After losing to City High at the girls state track meet last year, West High's Lindsey Windauer isn't taking any chances this season.
After losing to City High at the girls state track meet last year, West High's Lindsey Windauer isn't taking any chances this season. "We have to have perfect performances," the senior sprinter said. "I think we need to keep stepping it up every single meet." Windauer's focus is the 4x400-meter relay, which was first in Class 3A last season. The team of freshmen Claire Hall and Steph Mount, plus Windauer and senior Lynn Dobyns, finished in 4 minutes, 4.62 seconds at Saturday's Women of Troy Relays. "That was with two new freshmen," Windauer said. "And we ran better than we ran at Drake last year." Running has been a way of life for Windauer, whose only other sport is cross country in the fall. She'll continue running at Kansas next year. "I wanted to go there even if I didn't run," she said. "I'm going into pre-nursing." She'll join former West runner Chris Jones at Kansas, who told her not to be worried about the tough workouts in college. "Chris and the Kansas coaches say it's the same as here (at West)," she said. "They say I'll probably be one of the more prepared girls going in." Windauer also is active in the Business Professionals of America, where her global marketing skills team won a state title and qualified for the national finals in Dallas. Unfortunately, the trip is the week before the state meet, and Windauer had to decline. She's also the sports editor of the West High yearbook. Lindsey Windauer is this week's Prep Profile:
