The Chesterton girls track team will open its season tonight as they head to Highland.

“We’re pretty solid in every event,” Chesterton coach Bryan Nallenweg said. “We don’t have a ‘superstar’, but we have kids who will score well.”

On the track, the Trojans return junior Brianna Molnar and senior Emma Tumbas off of last season’s State-qualifying 4x100 relay. The duo should get help from freshman Ashley Craycraft.

“Brianna and Emma ran on the 4x1 at State and have a lot of experience coming back,” Nallenweg said. “Ashley established in the indoor season that she is one of our fastest kids.”

Kirsten Wozniak returns in the hurdles and will be a staple in the 4x400 relay.

“Kirsten in the hurdles could have a great year,” Nallenweg said.

In the distances, sophomore Shelby Bullock earned a medal in the HSR Indoor Meet and will have running mates in Kara Krol and Cara Sullivan.

“Shelby Bullock had an unbelievable indoor season,” Nallenweg said. “Kara Krol and Cara Sullivan will be right there in the distances too.”

In the field events, junior Zoi Heideman will be counted on to score points in the pole vault, while Maggie Brown and Brittney Troup hold down the high jump spots.

“Zoi in the pole vault should have a chance to win every night,” Nallenweg said. “In the high jump Maggie Brown and Brittney Troup give us a good 1-2 punch.”

In the throws, the Trojans return Yasmin Brown and will get help from freshman Victoria Gearhardt.

“Freshman Victoria Gearhardt threw pretty well indoors,” Nallenweg said. “Yasmin Brown is back after a good year in the discus last year.”
