NTL TRACK & FIELD: NEB HAS ANOTHER STRONG SEASON IN 2024 (2024-06-01)

Northeast Bradford track and field had another strong season, highlighted by Gracelyn Laudermilch earning a state medal in the 1600.

“I think we've had a pretty amazing season,” said coach Sandy Morris. “We've certainly added some new talent to the roster, and we watched some of our veteran's hit some amazing times and distances. I wish I could mention each kid because we truly had such a great group of hard-working athletes, and I am so proud of all of them.”


On the girls’ side they continued to perform well as a team, with high finishes at the Windsor Invitational and NTL Championships.


“Lillie Maynard was just incredible,” Morris said. “She never backed down from a challenge. She could chase almost anyone down, and she set some incredible PR's. She was also willing to step up and try anything that we asked.  Emma Neuber certainly was a team leader. She qualified for districts in all three throwing events, and even though she wasn't seeded to medal, she did so in two of the three events. She was an inspiration to so many of the other girls. And of course, Gracelyn Laudermilch, was a force to reckon with. Not only did girls on our team seek advice from her, girls from other teams looked to her as a role model.”


Laudermilch was a district champion in the 3200 for the second year in a row, while earning four district medals, including a state berth in the 800. The 4x800 relay of Laudermilch, Maynard, Anaiah Kolesar, and Lilah Hughes also medaled at districts.


“On the boy’s side, we had so much talent,” Morris said. “The number of guy's that dropped times from the beginning of the season to the end is just incredible. Ryan Jones, Brody Bennett, Creed Dewing, Aidan Kapr, Brayden Miller - our distance guys - were certainly dominant when they set foot on the track. And with only Aidan graduating, I am so excited to see what next year holds. In the field, Tyler Russell and Lex Cragle made major improvements in their distances in the throws, and their enthusiasm for fixing their technique is contagious.”


Dewing qualified for states in the 1600 and just missed doing so in the 800. Their 4x800 relay also medaled at districts.


“None of this would be possible if it wasn't for my amazing coaches - Lydia Werner and Dillon Lockwood,” Morris said. “They have so much knowledge and experience, and they are so good with the kids. I am blessed to be able to work with them. At Northeast, we certainly are #PantherProud.”    


Both teams return many of their top individuals, especially in the relays, as they look to another strong 2025 season.
