STATE TRACK AND FIELD PREVIEW: New Albany’s Reeves a serious state contender Saturday

Henryville thrower Uhl is top area girls’ seed

(Continued)

BLOOMINGTON —

 

GIRLS

As has been the case the past couple of years, the local girls to watch are in the throwing events at Saturday’s finals.

Henryville’s Natalie Uhl is the top-ranked area athlete heading into the finals. The future Western Kentucky Hilltopper is the fourth seed in the discus, less than 8 feet behind favorite and defending state champion Adrianna Brown of Lawrence Central. Uhl finished 12th a year ago as a junior.

Borden’s Carson Casey is seeded 18th in the event and Charlestown’s Megan Brooks is 20th.

Brooks — last year’s News and Tribune Track Athlete of the Year — is the sixth seed in the shot put. She finished 11th in the event a year ago. Martinsville senior Liz Iversen is the top seed and the heavy favorite to defend her 2013 title.

The only other area top-10 seed is Floyd Central senior pole vaulter Rachael Kavgazoff. Kavgazoff enters the state finals with a regional clearance of 11-6, a foot behind Angola front-runner Kennedy Trine.

New Albany’s Jayla Bethel will compete in four events. She’s seeded 24th in the 100 and 25th in the 200. Her best shot at a top-10 result is in the 400, where the Bulldogs are seeded 11th. The school-record breaking squad also includes Courtney Palmer, Aaliyah Bell and Jasmine Sims.
