On Saturday, May 30, three members of the Cedar Springs girls track team competed in the MHSAA Division 2 State Track Meet in Zeeland. Senior Kenzie Weiler brought home the school’s first Track and Field state championship by winning the 3200 meter run. With 500 meters to go, Kenzie took the lead and ran away from the rest of the field. She won with a new school record time of 10:41.98 and was just two seconds off from setting a new Division 2 state record in the 3200 meter run.
Kenzie received All State honors in track and field and, combined with her achievement in the classroom, she also earned Academic All State in Track and Field. In the fall, Kenzie will continue her education and running career at Michigan State University.
Sophomore Tara Tepin competed in two events, in her first trip to the state finals. Tara placed 19th in the 100 hurdles and ran a career best 47.21 in the 300 hurdles, for an 11th place finish. Junior Allyson Marvel also in her first trip to the state finals placed 18th in the pole vault with a vault of 8’ 11”.
