Lady Eagles unseat Plymouth at Rochester Girls Track Sectional

May 18, 2011

ROCHESTER — Worn out in the midst of a tough workout schedule, Waverly Neer set her own pace Tuesday.
That pace was good enough for two records at the Rochester Girls Track and Field Sectional as the Culver Girls Academy phenomenon blazed to record-breaking championship wins in both the 1600 and the 3200, registering respective times of 4:50.51 and 10:27.16. Not only were those times good enough to lap many of her competitors, they also easily broke the 5:02.35 and 10:57.81 records CGA alumnus and Indiana High School state distance legend Alex Banfich set in 2006 and 2008.

May 13, 2011
