In all the Lady Eagles set 2 NEW PROGRAM RECORDS, recorded an individual 1st, an individual Runner Up, 12 Top 10 Overall Finishes, 15 Top 20 Overall Finishes, and 11 Program All Time Top 10 best.

The HSR Qualifing meets are scheduled through the 1st three weeks of March leading up to the Indoor State Championships next Saturday March 23th.

The Top 24 ranked performers in each event in each class/division earn a spot in the HSR Finals held this year at the Fall Creek Pavillion located at the Indiana Fairgrounds.

Once again Friday night Lady Eagle Junior Ellie Campbell led the way. The 2023 IHSAA State Qualifier finished 2nd in the Long Jump with a new personal best indoor jump of 16-10. That jump also breaks the indoor program record she set previously two weeks ago with a jump just under 16-10. Campbell also tried her hand at High Jump for the 1st time in her career Friday night and cleared 5-2 for 1st Place Overall. Her clearance is the 2nd best jump in program history behind school record holder and 2 x State Champion 2015’s Miss Indiana Track & Field Janae Moffitt. Campbell passed Sam Mauk on the All Time list. Moffitt’s program record indoors is 5-10.

Campbell was also a member of the Lady Eagle’s 4×200 Meter Relay which was short of its season best time but still managed to finish 4th overall and after setting a new program record themselves last week post the 3rd best time ever Friday. Joining Campbell was classmate Cail Bowlin along with Senior Leah Highley and Sophomore Audrey Rex.

Rex was also part of the Lady Eagle’s best relay finish of the night helping the 4×400 Meter Relay take 3rd overall. Running without anchor Highley Rex along with classmates Biruk Travis and Lexi Nuber as well as Freshman Kora Pond battled to a 3rd place behind Warsaw and Delta. Their time of 4:28 was 8 seconds slower than their time a week ago but still good enough for 4th best in program history. Pond battled trying to hold off Delta’s multi time All American and State Champion Nicki Southerland ultiamtely coming from 4th up to 3rd.

Her time passed Krista Hobbs who ran 10.78 in 2014. The overall program record is actually a modifed/converted 55 Meter Hurdles mark by Allie Conway in 2012 of 10.32.
