TRACK AND FIELD
13 personal records set at meet
The boys and girls teams set 13 personal records on Saturday, April 26, at the Southeastern Invitational. The girls finished in eighth place out of 13 teams while the boys finished in 13th out of 14 teams as both squads were without several seniors due to the annual senior trip.
In the girls meet, Julie Roberts set a new personal record — and placed third — in the 300-meter hurdles in 50.47 seconds, and she took seventh in the 100-meter hurdles in 19.1.
Other personal records were set by Dani Worsham in the 200-meter run (34.53), Maya Creighton in the 400-meter race (71.6) and the 400-meter relay team of AnnDee Pettiford, Roberts, Olivia Brintlinger-Conn and Ayeisha Allison (56.87). That team also came in fourth.
Charlotte Walkey finished with a third-place finish in the 800-meter run in 2:38.7, and came in fourth place in the 1600-meter race in 5:54.9.
In the boys meet, the top finish was recorded by the 800-meter relay team of Aaron Sherwood, Bryce White, Hayden Orme and Ed Johnson, who came in fifth in 1:41.0. Zak Kimmet’s shot put of 36´9.75˝ was good for seventh place, and a personal record. Eighth place finishers were Orme in the long jump (17´10˝), Oluka Okia in the high jump (5´4˝) and the 3,200-meter relay squad of Connor Gravely-Norvello, Carter Collins, Cameron Haught and Levi Brown (9:42.45). Personal records were acheived by Alex Lugo in the 800-meter run (2:40.22) and Brown in the 1,600-meter race (5:15.5).

Jasmine Davidson won the shot put and broke the school record with a throw of 32´8.5˝ on Thursday, April 24, when the McKinney Bulldogs competed at Urbana.

Bulldog jumper Brielle Willis won the girls long jump with 12´10.75˝ and Zach Lugo (6´06˝) and Paiden Kegley (6´0˝) won the pole vault competitions. Jude Meekin placed second in the 1600m run with a time of 6:41.08. Sam Wildenhaus placed second over 800m in 2:40.41 and third over 1600m in 5:40.32. Girls relay squads placed third in the 4x100m (59.85, Erazo, James, Davidson, Willis) and in the 4x200m (2:17.10, Erazo, Lemons, Brown, James). The boys 4x100m (Cooper, Schell, Crocker, Siler) placed second in a time of 2:05.21. Both the boys and the girls team placed overall in 3rd place behind Urbana and Fairbanks.
Girls lose home opener to DC
At their home opener last week, the YSHS girls softball team hosted a Dayton Christian team that had not lost an MBC league game the past two years with hopes of pulling off the upset. Unfortunately for the Lady Bulldogs, Dayton Christian scored four runs in the first inning on only one hit and ultimately won 13–2.
YSHS trailed 6–0 in the 4th inning when Dayton Christian pulled away. Freshman Dani Worsham and sophomore Ashley Longshaw used their speed on the bases to score runs for the Lady Bulldogs. Freshman Amelia Gray and junior Jesi Worsham both got on base twice. Sierra Lawrence pitched a complete game, striking out four and only allowing five hits.
The Lady Bulldogs also went on the road to play at Greenview last week. First baseman Rachele Orme hammered a double down the right field line to knock in two runs, and Lawrence scored two runs and Jesi Worsham and Chelsea Horton each scored a run for YSHS as they pulled out to a 2–0 lead in the first inning before losing to Greenview High School.
Boys fall to 1–6 on the season
Last Saturday, April 26, the YSHS boys baseball team lost to Emmanuel Christian, dropping the team’s record to 1–6.
