Runners ready for big indoor season

The Michigan State indoor track and field’s intra-squad scrimmage certainly had a local feel this past Friday.

Several former area athletes participated in the meet, highlighted by an impressive showing from junior sprinter and Lakeview graduate Erica Mann.

Mann, the MHSAA Division 2 record-holder in the 100-meter dash, finished the 60-meter dash in a blazing time of 7.49 seconds.

“I am certainly pleased with her time tonight,” MSU Director of Track and Field Walt Drenth told msuspartans.com. “Erica is a competitor and we need her to do well. Her mark is certainly good this early in the season.”

Mann will be joined on the women’s squad this season by freshman sprinter Amelia Bannister (Albion), junior pole vaulter Ashley Smith (Marshall), redshirt senior distance runners and twin sisters Diane and Jennifer Hamilton (Lakeview) and freshman distance runner Paige Winne (Gull Lake).
