(April 21st, 2015) – WAUSEON: The Lady Indians, playing host to North Western Ohio Athletic League opponents Archbold and Liberty Center, earned a convincing victory in three way track action. Wauseon scored 76 points in the win, dwarfing the 45 and 43 totals of the Lady Tigers and Blue Streaks, respectively.
A major source of points for the Indians was the shot put event. Kallie Strauss earned first place with a throw of 33’05.5”. Senior Sally Frank claimed third place for the Indians, tossing the orb for 30’11”. Fourth place belonged to Katlyn DeGroff, who threw for 29’10.5” to earn the distinction.
Wauseon also took down multiple places in the 200 meter dash. It was McKayla Campbell who earned first place, as the sophomore ran a 30.34. Her teammate, Morgan Roth,, finished in third with a time of 31.28. Freshman Indian Rylee Campbell was less than a millisecond behind her, running a 31.34 for a fourth place showing.
The two mile race saw its top three places go to Lady Indian runners. Avery Giguere won the event, thanks to her time of 12:15.99. In second place was Aleea Volkman, who finished the run in 12:28.65. Her twin sister, Aneesa Volkman, was close behind in third place, running a 12:41.06.
In the 110 meter high hurdles, Halen Mealer and Morgan Roth earned top two finishes as well. Mealer, a sophomore for Wauseon, cleared the distance in 16.93. Fellow Indian Roth took second at 18.09. Third place went to an Archbold runner, who completed the race in 23.34.
Placing in the high jump were Wauseon girls Amy Bosell and Karli Penrod. Reaching a height of 4’06”, Bosell took down second place. Penrod cleared 4’04”, which tied her for second place.
The 4X100 meter relay team of Roth, Audry Lane, Raychel Ramos, and Samantha Gray edged out Liberty Center for a second place finish in the race. The quartet ran a 56.12, while their Lady Tiger counterparts finished at 56.56.
The Lady Indians won this meet by placing in almost every event, something not even Archbold, who is traditionally the best team in the area, could accomplish in the tri-meet. The ease with which Wauseon won this meet bodes quite well for a successful finish to their season.
