KENDALLVILLE — Columbia City’s girls track team won the East Noble Relays for the sixth year in a row on Saturday.
The Lady Eagles won the invitational by a close 15 points.
“It was a close meet the entire day,” Columbia City Head Coach Bob Fahl said. “It came down the the last race. It was a great display of effort by so many young ladies.”
The team was led by Kalisha Goree, who was named the John Reed Relays MVP.
Goree won the long jump and 100-meter hurdles, and placed fourth in the high jump, behind teammate Carlee Hearld who won the event.
Hearld, who went to the state finals in high jump last year, hadn’t jumped competitively this season due to injury.
“It was great to have Carlee back at high jump,” Fahl said.
Samantha Roush took first in the John Reed Mile (1,600-meter run).
“Sam showed everyone what a fantastic athelte and competitor she is,” Fahl said.
