Grace Constable is a freshman on Berrien Springs’ track and field team. She recently qualified for the state finals to be held on June 5, where she ranks seventh in 100-meter dash and eighth in the 200.

Berrien Springs’ Grace Constable may be a freshman, but she’s ready to compete with some of the best sprinters in the state and maybe even set some records along the way.

Constable is finishing up her first season on the Shamrocks’ track team. Her two main events are the 100 and 200 meter dashes, but she’s also participates in the high jump, long jump, 400-meter relay and 800-meter relay.
