Reed City junior caps off strong season in relays
REED CITY — Keylee Aemisegger provided valuable points for the Reed City girls track and field team this season.
This season, the Coyote junior has been in the 4x100 relay, high jump and shot put and in a random fourth event.
Her relay team, which included Emily Libey, Alison Schermerhorn and Hanna Price, was second at the regional (52.83) and competed in the Division 3 state final at Comstock Park.
“Most of the time, our 4x100, beats (the other) team by a long shot,” Aemisegger said. “We’ve been switching (the order of runners) up a lot lately. Usually I’m third leg, but we recently decided to try me in the first leg and see how that goes.”
The relay team has showed steady improvement, Aemisegger said.
She added that high jump was her second best event. Her best jump has been 4-8 and she has shown steady improvement.
“From our first meet, I only cleared 4-4,” she said. “I’ve been clearing 4-8. You just have to jump. It’s all about jumping and not jumping into the bar but just jumping straight up.”
Aemisegger was hoping for 5-2.
It’s her third year of track and Aemisegger said she improved from 2014.
A major goal was for the 4x100 relay team to beat Chippewa Hills at the Central State Activities Association Gold Division meet at Central Montcalm on May 12.
Reed City came close. The Coyotes finished second in 53.52, while Chippewa Hills was first at 52.28.
