Lorie CashdollarEDWARDSVILLE – Edwardsville's girls track team had quite a bit of success Friday at their own Edwardsville Tiger Invitational meet at the Winston Brown complex, helping them take third place in the 12-team meet.

The trio of Abby Schrobilgen, Hannah Stuart and Melissa Spencer swept the top three places in the 3,200 meters, while Abby Korak and Kaitlyn Singh went 1-2 in the 1,600 meters and Lorie Cashdollar took the 800 meters as the Tigers scored 102 points to finish third in Friday's meet, behind first-place Homewood-Flossmoor of suburban Chicago (115 points) and O'Fallon (110.5 points); Belleville West and East rounded out the top five with 99 and 93 points respectively, with Triad taking sixth with 70.5 points, Granite City taking ninth with 41 points and Alton finishing 12th with 12 points; the Redbirds were resting their regulars, who had run in a meet the day before in Alton and will be taking part in Tuesday's large-school division of the Madison County Championship in Highland.

“I was very happy,” said Tiger coach Camilla Eberlin. “We had a big PR (personal record) from Quianna Johnson in the shot put (a toss of 38-1 for fifth place in the event); I think a couple of my jumpers PRed – they're younger, so if they're getting that PR, that's what we're looking for.”

To see the 1-2-3 sweep in the 3200 was “very cool”, according to Eberlin. “When we set this meet up, we changed it, obviously, from last year – this was a Wednesday meet and it was a relay meet; we changed it this year to an invite and we said, 'you know, we're going to do something a little bit different to get some teams and stuff'. It was nice to see the three girls (Schrobilgen, Stuart and Spencer) hold strong the whole time.

“They went out and commanded it and they held the race; that was good, the same way with Abby and Kaitlyn (in the 1,600); they looked really strong and really good finishing with that.”

The format change prompted several teams to take part, including Homewood-Flossmoor, Urbana and Bloomington. “Getting them to come down and getting Freeburg to come up, it's nice to throw those in to our mix of conference schools. Our conference is great; we support each other's meets a lot, but it's nice to throw those extra teams in there.”

Eberlin overall, was happy with the performances the Tigers had on the day. “I was very happy; the girls did well to come out third,” Eberlin said. “It was a good finish.”

Other top EHS performances on the day included a 102-9 toss in the discus throw from Haley Sparks, good for 10th in the event; a second in the 4x800 relay in 10:02.80 from Elise Krone, Kaitlyn Loyet, Maddie Miller and Jaydi Swanson; a third in the freshman-sophomore 4x100 relay from Daija Treadway, Taylor Scott, Jadynn Levels and Ivy Moss in 55.53 seconds; and a second in the 4x400 relay from Cashdollar, Miller, Rachel Kubicek and Swanson in 4:09.45.

Triad's top performances came from Kelly Pottorff with seconds in the discus throw (122-1) and shot put (39-11); a second from Denise D'Antonio in the triple jump (34-3); a fourth in the 4x800 relay from Haley Jackson, Alyssa Kolwalski, Madi Walter and Samantha Kilzer in 10:36.27; and a first in the freshman-sophomore 4x100 relay from Elizabeth Jones-Smith, Megan Meyer, Savannah Viviano and Sydney Harloin in 53.35 seconds.
