Hannibal girls track team receives boost in athleticism

by Rob Tetro

Hannibal girls varsity track And field coach Sue Friedrich suggests that her team’s goals for the season can be found in three areas of the sport: individual effort, focus, and attitude.

“The girls have the goal of doing their personal best, being focused and staying positive.” Friedrich said.

With only five athletes returning from last year’s team, the Lady Warriors lack experience.

Returning to the team are Kristen D’Angelo, Micheala Sheldon, Sierra Ingersoll, Reagan Rusaw, and Gabby Griffin.

However, Hannibal will be assisted by the addition of numerous athletes who have excelled in the other sports they have taken part in.

Joining the Lady Warriors this season are Taylor Sorell, Devin Sorell, Maddy Mikalsen, Melanie Licatese, and Karolina Severova.

The natural abilities that the newer athletes bring to the table will help her team to make up for what they lack in experience, Friedrich said.
