The Womens Varsity Track team competed for City Championships on April 17 and won first place. Just around the corner, the women’s varsity Track Team also placed first in the Greater Kansas City Suburban Conference White Division Track and Field meet on May 2.

For City Championships the Indians accumulated 108.5 points. Girls Varsity Head Coach JD Snead has coached track for 23 years. He feels this year has been a fun, successful year thanks to the hard work and dedication from the team.

“Overall as a team we have a pretty positive team environment,” Coach Snead said. “We’ve won City Champs the last four years. It’s been since our current seniors were freshmen the last time we won the conference meet and that’s a little tougher to win.”

The Indians scored overall 127 for the conference meet. Junior Sam Mygatt placed second in Pole Vault and third in 100m Hurdles. Mygatt thinks the team really stepped up their game for both the City Championship and the conference meet.

“It’s really exciting because we won way more than what we expected,” Mygatt said. “A lot of the girls performed way better than they were set to.”

Senior Emari Grimes placed first in 100m, 200m and 400m at the conference meet. She believes being involved in track has helped her branch out to more people and socialize with not only other team members but also people from other schools.

“I just liked all of the people that I met at different schools,” Grimes said. “People at this school I probably wouldn’t have met them or talked to them in the halls because I’m shy. In track we all have something in common so it made it easier.”

For the City Championships the Indians beat Truman, William Crisman and Van Horn. The Indians also defeated Raytown, North Kansas City, William Chrisman, Belton, Oak Park, and Ruskin at the Conference Meet.
