For the third year in a row, the Lady Blazers have won the Shawnee Mission South relays title.
This time GEHS scored 143- the most ever at South, winning a very competitive 12 school invitational.
Due to construction issues, the meet was held at Shawnee Mission North, but the change in venue did not seem to bother the Blazers.
“The team is off to a fantastic start,” said Coach Larry Ward. “ I was real proud of the effort.”
Leading the way was Cassidy Androff, a Wichita State University commit, who took gold in the shot put and discus and scored 20 points.
Lauren Highfill and Morgan McIntire tallied 13 points apiece. Highfill took second in the 300 hurdles and fourth in the 100 meter hurdles. McIntire placed third in the 300 hurdles, fourth in the pole vault and helped the 1600 meter relay team to a third place finish.
