Middle School track & field hosted five schools on April 9 in a multi-school meet on the track at the Sacred Heart Outdoor Athletic Complex. Trinity, Newman, McGehee, Ursuline, and Holy Name offered Sacred Heart athletes exciting competition with plenty of "photo finishes" that had the Cardinals leaning in hard for the finish line.

Anabelle Adams '25 was the Cardinals' top female thrower out of seven girls in the shot put with a throw of 21'3". Marigny Gill '25 took third with a throw of 19'5".

In the high jump, Sophia Gomez '26 was the Cardinals' top 5th/6th grade finisher with a height of 3'10". Elaine Marie Ehrensing '24 placed first for 7th/8th grade with a height of 4'8". Bryce Couvillon '24 placed second with a height of 4'4".

The javelin is an event that the Cardinals do not get to compete in locally, so it was a great opportunity to show off their newly discovered talents.

The Cardinals began their running events with the 55-meter dash. They had a total of 56 athletes compete in this race.

The mile became more interesting than the Cardinals anticipated due to a schedule change, but it worked out well. Bryce Couvillon '24 finished in 6:18, and Leah Varisco '26 was right on her heels in 6:19. Lilah Deynoodt '26 finished with a time of 8:07, and Avery Alig '26 ran in 8:16.

The 800-yard race was pretty crowded from the start, with seven boys and girls on the track, but the Cardinals went out strong. The Cardinals' top finisher was Bryce Couvillon '24 with a time of 2:39, followed by Colette Shannon '25 in 3:05, Claire Parrish '25 in 3:06, and Cate McCammon '26 in 3:18.

The Cardinals' relay teams displayed teamwork and support. Their fastest 4 x 100 team was made up of all sixth graders. Grace Trelo '25, Bradlee Gross '25, Leah Gransberry '25, and Livy Eastman '25 ran a time of 58 seconds. It was a true photo finish at the end. The fifth grade team of Leah Varisco '26, Eileen Dugan '26, Charlotte Johnston '26, and Sophia Gomez '26 was right behind them with a time of 59.44 seconds. The speedy group at 1:02 was made up of Emily Guider '26 Christen Scott '26, Taylor Robert '25, and René Charles '26. The fifth grade team of Avery Alig '26, Audrey Finch '26, Libby Stassi '26, and Sally Irwin '26 finished first in their heat with a final push by Irwin at the finish. Their time was 1:00.87. The seventh grade 4 x 100 (Lanier Kearney '24, Katherine Benton '24, Mia Dreiling '24, and Kate Farris '24) ran a time of 55 seconds.

By the time the 4 x 200 came around, the Cardinals were short a few relay teams from other schools. Many had to leave, and some were exhausted. However, the Cardinals competed with tenacity. They stayed late, worked hard, and still managed to run great times despite being tired. Some runners ran two relays in a row. Piper Rubin '25, Natalia Mehaffie '25, Eileen Dugan '26, Claire Parrish '25, Ellie Spaulding '26, Sofia Sercovich '26, Kate Cummings '26, René Charles '26, Jane Kute '26, Colette Shannon '25, Avery Alig '26, Maddie Do '25, McLaine Schlosser '26, Bradlee Gross '25, Leah Gransberry '25, Christen Scott '26, and Kennedy Skinner '25 closed the meet with a bang.
