CHS girls Track team ventures outdoors

Chesterton girls track coach Steve Kearney’s last ride through a season will be an interesting one.

“I think we’ll represent in all areas pretty well, but we need to show some growth still,” Kearney said. “Some of the kids from last year are back and that’s nice. Our biggest strength is probably that we are competitive in every aspect.”

On the track, the Trojans return Jordyn Kincy and Ana Acevedo in the middle distance events, while Molly Wilson should score points in the sprints.

Chesterton should also get a boost from the return of Kaylee Lindahl, who missed the indoor season with an injury.

“Molly was one of the top kids in the area in the 60 indoors,” Kearney said. “Ana is a crossover kid and Jordyn has the chance to be as good as she wants to be.”

In the distance events, Cara Sullivan, Kassidy Scott and Shelby Snyder had solid indoor seasons according to Kearney.

“With those three, along with Josie Tolin, Kelly Arlow and Kaylee Slont, our distance crew could be a strength,” Kearney said.

Sullivan also helps a talented high jump group. Sullivan has cleared 5-feet, while Brianna Stephan has gone 5-feet-1.

In the long jump, Brittany Boryzch and Kaitlin Loehmer will lead their crew as Megan Kerkes holds down the top spot in the shot put.

Erin Socha qualified for the indoor state finals in the pole vault and should be one of the area’s top vaulters.

“The conference is so good,” Kearney said. “We have to develop some areas if we are going to be competitive with the top teams.”
