Girls track: Kaylee Brotherton leads Law to twin wins

Led by freshman Kaylee Brotherton’s double win in the 800- and 3200-meters, the Jonathan Law girls track and field team collected a pair of wins Wednesday, beating Career 112-33 and Branford 99.5-54.5.

The victories give Law an 8-5 record in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year for coach Linwood Schulte’s team.

Making Brotherton’s double-win even more significant was her 2:31 victory in the 800 qualified her for the Class MM state meet. She came back with a 13:13 effort to win the two mile.

Also improving a state qualifying time was junior Grace Wootton, who ran the 400 meters in 64.6, good enough for second against Branford and third vs. Career.

Samara Thacker aided Law’s cause with wins in the 100 (12.7) and 200 (26.9).

Other athletes who collected victories against both Career and Branford were Liv Kowalski (javelin), Rhea Grant (triple jump), Hanna Broderick (high jump), Shawna Winters (discus,  Jillian Hall (shot put) and the 3,200-meter relay.
