After winning the April Showers Relays on Saturday, the Pioneer girls’ track and field team kept right in stride with an impressive performance on Tuesday against visiting Monroe.
The Pioneers dominated the dual-meet with a 112-16 victory, displaying both front-line talent and great depth.
“It was a great job under less than desirable conditions – another meet with rain and cold weather,” said Pioneer Coach Nancy Boudreau.
The pole vault was cancelled because of dangerous conditions. After stringing extension cords over the track to get electricity to the finish line, the running events finally started a little after 5 p.m.
Pioneer didn’t let the conditions get them down and recorded four all-time bests – Emily Rennich in the 1600; Triniah Johnson in the high jump; and Anna Vogel and Rachel Pacernick in the 400.
The Pioneers also had several Regional Qualifying marks: Shelby Hall and Ilena Garrett in the 100; Tiffany Cernej-Garcia in the 100 hurdles and 200; Lauren Jamsen and Sophy Cunningham in the 800; and Anne Forsyth and Zofia Dudek in the 3200.
“There were also too many seasonal bests to list everyone,” Boudreau said. “The team is starting to round into shape – we now need some good weather so we can get some additional Regional marks.”
