SETTING THE SCENE:  One field record fell last week, and one of the relay teams is closing in on setting a new school record.  Members of the girls track and field teams are hopeful that record will fall at home this week.  After a hiatus, the Milford Invitational returns. 

A NEW SCHOOL RECORD:  Milford's Clare Cartheuser competed at the Kings Field Event Festival on Apr. 23, where the senior Eagle shattered her own school record from 2015.

Cartheuser’s throw of 127-6 was good not only for first place at the meet, but was the third new record she has set in the past two seasons at Milford.  Saturday’s new record bested her previous throw of 122-50 at the OHSAA State Track/Field Meet in 2015, where she placed tenth.

A LOOK BACK:  The Milford girls placed fourth of fourteen teams following two wet days of competition at the Anderson Invitational.  The dominance of the Eastern Cincinnati Conference was evident, as Milford finished behind Turpin, Kings and Loveland.

The 4x100 Relay of Emma Netzel, Lindsey Lawson, Andrea Armstrong, Alex Evencheck finished in first place, at 51.30, just .20 shy of breaking the existing Milford girl’s record.
