A fearsome foursome has developed on the Northeast girls team as the Eagles’ Jayda Griffin, Abigail Hunt, Arianna Krcik and Kiersten Lamke and have become a winning group in the 4x200-meter and 4x400-meter relay events in addition to individually in the open 400 and open 200. Hunt won the open 400 on April 4 at Chesapeake, a day on which the team also won the 4x100 and 4x200 and placed second in the 4x400.

Griffin said the work ethic of the entire program has lifted everyone’s performance, and having good relay teams on the boys side helps as well.

“At practice, we’re pushing ourselves. We push the boys, and they push us to do our best in the races for sure,” Griffin said.

Hunt echoed coach Dyke’s mantra of everyone doing their job to ensure peak success.

“We have to have a strong bond, and know when to get the handoff and communicate and everything, so we trust each other so the handoff be good,” Hunt said. “We know that everybody do their job, and we finish strong.”
