Lady Rattler Sprint Medley Runs for Gold at Cedar Ridge

March 16, 2015

The Lady Rattler Track Team competed at the Cedar Ridge Raider Relays this past Saturday. The weather was beautiful; the competition, fierce; and our girls had much to celebrate–placing in almost every event contested.

Some of the most memorable moments include Holly Hyrnyshyn’s PR in the Shot Put; Pole Vaulters (Emili Labanna and Kirby Hayden) both cleared season bests of 9’ and SHARED the Bronze medal (literally); and our gold-medal-earning Sprint Medley Relay performance by Lizzie Reinke, Kate Ryan, Mikayla Hinojosa, and Grace Fraga got the crowd to it’s feet. Gold medals are often earned by our Lady Rattlers; however, this one was special: a come-from-behind victory by four 1st-time Varsity racers—beautiful execution and even more inspiring grit!
