Three Palmyra girl athletes will be competing in the Class 3 Missouri Track & Field Championships in Jefferson City this Friday and Saturday.

Emma Wittler, a junior, became the first Palmyra girls pole vaulter to reach state, and she’ll be accompanied by Lydia Althoff, a junior, in the discus, and Jansen Juette, a freshman, in the triple jump.

“This is the most events the girls have had go to state since 2014 when we were in four events,” said Coach Nicholas Koetters. “So, I am super proud of the girls and what they have done all year long.”
