Barlow girls shine at Sandy Invitational
The Barlow girls track and field team scored a big-time victory on Saturday as it finished atop the girls leaderboard at the nine-team Sandy Invitational. The Barlow sprinters lifted the Bruins to a score of 132.5 to beat out second-place Ridgeview (118).
Barlow was the class of the girls meet on the track, particularly in the relays. In the first race of the day, the 4x800, the Barlow foursome of Ashley Albelo, Kelsey Houston, Elizabeth Lewis and Olivia Johnson left the rest of the field in the dust.
Barlow also outlasted Central Catholkic and the other squads in the 4x100 relay. Whitney Waddell, Sara Turner, Renick Meyer and Kaitlyn Bethurum were challenged by Central and Hood River Valley for the first 200 meters, but edged ahead in the back half of the race to secure the win.
