Heisner, Spain named Globe prep athletes of week


Heisner, a sophomore, had an unusual week as Mount Vernon competed in both an indoor and outdoor track and field meet.

In the indoor meet hosted by Central Missouri on March 18, she placed second in the 60-meter hurdles (9.47 seconds) and third in the pole vault (10 feet, 3 inches) while competing against numerous Class 5, 4 and 3 schools.

Four days later at the Springfield Catholic Invitational, Heisner earned first places in the long jump (16-0), triple jump (35-1) and 100 hurdles (14.84, a personal best). And she won by large margins — 10 inches in the long jump, more than eight feet in the triple jump and almost two seconds in the 100 hurdles.

Heisner won four events at a meet on March 26 in Rogersville, including an 11-9 clearance in the pole vault to break her school record by nine inches.
