The Panthers had a great showing at the IHSAA Sectional Track Meet at Warsaw on Tuesday finishing 7th in the 15 team field.
The 4 x 100 Relay Team of Reagan Hartman, Emma Martz, Lexi Parisi, and Riley Hershberger were the lone sectional champions for NorthWood in a time of 50.70. The 4 x 400 team finished third in 4:10.11 to also qualify for next week’s Regional to be held at Warsaw. That relay team consists of Alea Minnich, Kali Parisi, Lexi Parisi, and Sara Lopez.
On the bubble for qualifying for Regional as “call back” entrants are Riley Hershberger in the 100 and 200, Alea Minnich in the 400, Sara Lopez in the 800, and the 4 x 800 Relay Team of Kendal Miller, Kaitlyn Burden, Emilie Allen, and Sara Lopez who were all fourth in their events. Lexi Parisi is also a possible “call back” after finishing 6th in the 200.
Other place winners for NorthWood were Karissa Kauffman in Shot Put (8th), Brooke Roa in Pole Vault (7th), and Kali Parisi in 300 Hurdles (8th).
