Several athletes advance

Lady Rams place 10th as team


Five track and field athletes will represent Mt. Vernon at the 2A state final next week.

Charde Golliday along with the 3,200 meter relay team advanced with top finishes at Thursday's 2A Herrin sectional.

Mt. Vernon placed 10th as a team, scoring 26 points. Cahokia won the team title with 135 points. Other top five team scores were: Triad 51.5, Centralia 47, Marion 44 and Herrin 43.

The 3,200 meter relay team of Camilla Bauer, Zoe Mattingly, Kate Bushue and Olivia Zedalis finished with a time of 9:58.40. Freeburg won the race with a mark of 9:56.36.

The girls really competed well, each one in their relay,” Harre-Blair said.

Golliday entered the sectional meet with leg tightness that restricted her pre-sectional preparation. She jumped the state qualifying distance in the triple jump Thursday, which was 34 feet, 9 inches, and stopped. She also advanced in the 400 meters where she ran a time of 1:00.30. The mark was good for second place behind Cahokia's Mariya Hudson (58.02).

(The leg) was a lot better, but I think in that sense it was awful difficult for her to get herself going first in the long jump,” Harre-Blair said. “Because she hadn't done anything for basically a week.

Other top 10 placings for the Lady Rams were: Makayla Moore seventh in pole vault (7 feet, 6 inches); Golliday fifth in the long jump (18 feet, 10 inches); the 400 meter relay team of Deja Boyd, Moore, Letia Hollenkamp and Dazha Shelby was eighth (53.57 seconds); Hollenkamp seventh in the 100 meter hurdles (18.05 seconds); Mattingly 10th in the 800 meters (2:34.37); the 800 meter relay team of Boyd, Hollenkamp, Moore and Shelby sixth (1:54.73); Kate Bushue fifth in the 1,600 meters (5:45.80), Bauer sixth in the 1,600 meters (5:46.58); and the 1,600 meter relay team of Boyd, Mattingly, Bushue and Zedalis seventh (4:31.83).
