Grove’s Michaela Werner, seen here at the state track championships in May, recently won the 3200-meter relay running with the Jenks America Track Club at the USATF Outdoor Youth Championships.


Grove senior-to-be Michaela Werner has yet another title to add to her resume.

Running with the Jenks America Track Club, Werner was a member of a 3200-meter relay team that won gold in the 17-18-year old division at the USATF Youth Outdoor Championships held at Edwardsville, Ill. June 25-30.

Werner teamed with Jessie Martin, Maci Rich and Abby Hoover to win the event in a time of 9:52.68. Hoover, who will be a senior at Sapulpa in 2013-14, won the 6A state track title in the 1600 meters in May.

Werner captured the 5A state track titles in both the 1600 and the 3200 meters. It was her second consecutive state title in the 3200. She’ll be looking for her first cross country state title in the fall after finishing third last season.
