Tigers track takes distance events

FARMER’S KORNER – Summit High School sisters Whitney and Sierra Anderson led the Tigers track and field Wednesday at the Englewood Quad by each winning events.

Whitney led the 3,200 meter relay crew of Madelaine Chld, Kara Springer and Kara Carosa to first with a time of 11 minutes, 6 seconds, while Sierra took the 3,200 in 12:34.7.

Summit finished fourth in the event, but was outnumbered by the bigger Elizabeth, Englewood and Denver Christian crews. By having less numbers, the team was unable to score as many points.

“We’re getting better,” coach Rob Royer said. “We don’t have the facilities to practice some of the events.”

Whitney also won the 1,600 in a time of 5:29.2. Betsy Jasdon finished second in the 100 hurdles, while Amy Secor crossed in second in the 400.

In the boys event, Mike Holloway led the Tigers to second in the discus. John Koop placed third in the shot put, while Charles Koenig took third in the high jump.

Summit track heads to the Liberty Invite Saturday at 9 a.m. in Colorado Springs.

Tennis slips past Englewood

That’s when Manton and Lee won, 7-5, 6-7 (12-10), 6-4, to give Summit the win.

“It was really quite amazing,” head coach Rae Anderson said. “I never dreamed they’d be able to dig that deep.”
