HIGH POINT, N.C.– The High Point University women’s track and field team completed their 12th Annual VertKlasse Meeting with standout performances from a myriad of Panthers. The Panthers had five student-athletes who finished first in their respective events. Zoe Geis, Sydney Horn, Lindsey Ickes, Olive Allen, and Camryn Harper were the Panthers that placed first in their respective events.
“It was a fun two days,” Coach Mike Esposito said at the conclusion of the 2021 VertKlasse Meeting. “I love how everybody from marketing, facilities, sports information, to administration and all the other coaches, everyone pitches in to run Vertklasse which is quite an operation. It was very well received by the other teams but we do it for our kids and for the sport. Performance-wise, we had quite a few PRs despite what some might say were windy conditions which is a credit to our kids. That is what I was most pleased with. We are getting some kids back in the fold on the sprints side, now we have to get the women back in the fold and start piecing this thing together as we go to conference.”
