Head girls track and field coach Sandra Johnson is entering her fourth year at the helm and has her biggest group of girls out this spring. 20 girls will be working with Johnson and assistants Ron Nelson, Jim Lyons and Chris Skeen in hopes of improving on last year’s tenth place finish at the state meet.

Seniors Hailey Bruegger, Jessica Bruegger, Kassidy Miller, Jayci Shoults, Kristy DeGering, Rishell Lizasuain and Willow Waldock return and all but Waldock will be looking to earn a white letter.

The Bruegger girls are among the top hurdlers in the state and look to improve their times and qualify for state again. Hailey was questionable on participating after an ankle injury derailed the final month of her basketball season, but is rehabbing it in hopes of returning in time for the last few weeks.

Miller is a thrower and attempting to finish better than seventh at state in the shot put. Waldock is also a thrower while Lizasuain will be jumping and DeGering finished seventh at state last year in the 3200 run. Jayci Shoults came in fifth in the pole vault last year and will be long jumping and some sprints this year.

Just two juniors are on the squad and both Mckayle Mosley and Kylee Gaukel are newcomers to the track team. While Gaukel will be long jumping and learning some of the running events, Mosley will be running sprints and hurdles.

The sophomore class is also very thin as Lexi Blackburn and Rachel Lashmett are the only two on the team. Blackburn qualified for state in three events as a freshman, and will be trying to add the high jump to her list of events, which includes pole vault and some relays. Lashmett is a thrower and will be expected to improve in her second year.

Ten freshmen are out for the team and with that depth, they should help the team throughout the season and as the postseason meets arrive.

The Lady Tigers took a handful of athletes to the Chadron Indoor meet last Saturday and head to the Morrill Invitational this weekend. The only home meet is May 6 on Gibson Field at Fullmer Stadium.
