The Ambassadors girls track team showed up ready to compete on Saturday, and they definitely didn’t disappoint the home crowd. “It has been many years since we have had a team with enough athletes to fill out all 16 track and field events.” commented Coach Preston. The field event athletes brought in some points for the Ambassadors. Ellie Entner tied the school record in high Jump and took 4th, Sarah Graver threw several personal records to place high in the standings for shot put and discus. Then in the running events Michaela Nelson gave the team 28pts with her finishes in the 100m, 200m, and 400m dashes. Loria Williams picked up 2nd in the 100m hurdles and 3rd in the 300m hurdles, while Bethany Norman secured her position of distance dominance as she won the 1600m and 3200m runs.
