Troy girls track dominates MVL for 12th straight conference title


TROY — The more things change, the more they stay the same.

The Troy girls track and field team continued their domination Thursday night, winning a third straight MVL and 12th straight track conference title overall.

Kurt Snyder’s squad easily outdistanced the competition again, winning with 177 points, while Tippecanoe was second with 142. Piqua finished ninth with 19 points.

“The crucial part of the meet was the 800, 200 and 3,200,” Snyder said. “Tipp was closing the score and Kiley Kitta Fiona Battle ran personal best times to double the score. That was followed with Leah Harnish and Ava McCoy going 1-2 in the 200 and getting 18 huge points.

“Then was the race of the night. Millie (Peltier) ran from behind and won the 3,200 after already running the 1,600. Millie and Ashley Kyle, who finished fourth both dropped 30 seconds from their all-time best 3,200. Those three events sealed the meet for our 12th in a row.

“I am extremely proud off all the girls and coaches who have worked so hard to win this title.”
