Record breaker

Switzerland County High School senior Leah Anders broke the school record for the 3,200-meter run on Saturday, March 23rd, when she participated in the Hoosier State Relays held at Indiana University. Overall, Anders finished 23rd in a time of 12:02.23; which broke the record that was previously held by Whitley Schirmer by nine seconds. “It is tremendous to see hard work pay off, and both Leah and her distance coach Kris Sandlin, have put a tremendous amount into her training to get to this point,” head Pacer track coach Adam Pietrykowski said. “I am happy to have one more season to watch one of the most deserving people I know keep doing incredible things on the track.” This photo was taken during last year’s track season.
