NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - The New Rochelle High School girls’ track team came, saw and conquered, winning big at the prestigious Glenn D. Loucks Games at White Plains High School.

At the 50th anniversary of the meet - which attracted nearly 3,500 athletes from 255 schools in nine states - the squad from New Rochelle was the big winner, claiming the overall team title, as well as several individual awards.

Junior Olivia Morgan was named the meet’s most outstanding female field athlete after winning the pentathlon with 3,205 points - most in the state and third best nationally. It was the fifth best score in the 50-year history of the games. She also went on to set her personal best marks in the shot put and 100-meter hurdles.

Teammate Jeannine Currie, a senior heading to the Naval Academy Preparatory School in September also shined, finishing third in the pentathlon with 2,616 points. Kiana Stallworth was victorious in the 100-meter dash and the long jump, finishing one of her final competitions before heading to George Mason University to continue her track career on a scholarship.
