With winners in four events Tuesday, Union picked up the win in a five-team track meet at Washington.
The Lady ’Cats topped the girls’ standings with 95 points.
“We have a small girls team this year, but a lot of strong talent,” Union Head Coach Sarah Meiners said. “Deseray Washington in particular had a strong day with a strong performance (close to her PR) in the 100 hurdles, a PR of 5-0 in high jump, and an impressive 200-meter dash time.”
Washington was second with 91 points, Warrenton third at 83 and Borgia fourth at 66. The Fulton School (St. Albans) was also involved in the meet.
“I really like the spirit on the girls team,” Borgia Coach Mitch Figas said. “We ran 12 girls in the 1,600-meter relay, many of whom were running the 400 for the first time. Everyone really gave their all and it was great to see the way they were all complementing each other after the race. We have a great mix of new and experienced athletes who really push each other to improve.”
