The Warsaw girls track team put together some record-setting performances over the weekend.
Sam Alexander led the way for the Tigers in indoor qualifying meets for the Indoor State Finals set for March 21 at Purdue University.
Standout Alexander broke her own school record in the long jump with a leap of 18-3. That performance topped her old school standard of 17 8.5 set in 2014. Alexander’s jump currently ranks her second in the state.
Alexander also teamed with Mariah Harter, Tennie Worrell and Audrey Rich to set a new school record in the 4 X 200 relay event with a time of 1:47.40. That time, which ranks eighth in the state, eclipses the old mark of 1:47.76 set in 2014.
The 4 X 400 relay team of Rich, Nicole Eckert, Worrell and Abbi Curtis clocked in at 4:11.70, which ranks them sixth in the state.
Allison Miller has the 13th fastest time in the state in the 3,200 at 11:27.69 for the Tigers. The 4 X 800 relay team of Miller, Charlene Orr, Claire Kehler and Hannah Dawson ranks 17th with a time of 10:21.14.
Other notable performances this week for coach Scott Erba’s team included a personal best effort of 5-0 in the high jump by Alexie Day. Rebecca Lemon was first in the pole vault with a personal best of 8-3. Eckert had a personal best effort in the 60 hurdles in 10.32, while Mia Beckham had a personal best in the 3,200 in 12:08.92 and Emily Bailey placed third in the shot put with a throw of 32-6.
Warsaw will compete in the Indoor State Meet next Saturday. The Tigers then open the outdoor season at Penn on March 25.
