Sentinels need rookies to step up

TICONDEROGA - Ticonderoga will rely on a combination of experience and youth this girls track season.

The Sentinels return eight athletes in 2010, but will need contributions from 13 rookies to succeed.

"Hopefully our new and first-year athletes will develop quickly," Coach Walter Thorne said. "That will determine how well we do this season. We are encouraged the team has balance and just needs experience."

Back in the fold for Ti are throwers Delaney Bush, Kalene Gauger, Kristion Gibbs and Abigail Gurney; distance runner Brittany Holt; and sprinter/jumpers Tabitha Taylor, Courtney Shaner and Megan Moser.

Distance could develop into a strength for Ticonderoga. Joining Holt will be rookies Alaina Bevilacqua, Becky Barber, Markie teRiele and Hannah Herbst. Last fall that group brought Ti within five points of the section cross country championship.

The Sentinels have a bevy of new sprinters and jumpers this spring. The roster includes Alexis Bezon, Miranda Davis, Grace Ginn, Natasha Grey, Kate Mercer, Jamie Patchett, Sara teRiele and Nicole Trudeau.

Kaley Manning joins the team as a thrower.

Assisting Thorne with the coaching duties are Jay Wells in the distance events, Phil Knellor in the throws, Ellie Berube in the sprints and Rock Merrill in the jumps.
