As the Coach to the GTRA Lady Titans Track Team (Chris Myers) and a proud member of Titan Nation, I wish to make the following known: Last Thursday at the District Track meet, the GTRA Lady Titan Track Team had a record setting night! First of all, the team scored 60 points! That is more than any GTRA Lady's Track Team has scored at any track meet by 7 points, let alone at State Qualifying. Numerous athletes played a role in this endeavor. We received points from Kendall Umsheid in the 100 M Hurdles, Madisen Fay in the 800 M (with her fastest time ever by 6 seconds), Gabby Conlon in the 800 M and 400 M, Macy Alderson in the 200 M, Myla Murphy in the 100 M, 200 M and 400 M, as well as Drea McKean-Riparetti in the High Jump and Macy Alderson, Drea McKean-Riparetti, Lilly Thompson and Myla Murphy in the 4 X 200 M relay. Out of these efforts, we qualified 5 events for the State Track Meet with all 5 having an excellent chance at getting a medal! This total number of events qualifying is a GTRA record as well! We qualified the 4X200 as stated above with alternates being Natalie Swedin and Kendall Umsheid. Myla Murphy qualified in the 100 M, 200 M, 400 M as well as Drea McKean-Riparetti in the High Jump. Their work to place and medal at State begins on Thursday morning this week and continues through Saturday. I am extremely proud to coach these young athletes! They are some of the hardest working athletes I have ever had a chance to coach.
