Charger track teams set to make marks

The North Decatur track and field teams showcased their abilities Tuesday night in a tri meet against South Decatur and Rushville.

Of the 28 combined athletes on the season-opening rosters, just three are seniors. The majority are sophomores or younger, while just 11 are juniors and seniors.

Returning are three regional qualifiers aiming for a chance to advance to the state tournament. Senior Kevin Nielsen competed in the high jump and the 100-yard dash in the Shelbyville Regional. He also competes in the 300-meter hurdles.

For the Lady Chargers, junior Allie Louder qualified for the discus in the regionals and sophomore Kaylee Rosenbach competed in the high jump. Louder will lead North in throwing events this spring.

Senior Grant Ricke competes in the sprints, including the 4x100 meter relay.

Although the North girls do not have any seniors, depth is not a problem for the coaches’ meet lineups. Several alternate runners were available for the Lady Chargers Tuesday. North fielded a team for all three relay races, and placed in the top four in all but one event.

Lost to graduation was regional qualifier Jenna Meyer, who competed in the discus throw and shot put. Meyer won the Mid-Hoosier Conference title in the discus, and placed second in the shot put by breaking her previous school record. She contributed 18 of the 93.5 team points in the MHC. Katie Stevens (sprints) and Veronica Yager (distance) also graduated.

The boys lost thrower Nick Gehrich and runner Kaleb Kramer (800) to graduation.

Sophomore runner Megan Hoover will be a key contributor for North after being involved in 34 of North’s 93.5 MHC points. Hoover ran in the 800 and also competed in the 4x800 and 4x400 relays Tuesday.

Juniors Emily Scott and Celeste Pacilio (one-mile, 800, 4x800) look to have productive seasons on the track. Rounding out the juniors are Katia Saldana (throws) and Karmen Quek.
