Saturday's prep roundup: East's Shead earns another record

Published: Saturday, April 26, 2014 6:04 p.m. CDT

ROSELLE – St. Charles East senior Jordan Shead broke her second girls track school record of the week at Saturday's Carol Koszola Classic at Lake Park.

Shead, who set the new standard in the 800 meters earlier this week, finished third in the 200, but her time of 25.59 still is the Saints' best ever.

East (106 points) was a narrow runner-up to team champ Rock Island (113), as the Notre Dame-bound Shead also won the 400 in 57.2.

"I think its just a time she's kind of falling into herself," Saints coach Tim Wolf said. "She's been getting focused, training hard and she's really kind of locked it in there."

East welcomed a handful of athletes back from injury as it braces for the stretch run, including Krista Fitzmaurice and Elizabeth Chmelik.

Chmelik's twin sister, Allison, captured the triple jump with an effort of 35 feet, 9 inches. The Saints won the 4x400 relay in 4:08.10.

"A little colder and windier than we thought it would be," Wolf said, "but we did pretty well."
