The Roeper Girls MS Track and Field team finished their season Tuesday night at Detroit Country Day. Highlights of the meet included the girls 2nd place finish in the 800m relay with the team of Myrkia Mcguire, Nya Newsome, Macy Smith, and Andie Giftos. Rachel Wine placed 5th in the 100m and 8th in the 70m. Macy Smith placed 5th in the 400m. Macy Smith was also awarded the girls MVP award for the 2017 season for her positive attitude, efforts, commitment to the team and never missing a single practice.
“I am proud of our girl’s accomplishments, efforts, and commitment, we have a young but talented team. We have grown the girls program from 3 last year to 12 this year and will continue to shoot for more numbers next year. We are losing a few key 8th graders, but they will certainly flourish at the next level in high school. I want our focus next year to be commitment to the team and growing our numbers. We have talent we just need a few more people to go from where we are to where we want to be.” -Coach Nik Lamansky
