BHS girls third at K.T. Woodman
The Baldwin High School girls varsity track team had a strong showing at the tough K.T. Woodman track meet in Wichita Friday.
"We did awesome and it felt real good finishing in third place out of 23 schools," said girls track coach Ted Zuzzio.
Baldwin had 22 medal winners and had great showings in many individual and team events. Junior Jamie Lawrenz finished fourth in the 100-meter hurdles, third in the 300-meter hurdles and had a third-place finish in the pole vault. Fellow junior Rachel Miles took fourth in the 200-meter dash and second in the 400-meter dash.
"We had kids with monster career days," said Zuzzio.
The Baldwin girls relay team also had a good day with two second place finishes in the 4x400-meter relay and 4x800-meter relay and a third place finish in the 4x100-meter relay.
"This is one of our hardest meets we go to and I think we did well. It helped prepare us for regional competition," said sophomore Kelli Harris.
Baldwin finished with 64 total points which was good enough for a third place finish out of a 23-team meet. Girls track continues its season Monday at Paola.
