Mead runs PHS meet best

STERLING — Princeton’s Zoe Mead is off to a running start in the indoor track season.

The PHS senior won the 800 meters in Friday’s Newman Indoor Open at Westwood in Sterling, clocking a PHS meet best time of 2 minutes, 27.1 seconds. PHS coach Pat Hodge said Mead was five seconds ahead of her best 800 time previously in this meet.

Colbi Schertz threw over three feet farther in the shot put from her previous meet best, placing second at 35-11. Taylor Clark came in third (30-9 1/2).

Placing fourth for the Tigresses were Taylor Weatherington int he long jump (14-7), Tieg Sisler in the high jump (4-6) and 60-meter hurdles (11.75), Sierra Storm in the pole vault (7-6) and Ann Sims in the 60 meters (8.72).

Sims also took fifth in the triple jump (28-8) as did Kim Glenn in the 50-meter hurdles (11.85).

“I was very pleased with our performances for the most part,” PHS coach Pat Hodge said. “We had a couple of freshmen with nice performances that were able to win ribbons and several more who just missed placing in the top six. All of our returning athletes who placed in the top six had their best performances for this particular meet.”

There were no team scores kept.
