Track team sets many personal bests at All-Ohio

BG’s track team finished eighth of 12 teams at the All-Ohio Championships, which all featured other Mid-American Conference teams Akron, Miami, Kent State and Ohio. Coach Cami Wells was satisfied with the effort of the team this weekend. ‘We are continuing to move in the right direction,’ Wells said. ‘The competition this weekend gave us a good look at the type of competition we will see at the MAC meet in May.’ Each event awarded points for the top eight finishers. Senior Whitney Hartman scored points in both the hammer and discus throw. Sophomore Brittani McNeal scored points in the long jump and was part of the 4×400 meter relay that finished fifth. The athletes had some very impressive marks in all the events, including a number of personal bests this weekend. Hartman’s discus throw of 46 meters was good for a season personal best. The 4×400 meter relay time of 3:58.37 was the team’s best effort of the year. Sophomore Heather Conger and freshman Saisha Gailliard ran outdoor personal bests in the 800 meter run. Also recording personal bests were sophomore Autumn Dettmann, senior Kara Butler and sophomore Ashley Fischer in the 1500 meter run. Junior Shantel Lewis ran a season best in the 200 meter run, as was senior Kylie Korsnack’s throw in the javelin. ‘We now need to build on that to get ourselves in a position to fight for points at the MAC meet in May,’ Wells said. ‘I am pleased with the progress. We are as healthy as we could hope at this time of the season.’ A feel-good coming from the track team could be the return of Stephanie Hillman. The senior’s participation has been limited this season due to injuries, but she performed well last weekend. Wells called Hillman in prime condition and mentioned her as a contender in the 10K within the conference. Senior TaKarra Dunning finished runner up in the shot put with a throw of 15.05 meters. She earned the tie-breaker over Akron’s Stevi Large with her second best throw of the day. The team will compete in Hillsdale, Mich., this coming weekend.
