Girls track returns top state placers
The Baldwin High School girls track team is kicking off the season with an early start. The Bulldogs started practice on March 1.
There are 33 signed up for track this year, including six seniors. Four of the six seniors are state medal winners. Rachel Miles was the state champion in the 400-meter dash. Erica Ogle placed seventh in the two-mile race, and ninth in the one-mile race. Jamie Lawrenz placed fifth in the 300-meter hurdles. Leah Clay and the rest of the 4X100-meter relay team placed third.
The Bulldogs won seven out of 10 meets last year and the other three were second- or third-place finishes. The Bulldogs have won back-to-back Frontier League and regional titles.
Their first meet will be held in Baldwin on April 2.
"We had a very exciting season last year and, with all returning quality athletes and some young faces, this one looks to be even better," said coach Ted Zuzzio.
