The Montgomery Catholic Girl’s Track team has been pushing all year. During the Indoor season these athletes brought home the runner-up trophy, but knew that with hard work and determination they would be able to add to the school’s trophy case by becoming the first girls’ track team in Montgomery Catholic school history to bring home the State Championship.
The team is young, and they worked hard to be stronger and faster this year. Coaches Ed Wright, Hollis Johnson, Coy Hunter and Kevin Madden are extremely proud of how hard they worked during the year. The 2017 AHSAA State Outdoor Track meet will go down in the record books with the following accomplishments by the MCPS Girl’s team:
Isabelle Coachran- Winning the Long Jump, a Member of the Outdoor winning 4X800M relay, placing second in the 300 meter hurdles; Katie Galvin- Member of the Outdoor winning 4X800M relay; Katelyn Stark- Member of the Outdoor winning 4X800M relay; Amaris Tyynismaa- winning both the 1600M, and 3200M, and as a Member of the Outdoor winning 4X800M relay, placing second in the 800 meter.
Adding to the points that day were: Tamrah Tucker- second in the 100 meter dash, third in the 200 meter dash, Grace Leslie, Jimmiah Fenderson and Morgan Yorton.
