At one of the most competitive meets in State history, everything came down to the final race and the MICDS Girls Track and Field team was able to hit the podium for the fifth straight season with a fourth-place team finish. The team was led by Jhordin Galmore ’19 who was All-State four times this year again bringing her total to 16 times as an All-State Performer. Galmore will leave her legacy as the best sprinter in MICDS history and all-time leading scorer at the State Championship. In the 4×800 meter relay, the team of Palmer Mihalevich ’20, Ana Larson ’19, Ellie Gira ’22 and Athena Theranos ’20 was able to shave 20 seconds off of their best time in one of the most inspiring runs of the meet for the Rams as they finished in 3rd place. Alexis Bellamy ’21 put together a stellar final high hurdle race and earned All-State Honors finishing in 6th place. Zuri Reid ’19 qualified for State in three events. After a personal best in the long jump that had her outside the finals, she made the finals in the triple jump bouncing out to a personal best on her final jump in an MICDS uniform. She went from a tie for 8th place to 6th place in addition to clinching a valuable three points for the Rams. New to both MICDS and pole vault, Kelly Ross ’20 had already broken the school record twice this season and jumped a record-tying 13-6 in the pole vault to earn 4th place. In the High Jump, Bellamy jumped 5’3” ending up 11th after having set a school record earlier in the season. Mihalevich ran her season’s personal best of 2:21:72 in the 800-meter finishing just out of the points by three-hundredths of a second. The team race came down to the 4×400 meter and MICDS had to finish in 3rd place or better to grab a team trophy. The crew was seeded in 6th place based on times going into the meet, but Mihalevich, Gira, Theranos and Galmore were able to run a season-best time by three seconds, finishing in the second spot to secure a trophy once again. The girls earlier in the season clinched their 13th straight District Championship and also won the Sectional Championship.
