FHSAA 1A State Meet Girls Recap

FHSSAA 1A Girls Team Champions
Cambridge Christian 70 Points

It is rare to see a distance squad win a state track team title, but is rare to find a distance squad as talented and loaded with talent as the Cambridge Christian girls who scored 70 points from 4 distance events in the 4x800 meter relay (10 pts), 1600 meter run (27 points), 800 meter run (15 points), and 3200 meter run (18 points).

After kicking off their day repeating as the 4x800 meter relay champions in 9:32, their two national caliber seniors in 1600 and 800 meter champion Mary Ellen Eudaly and 3200 meter champion Caroline Lehman led the way individually scoring 20 points and 18 points respectively individually, while Madeleine Gear (1600/3200) and Eliana Black (1600/800) also chipped with a pair of All-State podium finishes. 

Chaminade-Madonna (2nd, 43 pts) with their strong crew of sprints, hurdlers, and middle distance runners were able to get a late 10 points from their runaway 4x400 meter relay victory to push just ahead of Maclay School (3rd, 42 pts) by one point to secure the state runner-up trophy. Maclay had gained points early out of the field events including 1-2 finish in the girls pole vault from their freshman Elizabeth Dowdy.
