BHS girls, Miles have ‘monster’ day at Redbud Classic
The Baldwin High School girls track team has a reputation of destroying the competition. Out of the last seven meets the Bulldogs have participated in, they have won six of them. And the only one they didn't win was at Wichita's K.T. Woodman by just a few points.
The latest destruction the Bulldogs caused was at Wellsville, where they won with 132 total team points, more than doubling second place Eudora score of 62.
"It has been really exciting to be dominating at all of our meets. We have high expectations for league, regionals and state," said sophomore Jessica Hill.
The meet had seven personal best time finishes, including the 3,200-meter relay, 100-meter dash, 1,600-meter run, 100-meter hurdles, 3,200-meter run, 400-meter dash, 300-meter low hurdles, 800-meter run and throwers 400-meter relay. The team also broke three Wellsville track records, including 400-meter relay, 1,600-meter relay and the 200-meter dash.
"We had a monster day with a lot of personal best marks of the season highlighted by Rachel Miles 100 and 200-meter record runs," said coach Ted Zuzzio.
Miles also had a big day running the 100-meter dash in 12.4 seconds, which tied the school record set by Kalene Delano in 1978.
"It was a good day all around. We had good weather and I felt good. I could tell I was running fast. It was very exciting to tie a record that old," said Miles.
The Bulldog's next action will be Frontier League to be held at Prairie View today.
