PIQUA — New Knoxville senior Andrew Mackie has a big week of practice ahead of him before heading to state in both the high jump and 400 meter dash.
“It’s two completely different parts of the body,” Mackie said after finishing his third event at the regional meet at Piqua on Saturday. “So you just have to work hard and have good stamina.”
St. Marys senior Kelly Heitkamp cleared 10 feet, eight inches and won the Division II regional championship in the girls pole vault on Saturday at Lexington.
Heitkamp, who is the school-record holder in the event, will return to the state tournament for the second straight year. In 2012, Heitkamp finished 12th a season ago with a vault of 10 feet.
St. Marys junior Kristen Dammeyer finished sixth in the girls 3200 meter run with a 12:08.72 time.
St. Marys junior Amanda Dues finished ninth in the girls 1600 meter run with a 5:36.37 time.
