BELL INVITATIONAL -- 
The Lutheran West Women’s track team faced some major competition at the Rocky River Bell Invitational. This meet, held annually, hosted a total of 8 teams, including, Normandy, Bay Village, and of course, Rocky River. The meet was able to be carried out in its entirety this year – a feat that has not been accomplished since 2009 due to severe storms. The Lady Longhorns placed in 8 out of the 14 events they participated in.
 
Freshman Gabby Schultz started out the evening meet with a 4th place throw in shot put at 32’6 ½” with junior Amanda Stephens following with a 29’10” throw. Earning a 6th place finish was junior Nicole Swanson jumping the high jump at 4’6”.
 
Two more 6th place finishes were won by two relays. The 4x400 Relay team was made up of Juniors Marissa Nuti, Nicole Swanson, and Seniors Michelle Britton, and Madi Carper who ran a combined time of 4:53.67. The 4x200 Relay was the other, consisting of Freshman Marissa Turba, Junior Marissa Nuti, and Seniors Madi Carper and Becca Coyne and a time of 1:56.97.
 
Coming in 7th, were the 4x800 Relay at 11:16.21 (Freshman Katie Snable, Sophomore Olivia Vasiloff, Junior Marissa Nuti, and Senior Michelle Britton) and the 4x100 Relay team at 58.79 (Freshmen Marissa Turba, Alex Mercado, Kiersten Kemmet, and Junior Alison Henry). Senior Becca Coyne also took two 8th place finishes of her own in the 100 and 300 Hurdles, running a 17.46 and a 51.67, respectively.
