and #23 in 300LH at :52.4 the following

remembered by coaches and teachers as a
"smaller, attractive girl with a great
personality and always an excellent person
-hers is a real loss to the Richwoods track
and field family--exactly the type of person
our program hopes to attract, work with, and
send off into life. "
She was also a RHS cheerleader.
Following graduation, she received a degree

Knights Step Up
May 9, 2014
The Knights stepped up their game as was
neccessary in order to be competitive for
the final MS-6 Track & Field Championship.
Unfortunately, their efforts fell short and
Notre Dame will be the final home of the
RHS' 14 to 7 advantage in team titles.
final results saw the Irish victorious
with 113 points followed by the 86 mustered
by the Knights, 55 by Peoria High and 17 by
To have had a chance to overcome PND's
seeding advantage would have
likely required a combination of events -
PND not meeting expectations, RHS exceeding
expectations, PHS and Manual providing
scoring help ... but only the Knights
surpassing seed projections came to be.
Richwoods was the only team to improve upon
its seed positions both on the track and in
the field. The Irish inproved on the track
and fell ony slightly in field while Manual
improved slightly on the track and fell
slightly in the field. However Peoria High,
upon whom the Knnights were forced to hope
for help against the Irish, unfortunately
fell short of their seeds in both venues.
The Knights were strong in the relays taking
gold in the 4x100 and 4x200 and finishing
second in the 4x400 and 4x800.
The only open event winners for RHS were
both from LaDaisha Steen-Yates in the 100
Dash and the Long Jump. Steen-Yates also
finished 2nd in the 200 Dash. Denasia was
2nd in the Shotput.
In one of the most exciting races of the
evening Lauren Schults moved closer to the
:60 barrier in being edged by PND's CeCe
Ricca in the 400.
The Knights most courageous efforts
seemingly belonged to Erin O'Malley's gutty
leg in the 4x800 where she completely closed
a 100m deficit to PHS in the evening's
opening event on the track, only to be
challenged by Tashawna Nash with her
extraordinarily difficult triple of running
a 2:31 p.r. in the 800 followed by her 2nd
Place Finish in the 300 Hurdles followed by
a near completely exhaustive effort in
battling PND head to head for the lead in
her leg of the 4x400.
The Knights earned the right to be proud of
themselves for their efforts.
May 4, 2014
has been officially confirmed that the final
Mid-State 6 Conference Meet will be held
Thursday May 8 at Richwoods' Endres Field with Manual
acting as the Host School for the Meet..
Peoria Notre Dame will be the team favorite
to secure the final Mid-State 6 title given
their recent 86-60
head to head win over RHS and their
superior positionings vis-a-vis the
opposition on the
current PJS Honor Roll listings.
continued erraticism, in the absence of the
Knights being capable of significantly
stepping up their game, it appears that the
Knights will be incapable of preventing the Irish
team from taking the MS-6 Trophy to
a permanent home in the trophy case at PND.
While both Peoria High School and Manual
posess a number of quite talented athletes
who are expected to claim significant
places, their lack of overall numbers look
likely to impair each of their opportunities
to lay claim to the overall final title.

(RHS 92 - PHS 45)
Combining the vicissitude of Illinois spring
weather with a team continuing to seek its
identity has resulted in a series of
inconsistent practices and performances. On
occasion looking superb...on occasion
bordering on clueless, the Knights continue
their efforts to put together a final surge
toward the proverbial championship season.
