OLIVIA, KAYLA PETERS COMBINE FOR 5 MEDALS
WICHITA – The work was done by two underclassman names Peters for the Elyria Christian girls track/field team as they finished 15th at the State Class 1A Track/Field Meet in Wichita on Saturday.
Both Olivia Peters, a junior, and Kayla Peters, just a freshman, combined to win five medals for the Lady Eagles with Olivia scoring three fifth place finishes in the 100, 200, and 400 meters while Kayla placed fifth in the high jump and sixth in the 1,600 meters.
It was all youth for the Lady Eagles as the entire competing group will return next season with both the Peters joining freshman Macy Reiff and junior Ashley Koehn in running the 4×400 meter relay while juniors Megan Koehn and Olivia Clark joined Ashley Koehn and Reiff to run the 4×800 meter relay event. Also, sophomore Ryland Hawkinson threw the javelin.
