Southwestern wins Shelby County Girls Track and Field Meet title

With nine event wins, Southwestern left little doubt who the best girls track and field team was Wednesday at the Shelby County Track and Field Meet held at Waldron High School.


Abby Muck and Alison Muck each won two events and they joined two teammates to win the 400-meter relay.


Abby Muck took first place in the 100 meters in 13.01 then tied the Southwestern school record in winning the 200 in 26.91. Brooke Kistler was the sole record holder since 2014.


Alison Muck broke her own school record in the 100 hurdles, crossing the finish line in 16.43. She also won the high jump with a best clearance of five feet, one inch.


The Mucks teamed with Riley Engel and Lilly Rooks to win the 400 relay in another school record time of 51.56.


Rooks was the long jump winner with a best leap of 17-0.5.


Also winning events for Southwestern were Gracie Schlabach (1:06.55 in the 400), Kennedy Pile (28-2.5 in the shot put) and Trinity Tatlock (90-7 in the discus).


The Spartans’ 92 team points left Triton Central (56 points) and Morristown (56 points) battling for second. Waldron finished fourth at 22 points. The title is the second in program history following a championship in 2014.


The lone Mohawk to collect a Shelby County title was Hadlie Ross in the 800 (2:40.63).


Morristown’s lone individual winner was Rylee Kleine in the 3,200 (14:11.4).


Kleine ran with Gracie Laster, Raegan Kleine and Maggie Lutes to win the 3,200 relay (12:01.82).


Triton Central had two event winners. Hallie Schweiter was first across the finish line in the 1,600 (6:13.03). And Alyssa Lewis won the 300 hurdles in 50.53.


Schweitzer and Lewis combined with Vivian Blye and Madi Brown to win the 1,600 relay in 4:32.67.
