Hamilton Heights girls track and field head coach Todd Jones will be counting on three returning regional qualifiers from last year as this season approaches.
The Huskies had two relay teams qualify for regionals last spring: the 4x100-meter relay team and the 4x400 team. The 4x100 team set a school record.
From that school-record-setting team returns senior Macey Policka and junior Lily McCormick. Policka will run hurdles and sprints in addition to her relay work. McCormick will also participate in the long jump.
Policka was also a member of the 4x400 regional team along with returning sophomore Abby Christiansen. Christiansen will lead the Husky distance runners in addition to running relays this season.
Jones noted a number of other Husky athletes looking to have productive seasons.
Junior Tiffany Williams will high jump and run relays. Bailey Haworth will pole vault and run hurdles. Sophomore Lauryn Wiley will lead the Husky throwers.
Jones also has high hopes for a trio of newcomers.
"Three freshmen will make a big impact this track season," Jones said. "Freshman Chloe Henderson comes off a cross country regional-qualifying season this fall and will be a great addition to Husky distance. Freshmen Markaela Pugh and Whitney King will add a one-two punch to our sprint program."
