BJHS girls track teams take second

May 7, 2003

At Paola on Tuesday both Baldwin Junior High School girls track teams finished second out of 10 teams.

"It was an outstanding day," said coach Eric Toot.

Some of the top finishers of the meet included Kelsey Verhaeghe, who placed first in the 800- and 1600-meter runs. Ashley Tucker placed first in the shot put and Tessa Dick finished first in the two-mile run.

"Most of the girls have improved on a consistent basis throughout the year," said Toot.

With all the improvement for the girls it could be possible for them to accomplish their season goal, which is finishing in the top three as a team at the league meet.

"Overall, it has been a successful season," said Toot. "The girls have performed at a high level and represented the school in a positive fashion."

The girls finished their season Saturday at the Frontier League meet at Prairie View and results will be printed when available.
