NEW ROCHELLE, NY — The NRHS girls’ track team won the overall girls’ team title at the Glenn D. Loucks Games at White Plains High School last week. Several athletes also won their individual events.

It was the 50th anniversary of the prestigious meet which attracted 3,300 athletes from 255 schools. More than 180 teams from nine states participated.

Olivia Morgan, a junior, was named the meet’s most outstanding female field athlete. She won the pentathlon with a total of 3,205 points. Her score was the highest among New York girls this season and the third best nationally this spring.  It was the fifth best all-time at the Loucks Games. 

Morgan also set personal-best marks in the shot put (32′ 4 1/4″) and the 100 meter hurdles (15.12 seconds). 

Her teammate, Jeanneney Currie, came in third in the pentathlon with 2,616 points. Currie, a senior, is headed to the Naval Academy Preparatory School in September. Kiana Stallworth won the 100-meter dash (12.61) in the pouring rain Saturday and the long jump on Friday with a distance of 19′ 3 1/4″.  Stallworth is heading to George Mason University in the fall on a track scholarship.
