Terre Haute North looking strong going into girls track regional

TERRE HAUTE — Terre Haute North might need an off night for anyone to catch them in the girls track regional at Evansville Central.

The Patriots are as well-rounded as they’ve ever been, and two relay teams are state contenders with times ranking No. 2 in Indiana among times recorded all spring.

Terre Haute South, Northview and Sullivan have athletes among the contenders in multiple events as well.

Senior TaPring Goatee and freshman Lindsay Welker will run identical meets as the two standouts are key athletes in the 1,600 relay team that is tied with Carmel for the No. 2 time in the state at 3 minutes, 57 seconds. They also make up half the 3,200 relay team — joined by seniors Jessi Conley and Sydney Dickerson — that is second in state with a 9:17.

And the 800 might be one of the most competitive events of the evening as Goatee and Welker race Greencastle’s Colleen Weatherford.

North sophomore Keirra Porter is also the favorite in the 100 hurdles and the long jump, the latter an event she already has the school record of 18-feet, 8 inches and the former an event she’s within a tenth-of-a-second of breaking a school record.

Porter might also be inserted into that aforementioned 1,600 relay.

While Evansville Reitz is expected to be North’s top competition for a regional team title, coach Mike Dason said it’s all about setting his athletes up for a big performance at the IHSAA State Finals at Bloomington.

“We’re going down to regionals to run our best race possible,” Dason said. “Sectionals we go to compete and win. But regionals we’re looking to get inoto fast heats at state.”

North distance runner Chanli Mundy is a contender in the 1,600 and 3,200, going into the regional with the top seed time in the 3,200 and second best in the mile to Weatherford.

Dickerson (400), Rachel Gutish (pole vault) and Alyssa Turpin (shot put) are also favored in their events.

Terre Haute South senior Tasia Brewer is among the top contenders in the 300 hurdles and could also advance to state in the 100 hurdles.

Braves’ freshman sprinter DeZhame Carter is a contender in the 100-meter dash, along with North’s Summer Scank and Northview’s Leanna Knight.

Knight appears to have a solid shot at reaching state in the long jump as well.

Sullivan’s Jenni Wilkes takes one of the top seed times in the 200 into the regional, with North’s Keeliegh Stigall and South’s TaMarrah Pitt not far behind.
