Northridge Girls 102, Wawasee 30
Mishawaka Girls 86, Wawasee 42
The Lady Warrior tracksters hosted its final home meet of the season Tuesday night. The three-way meet, hosted by Northridge, also included Mishawaka, which is wrapping up its first season in the conference.
The Green and Gold came up short in both matchups, coming up short in the final head-to-head scoring tallies to both the Raiders and Lady Cavemen.
There were a few bright spots for Wawasee. Dylan Konieczny topped the field in high jump at 5-01 and placed second in long jump by flying 14-8.75. She was bested only by her teammate, Alissa Gill, who jumped 14-10. The Warriors also found field event success in the discus, with Emma Yoder tossing 100-06.
Points weren’t easy to come by on the oval, however, with only Bailey Mayhew finding the overall podium by finishing third in the 400.
“Overall, we had some really good performances by our girls,” said head coach Jose Lopez. ‘Hopefully we can ride this momentum to the conference meet.”
Warsaw will play host to the NLC championships on Tuesday, May 11.
