Week of February 19th This week brought us to week #6 and our 4th meet of the indoor season, where we traveled to Glenbard South for a Quad meet with Glenbard South, Chicago Speer Academy, and Riverside Brookfield. The girls are feeling comfortable with our routines and working hard each and every day. Due to the order of events, we had to get creative on the distance side of things because most of our distance events were all jumbled together since running events began with the 55m dash and the 55m hurdles, but the team persevered and we had 7 individual season best performances this week, and placed 1st overall. The injury train also hit us this week and we did not compete with our full team. I am very proud of this family we are becoming, many girls stepped up to fill in for relay spots or open events that they were not used to. This was also our first meet with pole vault as a scored event. Next week we gear up for our second home Hornet Quad on Wednesday 2/28. Some top finishers for the night were: (*) - Denotes Season best performance
Week of February 12th This was definitely a hard week for Hinsdale South and our girls track team. We are now in week #5 of our season, and after mourning the loss of a beloved faculty member at Hinsdale South, we also had to focus on our first invite of the 2024 season. The girls pulled together and worked hard each day. Unfortunately, injuries and illness also hit our team hard this week. On Saturday, February 17th, we competed at the seven team invitational at Willowbrook. Without our full team in attendance, we still had great success and had 14 individual season bests performances and placed 3rd on the Varsity level. It was a great day for our Lady Hornets!

Overall, we placed first with 75 points, Addison Trail was 2nd with 66 points, Fenton 3rd with 44 points and Trinity 4th with 26 points. We had 15 individual or relay improvements from our home meet last weekend.

Week of January 29th The week started as our 3rd official week of practice and our — first home indoor meet in two years. It was nice to host again, although also very hectic. We have a very young team, and still have athletes that have not been able to join yet due to finishing up their winter seasons. Many things to be proud of and even more good things to come.
