Lady Beavers ready to emerge as one of top teams in Class 3A

Since winning their last state championship in 1994, the Scott Community High School girls have not been able to return to the top of the podium at the state track and field championships.

The Lady Beavers had a third place finish in 2013, along with a pair of fifth place finishes in 2012 and 2014 - all with ace sprinter Kelly Wycoff leading the way.

“We’ve had a lot of good individuals, but we haven’t been able to get it done as a team,” notes head coach Jim Turner.

This may be the year that changes.

The SCHS girls finished seventh a year ago, albeit quite a ways out of the team chase, but they return a solid group of state qualifiers and have some newcomers who could make them one of the area’s surprise teams.

“I know a lot of attention has been on our boys, but I think the girls could be pretty good this season,” says Turner.
