ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – Time now for our Papa John’s Team of the Week. Remember, all you need to do to enter is shoot a note, here to enter. The whackier the team, the better. If your guys or gals are picked you win Papa John’s pizza and a little TV time.
Our Papa John's Team of the Week is the Eureka Girls Track and Field Team.
We're focusing in one wildcat, Hannah Long.
The junior won the class 4 state title in cross country last fall, and she's also the defending state champ in the 1600 and 800 in track and field.
On Saturday, she ran at the Aarcadia Invite in Los Angeles, an event which features some of the best high school runners in America.
Long started her track season on the right note at the Festus early bird invite running the 1600 in a time of 4 minutes and 45.48 seconds; the fastest mark in the entire country.
Her 800 time is currently ranked 6th best in the nation.
The papa john's team or in this case, athlete of the week.
