Bella Berardi Jumping a Season Best 16' 5" in the Long Jump for First!
Congrats to the girls track team who defeated Medway today 74-62 for their second victory on the season (2-2).  Lead by Bella Berardi, the girls got 9 first place finishes, with Bella nabbing 2 of them: the 400 meters and the long jump.  Bella also came in second in the 200 to teammate Brooke-Lynn Williams, who both bettered their season best in that event.  Brooke-Lynn also won the 100 meters.

Mary Diestel continued to rack up varsity points on the season today getting another 9 today with her first place finish in the 400 hurdles with a lifetime best.  She also was 2nd in the triple jump and 3rd in the high jump.

Kambrynn Bowman showed her senior leadership pacing her speedster teammate Julia Palin into a state qualifying time in the 800 as they both finished within one-tenth of each other for the 1-2 placements. Both those girls bookend-ed the  4x400 relay to victory winning by a very narrow margin of 0.2!
