Red Hill's Scherer sets 1,600 mark
TOLEDO - Red Hill High School's Andie Scherer set a school record while placing third in the 1,600-meter run Friday, helping the Salukis to place sixth in the 11-team field at the Cumberland Invitational.

Scherer, a senior, posted a time of 5:50.38 to establish a new RHHS mark. The old record of 5:54.56, was set by Shelby McKinney in 2010. Oakland's Amber Meyer (5:45.28) and Marshall's Maisie Lay (5:47.03) both finished ahead of Scherer.

The Salukis' top finisher in an individual event was junior Heather Perry, who ran second in the 100-meter high hurdles in 16.9. Effingham St. Anthony's Kasey Dammerman won the race in 16.46. Perry also posted a fifth-place finish in the 300 intermediate hurdles (50.52).

RHHS freshman Jamesha Western got off a throw of 31-9 to place third in the shot put, behind Teutopolis's Alyssa Platz (33-2) and Marshall's Katie Maurer (32-1). In addition, Western placed fifth in the discus with a throw of 85-3.

The Salukis had a good showing in the relay races, placing in three of the four.

In the 400 relay, the Red Hill team of Chey Frederick, Shelby Seitzinger, Perry and Kelsi Frederick posted a time of 54,52, and placed second to Neoga, which ran 53.78.

Red Hill's foursome of Shelby Smith, Seitzinger, Frederick and Emilee Ellingsworth ran third in the 800 relay in 1:59.15, while Ellingsworth, Meredith Spitz, Scherer and Katie Liberman teamed to place fifth in the 3,200 relay (11:27).

Seitzinger notched a sixth-place finish for the Salukis, as she won the 200 in 29.0

Teutopolis won the meet with 141 points, ahead of Marshall (106), Neoga (94 1/2), Cumberland (49 1/2), Effingham St. Anthony (47), Red Hill (45), Vandalia (16 1/2), St. Elmo (16), Altamont (14), Casey (14 1/2) and Oakland (12).
