The Blue Devils girls track team picked up victories over Anchor Bay and Farmington Mercy.

Information submitted by Steve Zaranek and Dana Kaiser.

The girls track team improved their dual meet mark to 4-0 with wins this past week over both Anchor Bay and Farmington Mercy.

The 3200 run highlighted the week as junior Hannah Meier broke her own school record covering the eight laps in 10:40.9. The old mark, set last year by Meier, was 10:42. Four days later, sophomore Kelsie Schwartz raced to a 10:50.9.

Against both Anchor Bay and Mercy, South won 16 of the 17 events. South defeated Anchor Bay 116-21 and defeated Mercy 113-24.

Against Mercy, Hannah Meier teamed up with freshman Ersula Farrow to go 1-2 in the 800 run with times of 2:12 and 2:16, respectively. These are two of the fastest times in the state this year. "Ersula has learned so much from Hannah, Haley, and Kelsie. She is an incredible force and one of the finest freshmen runners in the state."

Senior Caitlin Moore continued her dominance in the sprints winning the 100 in 12.9 and the 200 in 26.5. Moore also anchored South's winning sprint relay teams. Members of those teams included Mia Perkins, Christy Ford, Andrea DiCresce, and Cierra Rice.

Moore, Hannah Meier, Farrow, and Schwartz also teamed up to run a 4:06 in the 1600 relay - again, one of the elite times in the state this year.
