Rounding out the roster are Steppe in the high jump, Holly Moore in the long jump and sophomore Cassi Green in the triple jump. Both Green and Moore should give Effingham plenty of chances to score some added points.
“Cassi Green has been working really hard,” Williamson said. “She’s already looking at the low 30s which is a pretty good place to start. Holly Moore will be back in the long jump, she was jumping 16 at the end of last year, so she will be competitive in that.”
Coming off such a tremendous season, Williamson’s team has become accustomed to success. In spite of the harsh weather, Williamson said her team has put in the neccessary effort, in large part because they have such lofty, self-set goals on the line.
“They are really wanting to defend their Apollo Conference title this year. I think they are ready, they’re going to work very hard the month of April to get where they want to be.”
Effingham will host a quad meet on Monday with Olney, Cumberland and Altamont.
