TRACK & FIELD

Bulldogs shine at regionals

The Bulldogs sent a strong contingent to the Division III Regional meet last week at Troy Memorial Stadium, with two athletes earning medals.

Senior Annlyn Foster capped off a stellar career with an eighth-place finish in the 100 hurdles. This fall, Foster will attend Park University in Arizona where she also will be a member of the track and field team. Sophomore Cheyan Sundell-Turner earned a hard fought eighth place in the 3,200 meters despite battling cold and windy conditions.

Senior Haneefah Jones wound up her outstanding career with a 12th place finish in the long jump. Junior sprinter Malaya Booth ended up in 12th place in the 100 meters, while fellow junior Yanne Gilley had a competitive effort in the long jump. The 400 meter relay group of Jones, Booth, Avery Reeder and Foster ran a season best time and placed 11th.

Coaches Isabelle Dierauer and John Gudgel commented that the performances at regionals were reflective of the all-around efforts that all of the tracksters displayed this season. Overcoming a lost season of competition last year due to COVID did not deter the Bulldogs from achieving solid marks this spring.

SOFTBALL

Wallace tapped for all-star game

Yellow Springs senior softball player Bre Wallace was selected to play in the Ohio Southwest District Softball Coaches Senior All Star Game, which will be played June 10 at 5 p.m. at West Carrollton High School.

Wallace played catcher for the Bulldogs, and her .571 batting average was tops in the Metro Buckeye Conference. Wallace was also second in the conference for runs batted in, with 23, and third for runs scored, with 20.

Wallace put up excellent hitting statistic numbers this season; her efforts will be recognized by playing in this all-star game.
