Not a single Hancock County Track and Field Meet record was set in the 2013 competition, but a plethora of marks could fall Wednesday when the Eastern Hancock, Greenfield-Central, Mt. Vernon and New Palestine boys and girls teams meet Wednesday on the Dragons’ home track for the 33rd annual local showdown.
Most of the county meet records under assault are on the girls side. Here’s a rundown (unless noted, analysis times and distances are based off official pre-meet performance list):
Record: 15.68 seconds, Corinne Zehner, NP, 2010.
Analysis: Greenfield-Central ninth-grader Maddie Wise has the top seed time (16.13 seconds) on the pre-meet performance list, but clocked in at 15.54 Saturday at the Greensburg Invitational to break her own school record.
Record: 12.40, Alexis Laska, EH, 2001.
Analysis: G-C’s Sammie McCoy has run a 12.79, but Mt. Vernon’s Olivia Coleman (13.06) is capable of pushing the Cougars’ senior.
Record: 59.00, Audrey Smoot, GC, 2005.
Analysis: Coleman (59.64), now a junior, ran a 58.00 as a freshman at the state meet. After undergoing knee surgery in November of 2012, Coleman is fully healthy again.
