Moore 10th in 1,600 at girls track state
BLOOMINGTON — Northwestern sophomore Hannah Moore took 10th place in the 1,600-meter run for the best showing of the three KT-area athletes who competed in the IHSAA Girls Track and Field State Finals on Friday at IU’s Robert C. Haugh Complex.
Moore clocked 5:05.45 in the 1,600. Her 10th-place finish was just one place outside of a spot on the podium.
Moore also ran in the 800. She finished 23rd in a time of 2:22.62.
Lewis Cass junior Liberty Scott and Tipton senior Ceah Campbell also competed in the meet. Scott took 15th place in the 100 hurdles with a time of :15.04, which matched her school record, and 19th place in the 300 hurdles in :46.99. Campbell was 28th in the long jump with a leap of 15-0.75.
Led by Ramiah Elliott, North Central won the team title. Elliott won the 100, 200 and 400 dashes and anchored the winning 4×400 relay. She is the first athlete, girl or boy, to win all four in a single state meet.
Trine, Coan, Keene are SCAI all-state
Led by Kokomo senior Karley Trine, Howard County is well represented on the Softball Coaches Association of Indiana’s all-state and all-star teams.
For all-state, the SCAI had a first, second and third team for 4A and 3A schools and the same for 2A and 1A schools. Each of the groupings had a maximum of five players from each of the five districts for a maximum of 25 players.
For 4A/3A all-state, Trine made the first team — and is the District 2 nominee for Indiana Miss Softball. The Trine University recruit batted .558 with 22 extra-base hits, 29 RBI and 30 runs over 25 games.
In addition, Trine made the 21-player North team for the annual North-South senior all-star series. The showcase is set for June 24-25 at Indiana University.
For 2A/1A all-state, Eastern juniors Macy Coan and Cassidy Keene made the first team and second team, respectively. Coan compiled a 19-6 pitching record with a 1.24 ERA and 275 strikeouts in 152.1 innings. At the plate, Coan batted .351. Keene batted .439 with 20 extra-base hits (including seven home runs), 29 RBI and 30 runs over 26 games.
Coan and Keene are repeat all-state picks. They made the third team in 2021.
