Addie Pendergast Displays Elite-Level Ability at State Track
Sheridan track star Addie Pendergast seems to be in a league of her own and that kind of success started as a freshman at Tongue River. Back in 2021, she won the 2A state championship in the 100-meter dash, the 400, and the 800-meter run. Plus she ran the and she ran the anchor leg on the Eagles 1600 medley relay team that took first.
She moved over to Sheridan for the 2022 season but missed the State Track Meet due to transfer rules. But in 2023, everybody knew that Pendergast had returned to Casper for State and had a sensational meet. She ran 54.62 in the 400 meters to break one of the longer-standing overall records in Wyoming high school track and field. The previous record was held by Shannelle Porter of Cheyenne East set back in 1990.
Pendergast also won the 4A state championship in the 100 meters in 12.03 and the 200 in 25.19. Earlier this season, she ran a time in the 200 that exceeded the existing state record in the 200 but state records can only be broken at the state meet. Pendergast by the way also took 2nd at the 2023 state meet in the 300 hurdles which was another example of her versatility.
We had a chance to chat with her in Casper at the state meet about her remarkable accomplishments and the road ahead.
