Nerinx Hall High School’s duo of Peyton Chaney and Colleen Quigley claimed Kansas Relays titles in the 100 meters and 1600 meters, winning a leg of the Adidas Golden Stripes tour, allowing them a chance to claim a spot in the Dream High School 100 and Mile events at the Adidas Grand Prix Meet in New York City in June. Both will need to bring down their times to earn free trips to the Big Apple but they’re definitely capable. I sat down with them at Nerinx Hall in Webster Groves recently to discuss their seasons, careers, and possible trips to NYC. I also interviewed Collen with her father and Coach Gaylerd Quigley. They enjoy a relationship few get to experience. Chaney is a junior who runs the 100, 200, and 400 while Quigley is a senior who’s best at the 1600 and 3200. Quigley will compete for Florida State University next year, but before that she and Chaney will try their best to earn a state track and field trophy for Nerinx Hall.
