CONWAY — Senior Morgan Seelinger scored 28 points and captured the Bryant Lady Hornets’ lone first place medal at the Conway Wampus Cat Relays Thursday night. Bryant was the fifth place team in the meet with 84 points. Cabot won the championship with 110 points. Conway was runner-up, with North Little Rock third, and Little Rock Central fourth.[more]
“The fact that we finished in fifth place at this meet, and there were four other conference schools ahead of us is a concern when you consider the conference meet next week,” said Lady Hornets head coach Danny Westbrook. “I thought as a team we were a little flat and did not compete well. We were a little short-handed with some key scorers not competing, so I think we will be able to score better at the conference meet.”
Seelinger took top honors in the triple jump with a leap of 33’6”. She also took second in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 47.9, third in the long jump (15’11”), and fifth in the 100-meter hurdles (16.6).
Jordan Chadwick scored 14 points for Bryant. She was second in the 100-meter hurdles (15.7) and third in the 200-meter dash (27.5).
Stacy Emmerling added 10 points with her fifth place finish in the 1600 meter run, sixth place in the 3200, eighth place in the 800, and was a member of the 4x800m relay that finished second.
Joining Emmerling on the relay team were Kayla Randolph, Skylar Oswalt and Stacie Wait. They finished in a time of 11:18.
Randolph was also fifth in the 800 in a time of 2:40. Oswalt finished fifth in the 3200 (12:58) and sixth in the 1600 (5:55).
Sarah Holt cleared 7-6 to take fifth in the pole vault with Karlee Porter sixth at 7-0.
Bailey Seelinger’s 1:07 earned sixth in the 400 with Kiana Thomas eighth in 1:08.
Thomas joined Brandii Robinson, Morgan Humbard and Jarira Juarez in the 400 meter relay, taking seventh in a time of 54.6.
The Lady Hornets also picked up seventh-place points from Autumn Rouse in the discus with a throw of 75 feet.
Next up for Bryant, will be the 7A Conference Championship to be held Saturday, April 24 at Scott Field in Little Rock.
