Congratulations to our girls 4 x 400-meter relay team, Jessica E. ’21, Michelle B. ’23. Giana D. ’25, and Ellie M. ’25, for being selected as our Athletes of the Week for May 3 - 9, 2021!
“These girls were fearless in their quest for a state championship. This foursome battled Admiral Ferragut, Wildwood High School, and 14 other top teams in the state to take gold in the 4 x 400-meter relay at the FHSAA meet on Friday, May 7. At the regional meet, a week earlier, Admiral Ferragut edged out Canterbury by one second. But, it was in this race that they had set a new school record of 4:00 flat in the event! The girls worked on perfecting their handoffs and fine-tuned their strategy. It paid off as Jess ran down two competitors in the last 300 meters for the win. Each member of this 4 x 400 squad was focused and determined as they created history for Canterbury School,” shared Coach Charlotte Edwards. Way to go, Cougars!
