LSW Girls Perform Well In Kansas

May 24, 2014

The Lees Summit West girls track team competed at the Kansas Relays over the weekend and came away with some excellent performances. The Lady Titans won the Distance Medley Relay in 12:27.29 for the 7th time in the past 9 years on Friday. On Saturday they came back and won the Sprint Medley Relay in 4:14.06 for the first time in school history. The Sprint Medley Relay was also a school record by 8 seconds. Lee's Summit West High School was the only school at the Kansas Relays to win two relay events at the meet that was represented by a total of 8 Midwest states. We finished 2nd in the relay team competition 1 point behind Francis Howell High School from St. Louis.

Other Lady Titan placers were,

Jamie Newsome 2nd place in the triple jump 37-3.75

Bryce Lang-SO 28th place in the triple jump 32-10.5

Nicole Kallenberger-SO 2nd place in the pole vault 10-10

Nicole Kallenberger 17th place in the 300 hurdles 48.51

Annika Sisson 2nd place in the 2000 Meter Steeplechase 7:47.38

Samantha Phillips 6th place in the 2000 Meter Steeplechase 8:29.35

Kelly Vogel in the Pole Vault No Heighted

4x1mile Relay 16th Place in 23:04.73 (Samantha Phillips, Ally Iseman-FR, Cori Persinger-SO, Cami Oster-SO)

4x800 Meter Relay 11th Place in 10:05.19 (Kourtney West, Ally Iseman, Cori Persinger, Cydney Edwards-JR)

"I was very pleased to see our girls step up in all the events we were entered. To even be selected to compete in the meet is an honor and to place at the top of any event is even more difficult considering this is a representation of the best athletes in the Midwest. I thought the Sprint Medley and Distance Medley Relays ran extremely well and had great team chemistry. The one thing I did notice is our girls had a lot of fun over the weekend which is what the sport of track and field should always be about and think it will help us gain momentum heading into our championship meets in May," coach Jesse Griffin said.
