Harper High School’s girls’ track and field team opened the 2014 season with five first places and an overall third place finish in the varsity portion of the Hubbell Relays held Saturday in Junction.
Ladyhorns taking top spots in individual events were Payton Reid (pole vault, 8’6”) and Logan White (100-meter hurdles, 15.7).
Four-member relay squads earning first places for Harper were the 4x100-meter relay (Sydney Collins, Logan White, Megan Myers, Haylee Poorman, 53.31), 4x200-meter relay (Collins, Poorman, Myers, Reid, 1:52.84), and 4x400-meter relay (Collins, Taylor Reid, Myers, Payton Reid, 4:19.30).
In junior varsity action, the Ladyhorns captured a pair of individual first places — Chrissie Bryant (long jump) and Lizzy Haines (200-meter run) — in addition to the 100-meter and 200-meter relays run by Abby Skiff, Bryant, Julia Mauldin and Haines.
The JVs finished the meet in second place.
