After Thursday’s home track and field meet against New Albany, Seymour senior Alicia Pollert was happy to report that she had “a very good meet.”

Her momentum started in the 100-meter hurdles, where she led a 1-2 finish and set the school record with a time of 16.8 seconds.

She later cruised to a win in the 800, and her night wrapped up by running leadoff for the winning 1,600 relay team, helping the Owls win the meet 75½ to 38½.

Both of last week’s meets were canceled because of the weather, so the Seymour girls hadn’t competed since April 11 at home against Shelbyville. The Owls won that meet, but Pollert was disqualified at the start of the hurdle race.
