Meet Recap

Kollat The Lady Blazers Track team rose to the occasion last night and finished 2nd place at the NIC Championship Track Meet. Projected to finish 5th out of the 13 teams, the girls insisted that they were better than “average” and overachieved in several events to edge out Mishawaka 81-80.

It was a strong start to the night for Elkhart Central as the 4×800 meter relay team of Hadley Malloy, Antonia Hiland, Lauren Dibley, and Emma Romero took 2nd place, earning All-Conference 2nd Team. Also earning All-Conference were Tylar Roberson in the long jump and high jump and Jordan Ware in the discus.

celebrateThe night was capped off by Jordan Ware’s 1st place finish in the shot put as well as a 3rd place finish by the 4×400 meter relay team. Brianna Jones and Jayda Miller were joined by alternates Lauren Kollat and Tylar Roberson to run the team’s fastest time of the season.

“I am so proud of my team right now,” said head coach Crystal Davis who was voted NIC Coach of the Year after the meet. “Yesterday, I told them that if everyone performed as they were seeded, we would finish 5th. I asked them if we are an average team, or something better. They went out there tonight and fought for every point from the 4×800 to the 4×400 relay.”

As teams exited Rice Field after the meet, the ecstatic Lady Blazers celebrated while chanting “We’re not average!”

Last night, they were far from it–they were great.
