  • Track State Champions!

    Josh Nokes
    Another first took place last Saturday in Waco as our Boys Varsity Track Team won the 4x400 Relay and with it, the State Championship by a single team point!  The competition was intense as the top four teams were separated by a total of 5 points!

    Along with the state champion 4x400 team, the boys team also won 2nd in the 4x200 relay, picking up a valuable 18 points in the process.  Along with fantastic showings from our relay teams, we had some great individual performances as well.  Senior, Ian Gully, won the high jump competition.  Juniors, Luke and Patrick Teson, won 1st & 2nd respectively in the 400m dash.  Luke Teson also won 3rd in the 300m hurdles.  There were many more contributors to the team victory with the Lions advancing multiple athletes and events to state after their runner-up finish at the Regional meet the week before.  Every point counted in this close race!

    Our Girls Varsity Track Team also had a great state meet finishing 7th out of 26 schools who qualified athletes for the meet.  The team highlight was seeing their 4x400 relay team finish 3rd in the state!

    Congratulations, Lions!  Well done!  You can watch the season highlight video at this link:
