Metamora High School girls track and field
Last year, after 10 straight Mid-Illini Conference girls track championship titles, the Metamora High School team finished second to Dunlap.
This year, Morton finished first to win its first title in 20 years.
Metamora won three of the four relays, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Potters in the overall team standings.
Metamora finished second with 109 points at the Mid-Illini girls track championship meet Thursday at Pekin. Morton had 169 points. Dunlap was third with 107 points.
Metamora senior Meghan Heman defended her title in the 100-meter dash. She edged teammate Lindsey Wille to finish first in that event.
Wille won the 200-meter dash ahead of teammate Maddie Hadfield.
Heman, Melanie Stratton, Maddie Hadfield and Ellen Goins teamed up to win the 4X100 meter relay.
Goins finished second in the 400-meter dash.
Metamora also won the 4X200 meter relay (Hadfield, Heman, Stratton, Wille) and the 4X400 meter relay (Goins, Raven Gutierrez, Hadfield, Holly Pfaff).
Gutierrez was fifth in the 800.
Metamora junior Kristin Anglin won the pole vault.
Metamora senior Sarah Flintgruber finished fourth in the 3200 and 1600-meter runs.
