BELLAIRE — The St. John Central Academy track team continues to make strides on the track and in terms of growing its program.

Head coach Jamie Hammond returns for her second full season at the helm and has a roster of four girls and one boy.

“I am extremely proud of this team. They work so hard and are ready to start the season,” Hammond said. “Being a small school, numbers are a big deal. But I know this team is ready to compete. The coaching staff I have around me makes my job as head coach a lot easier. We have some great competitions coming

up and we are the most excited about competing in Morgantown. We are small in numbers, but this team has a lot of heart and gives it their all every day.”

The girls are sophomore Virginia Rohall, who will take part in the hurdles and is delving into the pole vault for the first time.

Senior Kailiyah Ludolph is set to compete in both the shot put and discus throws.

Senior Alchamy Toth will be entered in the sprints, focusing on the 200 and 400.

Sophomore Nevada Lucas will also be a sprinter in the 200 and 400 and enter into the long jump.

The lone boy on the squad is junior Austin Jarrett. He will compete in the two throwing events.

Lucas’ coaching staff includes: Barrett Seifer, Erika Logston and Danielle Stewart.
