The Scott Community High School junior varsity girls ran away with the Larned Invitational title - literally - in their opening competiton of the season.
Competing against a mix of varsity and junior varsity teams, the Lady Beavers won 12 events and finished with 172 points - more than double that of runner-up Macksville (88.5).
“In your first meet of the season you’re not too worried about times and distances,” says head coach Jim Turner. “I was more interested in seeing how the girls would compete and they did pretty well.
“In some events we saw some decent competition and we were pushed a little. In others, not so much.”
Scott City owned the track, winning 10 of 11 running events. The only event they didn’t win was the 3200m in which they didn’t have anyone entered.
Freshman Brynn McCormick was one of only two individuals to claim a pair of gold medals. She swept the 100m high hurdles (18.34) and the 300m low hurdles (53.31).
SCHS had three medalists in both hurdle races. Sophomore Paige Vulgamore was a bronze medalist in the 100m hurdles (20.09) and added a sixth place finish in the low hurdles (63.25). Sophomore Brooke Hoeme picked up a bronze in the 300m low hurdles with a career best of 59.11 and added a fifth place finish in the high hurdles (20.41).
