Lancers Boys and Girls win 54th SME Quad Track Meet

In the 54th SME Quad Track and Field meet the Boys and Girls teams won convincingly.  The Girls team won by 23.5 points while the Boys also came on top winning by 36 points.  The other schools that competed in this meet were Shawnee Mission West, Saint Thomas Aquinas and Topeka High School.

In both the boys and girls competitions Shawnee Mission West took second place.  In the girls meet Aquinas took third and Topeka came in fourth while in the boys meet those two schools were reversed with Topeka in third and Aquinas coming in fourth.

Early in the field events junior Grace Pickell smashed the school record in the girls high jump.  The previous record was 5 feet 5 inches but Tuesday Pickell soared past that with a leap of 5 feet 8 inches.

The Lancers finished the meet with back-to-back first place finishes in the Boys and Girls 4×400 relays.

“It was a real team effort and it is obvious that the road to state definitely started with this big win today,” Hurdlers coach David Pennington said to the team in an email Tuesday night.

The Lancers next meet will be this Saturday at the annual Shawnee Mission South Relays meet.
