The Lady Purples were at two different track meets in two different states. Several of our girls qualified for the Arcadia Inv which was held in Southern California. There is an interesting fun fact about this track meet, Brittney Hansen’s dad raced on this exact track when he was in High School. The girls represented Kentucky and BHGS well. With most of the nations best in attendance the girls took full advantage and threw down some blistering fast times which caused a couple of BGHS track records to fall.
Brittney Hansen started the weekend off on the right note. Running a 5:18.22 in the One Mile run (5:16.37 1600m). Which currently ranks her #6KY.
Madisyn Peeples broke a school record in the 3200m running 10:58.83 which makes her #2 KY
Lauren Wheeler kept the speed coming running the fast One Mile run of the weekend. Running a 5:12.94 (5:11.13 1600m) making her #2KY.
Ciara Scott rounded out the One Mile run. Ciara ran 5:14.19 (5:12.37 1600m) making her #4KY.
Both Lauren and Ciara ran times that automatically qualify for the Dream Mile in May. Brittney’s time is within second of the qualifying time. Which look pretty good for her to get in to the race as well.
The last race of the trip was the Distance Medley where all four girls raced together. Lauren ran the (1200), following by Ciara (400), Brittney (800), and Madisyn the 1600. The four girls broke the BGHS school record by 8 seconds.
