A year ago, the Vandalia girl’s track and field team was returning to Vandalia as state champs in the 4-by-400-meter relay. This weekend they will attempt to repeat as state champions.
For the second straight year, the girls 4x400 team qualified for state. The squad posted a first-place finish at last weekend’s sectionals, with a time of 4:07.976.
Although the team is returning to state, the parts won’t be the same as last year. Paige Dodson, Kayla Houston and Ashley Durbin are all back. Missing is Kristen Stunkel. In her place will be Tori Hagy.
