BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WANE) – With ten state titles already, Northrop went in to Friday’s meet in Bloomington with the most championships in history. Unfortunately, the Bruins will not be adding to that total, as the defending champs finished fourth as a team at the Haugh Track Complex.
The Bruins took first in the 4×400 as Amber McGee, Breanna Phillips, Latrice Bolts, and Victoria McCuiston recorded a time of 3:49.73. Northrop also finished fourth in the 4×100 relay as McGee, Alexis Scott, Alexis Huckleberry, and Jailyn Krantz recorded a time of 48.05 seconds. The Northrop 4×800 team came in sixth with a time of 9:21.71 while McGee finished second in the 200 meters at 24.72.
Concordia’s Symone Black was the only local to take first – and she took home two, setting a state meet record in the process. For the second year in a row Black won the 300 meter hurdles, but this season she set a new state mark at 41.36 seconds. Earlier in the day Black won the 100 meter hurdles with a time of 14.17, just ahead of Bellmont’s Holly Hankenson at 14.32. Hankenson would also finish third in the 300 meter hurdles at 43.50 and fourth in the long jump at 18 feet, five inches. Karrina Smith of Snider finished one spot ahead of Hankenson, coming in third place with a jump of 18 feet, six inches. Hankenson was awarded the state’s mental attitude award at the end of the meet.
