The Advertiser-Tribune

Coach: Elizabeth Crapo, second season.

2013: Sixth in the Midland Athletic League.

Returning letterwinners: Seniors Anna Willman (distance), Brittany Brookes (sprints/LJ), Kaylyn Goshe (throws). Juniors Kirsten Camp (mid-distance/LJ), Paityn Caudill (hurdles/HJ), Kaitlin Huffman (sprinter), Jenna Larick (mid-distance), Lindsay Smith (hurdles/HJ), Hannah Hahler (sprints), Jaclyn Willman (mid-distance). Sophomores Lydia Depinet (mid-distance), Jordyn Cook (throws), Alanna Hahler (throws).

Others: Senior Olivia Willman (sprints). Sophomores Morgan Coffman (sprints), Michaela Drown (sprints), Seina Adachi (sprints), Shelby Miller (sprints), Madison Shepherd (hurdles/HJ), Brette Stockmaster (throws), Ally Fitch (throws). Freshmen Serena Dulin (throws), Amber Hescht (sprints/LJ), Sydney Carr (sprints/hurdles/LJ), Skylar Rotruck (sprints/throws), Bobbie Hall (throws), Taylor Giminez (distance), Shelby Laughlin (distance), Alexis Bohrer (throws), Alex Queen (sprints/LJ), Cynthia Duston (PV/throws).

Outlook: The Tigers bring back three regional qualifiers this spring.

Anna Willman made it last year in the 3,200 run and Camp in the 800 run. After spending the postseason injured last year, Goshe looks to repeat her trip to the regional, where she qualified in 2012.

Crapo would like to see those girls make it to the quintessential stage: the state track meet.

"I definitely want state qualifiers. I'd like to at least get a relay at state and some individual runners," Crapo said. "I don't want to depend on discus (to get us there). They're all working really hard."

Discus has been the event of choice in recent years at state since Ashton Daniel made her mark in that event for the Tigers.

"We'll have strong throwers again," Crapo said of the team's strengths. "We have a lot sprinters so that should be good. We also have a lot of upperclassmen who have come out this year that have never come out."

Seneca East is probably best known for its cross country program, but outside of Willman and a couple of freshmen, the teams lacks depth in the distance department.

"We need distance runners, which is really odd for a Seneca East team," Crapo said. "We actually gained a few this week."

Crapo doesn't expect much to change in the final go-round of the MAL.

"Carey and St. Joe will be strong. Hopewell-Loudon always has a huge team and one of these years they'll push through and put it together," Crapo said. "I don't know about us at this point. I'm going to shoot for top five."
