GIRLS' TRACK SECTIONAL PREVIEW: Jeff girls want their title back



After beating a tough Hoosier Hills Conference field for its second straight conference title, Floyd Central should have little trouble winning the Corydon Sectional for the fourth straight season.

Knowing that, the Highlanders enter Tuesday’s sectional with a side goal in mind: Advance as many as they can to next Tuesday’s Bloomington North Regional.

“We want to get the best seedings possible in the regional,” Floyd coach Kyle Weigleb said. “That’s going to give us the best opportunity to qualify kids for state. Winning [on Tuesday] should make things take care of themselves.”

Floyd could get at least one athlete to the regional in every event. Perhaps the toughest will be in the hurdle events, where Madison Kaiser and Kim Foster will have to compete against a tough field, which includes last year’s state finalist Maryashly Betz of Providence.

“It will be a tough final heat with two solid Corydon girls, a girl from Crawford and [Betz],” Weigleb said. “It will be a nice finals there.”

With strong sprinters and distance runners, New Albany figures to be a solid second on Tuesday. Providence and the host Panthers could battle for third.
