Pendleton - Kiawna Cottrell retired to the Pendleton Heights tent high above Indiana University’s track complex Friday, June 6, one exhausted young lady.
After six long jumps, two heats of the 200 meters and another race in the 400 at the IHSAA state meet, Cottrell deserved the breather. And the accolades that went along with her efforts.
Cottrell capped off a remarkable high school career by finishing second in the 400, to go along with fifth in both the long jump and 200. She eclipsed her own school records in all three events.
The results netted the Arabians 18 points in the team standings, good for a tie for 11th place.
“I was really pleased with my performances,” Cottrell said. “I thought I did what I was seeded to do. It was my last high school meet and I wanted to leave everything I had out there on the track.”
