Abby Eisold Takes First at Indoor Pentathlon

Abby Eisold ’20 took first place in the Indoor Pentathlon, Neha Kotha ’22 took sixth, and Susanne Kowalska ’21 took eighth at the Purple Championship HS Invitational Indoor Pentathlon. The three varsity girls’ winter track members participated in 55-meter hurdles, long jump, shot put, high jump, and 800-meter run events. The meet was held in the Armory in Manhattan on Saturday, February 15, 2020.

“The event had eleven very good Pentathletes entered. It is judged by a tally of scores from each of the five events,” said Mike Bailey, winter track and field head coach. “The scoring goes up by amounts based on your time, distance, and heights. The point scales go from one point to over a thousand.”

The three athletes were not the best in any of the five individual events, but they worked hard during each event to get every point they could with every jump and throw. At the end of the high jump, the competition was in a very close and our Cougars needed to run their personal best in the final event—the 800-meter run—to place well in the final rankings.

“When the girls came up to me after the high jump and asked what they needed to do, we talked about the strategy and pace each would need to run,” said Mike. “They left with a sense of Cougar Pride and committed that they would just do it.”

As the final race started, Mike thought they went out too fast for their pace. “I didn’t want to discourage them, and just yelled encouragement as they passed me,” said Mike. “All three kept a pace that was new to each of them and they finished incredibly. It is so rewarding to see our student-athletes grow through adversity and succeed. Our girls worked extremely hard to compete against the odds and come out well!
