Track and field
The Stars advanced to State senior Ann Campbell in the 1600- and 3200-meter runs, senior Kennedy Bright in the 100-meter dash and alumna Giggy Reardon in the triple jump at Sectionals yesterday.

While these athletes will compete Friday and Saturday in Jefferson City, Mo., other Sectionals participants included sophomores Emma Kate Callahan and Brie Hussey in the 4×800-meter relay, seniors Anna Bauman and Brit Maguire in the 4×800 and senior Hayden Lee in the 4×800 and 3200. Bright also competed in the 200-meter dash, and Reardon participated in the 100-meter hurdles.
At Districts May 17, alumna Giggy Reardon topped STA’s triple-jump time, while senior Ann Campbell won the 1600 and 3200.
