BV, PHS compete at Westwood

STERLING — Bureau Valley hosted its girls indoor track and field open at the Westwood Complex Thursday where Princeton, Henry and Riverdale competed. No team scores were kept.

The host Storm had four individual winners. Lindsey Hoffert won the 200 meters (30.1); Regan Weidner won the 1600 meters (5:33.4) and 800 meters (2:33.41); Haley DeVoss claimed the 60 meters (7.2); and Krista Naaktgeboren cleared 6-0 in the pole vault.

BV also gained seconds from Hoffert in the 400, Riley Francis in the 800 meters (2:55.11) and Abby Howes in the high jump (4-2), and thirds from Katelin Johnson in the 400 (1:08) and 200 (30.3), Lauren Peterson in the 60-meter hurdles (9.1) and its 4x400 relay (4:50) of Weidner, Riley Francis, Naaktgeboren and Peterson.

Princeton’s Phoenix Smallwood turned a double play in the jumps, using a PHS meet best to win the long jump (16-10) and triple jump (35-6 3/4). Zoe Mead also turned in a PHS meet best of 1:06 to win the 400.

Mead added a second in the 200 meters (29.23), and Colbi Schertz picked up second in the shot put (30-11). Third-place finishes went to Taylor Clark in the shot put (28-9 3/4), Ann Sims in the long jump (14-1), Hailey Schultz in the high jump (4-6) and the 4x400 relay of Fran Bowman, Sims, Kelsey Moore and Kira Harp (2:05.85).

PHS coach Pat Hodge noted the Tigresses had some nice improvements over last week’s season opener.
