Trojans off to 4-0 Start in FVC

The Cary-Grove girls track team is a perfect 4-0 in Fox Valley Conference dual meet action so far this season. The Trojans have defeated Crystal Lake South, Grayslake, Prairie Ridge and McHenry.

"I'm pretty happy," said Cary-Grove coach Mark Anderson. "We've posted some good relay times in the sprints. Our distance runners have been running strong and our field events are scoring the points we need from them."

Anderson cited the efforts of seniors Anne Bucalo (122-2 discus, 38-7 1/2 shot), Christine Kustra (35-10 triple jump, 16-2 long jump) and Alex McNamara (16-7 3/4 long jump), along with junior Kristin Leonhardt (5:37 in the 1,600) and sophomore Jaclyn Cunningham (12:17 in 3,200).

Cary-Grove's 800 relay team of McNamara, junior Amy Walsh, sophomore Heather Thornton and Kustra have run a 1:52.8. Senior Steph Bouwman, Leonhardt, freshman Molly MacInnes and sophomore Madeline Aufmann have gone 10:21 in the 3,200 relay, while the team of Kustra, MacInnes, Thornton and Aufmann has run 4:20.6 in the 1,600 relay.

Huntley update: Huntley coach Shawn Nordeen has plenty to be excited about through the team's first four meets this season.

"Looking back at last year's times and results, I feel we are ahead of last year already," said Nordeen. "Our relays seem stronger with some very sound leadership from Nalisa Jansky leading the way. She has taken control of these events with some very eager to learn younger runners. They have looked up to her with great respect and have performed great for their relays."

Nordeen has also seen improvements in the middle distance section. Shannon Butler is back healthy this year. Kirstyn DeSantis has been slowed by injury and is working her way back into the lineup.

"That was a large blow to our core of mid-distance runners," said Nordeen. "She was putting some great times together with her work ethic. She was reaching some of her early-season goals. Knowing her, she will bounce back for herself and her teammates when she gets healthy again."

Returning state qualifier Coryn Marzejon has also been drawing rave reviews.

"She is stronger this year already," said Nordeen. "She is ahead of last year's times and workouts. With one year under her belt in track, she has shown great eagerness to finish off where she left last year. She has been working her tail off and has really been there to help her teammates and newcomers to the team."

Liz Krol, and Courtney Wilkerson have been strong for the Red Raiders in the throwing events. Shannon Callahan has also shown improvements in the high jump (4-8/4-10), as has Krissy Bergquist in the triple jump (low 30s).

"Overall, I'm very happy with how the season has been going so far," said Nordeen. "We are still a very young group with low numbers that is finding ways to do well in our meets. We have a great number of quality leaders on this team that will step up and do just about anything to help. They will continue to get better and surprise us each time they perform. …
