Track and field state finals: BHS in four events

“It was a good night for the Lady Bulldogs as they traveled to Shelbyville High School to compete in the regional meet” May 27, said coach Lisa Gausman.

Batesville High School athletes will go on to the girls’ track and field state finals in four events Friday night, June 6, at Indiana University.

Finishing in the top three in each event automatically qualifies students to advance to the state level: Ginny Westerfeld, 100 and 200-meter dashes; Kim Tidman, long jump; and the 4 x 100-meter relay team of Ginny Westerfeld, Kim Tidman, Sophie Meadows and Michaela Westerfeld (alternates Beth Werner, Madeline Robben, Alison Muckerheide and Annie Freese).

There were also three school records broken. According to Gausman, “Ginny Westerfeld broke her own record in the 200 dash, where she placed third with a time of 25.67, and she finally broke the 100 dash school record held by Jessi Parmer back in 1986 of 12.34. Ginny clocked at 12.22 and placed second.

The 4 x 100 relay team also broke a 1986 record. The old record was 51.04 held by Lori Meyer, Jessi Parmer, Cindy Simmermeyer and Benita Weisenbach. The 2014 4 x 100 team placed third, just out of second place by .01 seconds away from East Central at a time of 50.67.

Tidman placed third in the long jump with a leap of 16-8 1/4 and also scored in the high jump placing seventh (5-0).

Other scorers for the team were Kelsey Gausman, just shy of a third-place finish as she ran her best time of the season in the 1,600 run, placing fourth with a time of 5:24.49.

Others just missing out on scoring spots, but running well were Grace Yeaton in the 3,200 run, ninth with a personal best time of 12:08.54. Also, the 4 x 800 team of Sarah Poltrack, Mary Poltrack, Grace Yeaton and Lauren Eckstein and the 4 x 400 team of Kim Tidman, Michaela Westerfeld, Kelsey Gausman and Ginny Westerfeld both placed ninth.

The coach summed up, “As a team, the Bulldogs fared very well, placing fifth overall out of 29 scoring schools.” Top teams were Warren Central, 113; Columbus North, 91; Center Grove, 55; Franklin Central, 39; and Batesville, 32.5. “As you can see, all four schools that outscored us are 5A schools. So proud of our ‘Dogs!”
