IHSAA Girls Track & Field State Championship Recap

Girls State Recap: Warren Cental, Hadley Lucas, Nicki Southerland Impress

By Jack Sells

Warren Central dominated the sprints and jumps at the IHSAA State Finals, finishing first in the team race with 57.5 points. It was the most points a team had scored since North Central (Ind.) in 2019. The Warriors were able to accomplish this feat with only four girls competing: Jila Vaden, Laila Smith, Kira Smith, and Samaya Smith.

Bloomington North had a more balanced effort to take second place, scoring 41 points across the hurdles, throws, long jump, and 800-meter race.

Hamilton Southeastern and Carroll (Fort Wayne) finished in third and fourth with 29 and 26, while Brownsburg and Carmel tied for fifth place with 24 points.
