The Roeper MS Girls Track and Field Team experienced their first large invitational of the season. Despite several athletes being absent due to illness, the girls made some waves and competed hard against the 26 other schools present at the meet. Rachel Wine made it to the semi-finals in the 100m, finishing 9th overall. Macy Smith won her heat of the 400m and finished 12th overall. The girls 1600m Relay team of Macy Smith, Ava Thomas, Amina Thompson, and Noelle Van Hoef finished 8th overall. The 800m team finished in 9th place overall. Irena Thomas grabbed 11th in the Shot Put. Many relays and events were not able to be participated in due to the heavy absence of key team members. Overall the girls did the best they could and were able to get a taste of what it’s like to compete in a big invitational. The girls compete again on Wednesday at Greenhills.
