Christian Dual Meet 6 May 2004


Between them Katherine Wingert, Beth Wittry, Nila Herutelou and Jamie Klages amassed nearly all of the 64 points needed to win a track meet in the final dual meet of the season last Thursday against Christian. The final tally was 88-39 as the Islander girls went undefeated for the 3rd season in a row while winning the Harbor league championship for the 3rd year in a row. Wingert had a huge PR in the 1600 meter run, winning in 5:11.6, a time that ranks among the top 5 in the county this year. She also won the 800 in 2:29, the 3200 and ran the anchor leg on the winning 1600 meter relay team. Klages won the high jump at 5 feet, as well as both the 100 and 300 meter hurdles. Wittry won the 400, triple jump and, along with Heurtelou, ran on both the winning 400 and 1600 relay teams. Heurtelou also won both the 100, and 200 meter sprints.

Alexis Castro won the shot put and placed 3rd in the discus throw behind winner Megan Mushovic, who also placed 2nd in the high jump, 3rd in the long jump and ran the 4x100. Ashlee Houston placed 2nd in both the 100 hurdles and long jump and ran the 4x100. The closest girls race of the day was the 4x400. Christian put in a surprisingly fast team against a leg weary Islander team of Wittry, Heurtelou , Danielle Eckert and Wingert requiring Wingert to pass in the final stretch to win in 5:18.1 to Christian’s time of 5:19.8.
