You could say that Capital Area Athletic Conference Red Division runners left the competition seeing red at the Division 2 girls' state track and field finals. Three runners from three different schools combined for a total of four individual state titles and a new state record. Another CAAC Red runner placed in the top three in three different events.
St. Johns junior Karrigan Smith set a new Division 2 record when she won the 1600-meter run in 4:51.53.
Josie Yesmut of DeWitt came away with a pair of individual state titles and helped DeWitt finish in third place as a team. Yesmut won the 100-meter dash in a time of 12.33 seconds and won the 200 meter-dash in 25.0. She also teamed up with Jordan Lee, Hannah Stoll, and Madison Slater to finish in third place in the 1600-meter relay.
Haslett placed 14th as a team and crowned a champion in Allison Rich. Rich won the 100-meter hurdles in 15.30 seconds. She also placed second in the 300-meter hurdles.
Ionia finished in 13th place as a team and was led by Hailey McRoberts. McRoberts earned all-state honors in three different events. She placed second in the 400-meter dash with a time of 56.44 seconds, third in the 200-meter dash with a time of 25.68, and third in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.56.
