To truly appreciate her skills and dedication to track and field, a person would have to look back at the hundreds of girls athletes who have competed at KGHS.

Lindsey Armentrout placed fourth in the pole vault with a vault of 10 feet, a new school record. Armentrout’s sister Haley also recorded a new school record in the 3,200-meters (11:44.22).
