The Girls Track and Field team hosted undefeated Perkiomen Valley on Wednesday afternoon and put together their best performance of the season. Highlighted by a school record, several District 1 qualifying performances, a clutch ending to the meet and personal best performances across all of the events, the Lady Warriors beat PV by a score of 76-74.
Trailing by a score of 74-71 heading into the final event, the 4x400 relay, the quartet of Juliana Keenan, Camille Dunham, Tina Prince and Shannon O'Brien ran their fastest time of the season, cruising past the Vikings team to secure the final 5 points in the meet and seal the team victory. As exciting as the last event was, their heroics would not have been possible without some outstanding performances from several members of the team. Cam Rodriguez broke the school record in the Pole Vault, clearing 12' 0" to win the event. Nickie Annelli was also outstanding in the event, clearing 11' 0" and finishing 2nd.

Kate Evans led the sprint crew with a PR and District qualifying performance in the 100M (12.52 sec) and also her best time of the year in the 200M (25.99 sec) finishing 1st and 2nd in those events. Evans also anchored the 4x1 (Meredith O'Donnell, Coco Dunham, Riley Hydock) to a win. Juliana Keenan put together a fantastic meet, winning the 300M Hurdles as well as placing in both the 200M and 400M. The Dunham sisters, Camille and Coco, took 2nd and 3rd in the Long Jump and Triple Jump as well as their relay performances. Camille also placed 2nd to Evans in the 200M.
