shears, Janae Fulton and Aubrie French to grab 8th place points in the 4 x 100 meter relay running 54.54. In the Pole Vault, Taylor Diemond and Alexis O’ Dowd turned in strong performances with Taylor finishing 3rd (10’6) and Alexis grabbing 10th place (9’0). Junior Kurynn Oleneack jumped to a 10th place finish in the High Jump at 4’6”. The discus saw new PR’s established by Lauren Hambleton and Hannah Britten. Junior Hannah Seif grabbed 15th place in the Shot Put. In the distance events, Annalise Elliott finished 7th in the Mile and 8th in the 800 meter run (2:28.99) to score points for the Red Hawks. Junior Larissa McGrath dropped a huge PR in the 3200 meter run winning her section in 12:25.11 to finish 18th overall. Sophomores Hannah Reed (2:47) and Addyson Brown (2:50) set PR’s in the 800 meter run. The hurdle crew saw Lauren Sherburn set a new PR in the 100 meter hurdles finishing 11th in 19.16. Makenzie Zimmer turned in a 12th place finish in the 300 meter hurdles running a PR of 54.21.
