Eagles enter break on high note

The Zionsville girls’ track team took care of business Tuesday, March 27, as they defeated Perry Meridian 82-50.

It was a standard outing for the Eagles who faced an unfamiliar foe in Perry Meridian. The Falcons are not normally on the track team’s schedule, but according to Zionsville coach Liz Sackers, it was a perfect meet to enter spring break on.

“In the areas they had strength, they were a powerhouse,” Sackers said, singling out their 400-meter runner. “They just didn’t have enough to support the relays.”

The 400-meter race was one of the few races the Eagles did not take. They won the 800, 1600 and 3200 meter races thanks to sophomore Becca Uebele (2:29.1), senior Randi Ulmer (5:32) and sophomore Courtney Sampson (12:20.42) respectively.

“We looked great,” Sackers said. “Not necessarily personal bests but we had a lot of season bests.”

Senior Mariah Davis won the long jump with a 16’9 and the 200-meter race with a time of 26.4 seconds. Juniors Alisa Stachler (8’9), Becca Sheehan (8’6) and Sarah Wilson (8’0) finished first, second and third in the pole vault.

The relay teams were just as impressive. Both the 4x100 (50.9) and 4x800 (10:13) squads won and continued to build upon the success they have had early in the season.

“They’re just continuing to pull in good times, continuing to get better,” Sackers said. “That’s going to hopefully get us pretty far once we get into the state competitions (and) hopefully, get us through to regionals.”

The next task for the Eagles is spring break. Including the week off, they won’t have another meet until Tuesday, April 10.

Sackers is expecting the majority of her team to be away, but expects all of them to stay in shape. In fact, each runner will have specific workouts drawn up by the coaches that they are expected to complete.

For the runners who are around during the break, there will be field day events. Some girls who are already in great shape and battling through some aches and pains will use the break to heal.
