Panthers’ road to state

Amanda Lewandowski, Staff Writer

The lady panthers have now won a record 12 straight team regional titles, the longest streak in Indiana.

Although many panthers placed fourth, just outside of the third and final qualifying place for state, the team rallied enough effort to win the title. The panthers topped rival cougars 84-72.

Individuals moving on are Toudora Galuska winning the 800, and Zarya deSouza who placed fourth in the 1,600. She is moving on due to North’s Grace Williams scratching out in the event so she can focus on the 3,200. In addition, all three relay teams are moving on: the 4×1 placed third, the 4×8 placed first, and the 4×4 placed second.

Senna Hendricks is a member of the 4×1 relay moving on, and her goals for the relay team’s state performance are to “hit our hand-offs, and run our best and set new PR’s” This is Hendricks second season on the track team and her favorite part of the team is all of the new friendships she has made because of it, “I’ve become best friends with the girls I didn’t know before track!”

The team standings at the end of the night were South in first with 84 points, North in second with 72 points, and Jeffersonville in third with 53 points.
