The girl’s track team competed against eighteen teams in their sectional and came up short in the end. It was difficult for some, during the meet on Wednesday night it was pouring rain and had overall tough conditions; this rain caused the meet to be finished on Thursday. Despite this, the girls competed very well and some of them were lucky enough to get personal records for their last meet. Ayanna Tommy placed fourth in the 100 meter dash and the 4×400 team placed fifth and beat their record by eight seconds. Even though they did not all make state the girls are still proud of what they accomplished.

“I think we did pretty well, there was a lot of personal records made in the past two nights,” junior Amanda Rowe said. “Although there was not many state qualifiers, everyone ran awesome especially for being in 3A which is the hardest level.”

There was one girl who came out on top, junior Jillian Everett. Everett placed first in the meet for discus and will continue to state. She will continue her track season and hopes to do well in the state meet next week.

The girls had a great season and are proud of what they accomplished as a team. The girls worked hard all season and their results showed. The girls who are not graduating cannot wait for next year.

“Overall it was a really good season,” Rowe said. “The whole team worked very hard and we accomplished a lot.”

That wraps up the girl’s track season except for Everett. Next spring the girls hope to come back strong.
