As the weeks of no spring sports continues to slowly move past us, we look back once again at the wonderful track & field performances from 2019. This week we remember the Eads track teams from a year ago and offer recognition to 2019’s juniors who, as it ended up, finished their preps careers last May along with the seniors. Funny how things turn out.
Two girls, who were very successful as juniors a year ago, were slated to take the leadership role for the Eads team this year that returned nearly everyone. Kaycee Ellenberger placed at state in the 100M, 200M, 4x200M Relay, and was part of a state championship in the 4x100M Relay. She and her younger teammates were primed for perhaps a repeat performance this year. Morgyn Johnson was a strong jumper for Eads qualifying for state in the high jump and gaining a lot of points for the Eagles in the triple jump.
The Independent salutes these athletes from the Class of 2020 and wishes we all could have enjoyed watching them compete in their final year of eligibility. In honor of them, we reprint the final track & field article from 2019.
This week CHSAA chose the All-State Basketball teams for both the girls and boys and for all five divisions.
