With plans to graduate a year early, this track season at Navarre means a little more to Abigail Pantlitz, a two-time state qualifier.
“I’m really excited about the season and I’m going to work as hard as possible,” Pantlitz said. “I’m going to place at state this year.”
Pantlitz ran a 12.85 in the 100 Saturday at the Tiger Invitational at Washington, finishing second in the event. She teamed up with the Sequoia Comeger, Hailey Neely and Jennifer Seward in the 400 relay. The squad clocked in with a time of 50.05. Pantlitz was particularly pleased with that.
“Usually we start out with a 52-53, but starting off with a 50 is really good,” Pantlitz said. “We feel like we’re going to be really good this year. Our goal is to get it down to 48.”
The Raiders placed second in the girls standings with 133.83 points. Pine Forest won the title with 212.5 points.
The boys team placed fourth with 90.5 points. Gulf Breeze won the meet (137.5).
Jaylen Shropshire turned in a strong performance, pushing himself to the limit Saturday.
