Hearts win tri-meet at Mount Vernon

MT. VERNON — The Lady Hearts track team braved the windy conditions and turned in a first-place performance at a tri-meet at Mount Vernon on Monday. Effingham scored 75 points, good enough for 24 more than the host team and 45 points ahead of third-place Salem.

There were a number of Lady Hearts that came in first in their respective events, starting with Kelly Keitel. Keitel won the high jump with her 4 foot 8 inch performance, and placed second in the 3200 meters with a time of 16:21.

Kristina Rivera also turned in a pair of top-two finishes. She won the 100-meter dash in a time of 14.01, and had a long jump of 14 feet 5 inches to finish just short of first. Shayna Phillips took home top honors in the 800 with a 2:40 showing, with Jenna

Bingham easily winning the 1600 at 5:57. Bingham’s time was more than twenty seconds faster than the closest competitor.

Jaclyn Steppe outpaced her competitors in the 300-meter hurdles, finishing nearly four seconds faster than any other runner at 51.18 In the 100-meter hurdles, Steppe placed second with a time of 21.20.

If the individual performances weren’t enough, Effingham dominated the relays as well. The Lady Hearts took home top finishes in the 4x100, 4x200 and 4x800, narrowly missing out on a sweep in the 4x400. Mount Vernon took home top honors in the 4x400 with a time of 4:57, five seconds better than the Lady Hearts.
