Lady Lions dominate on the track

The Lady Lions track team traveled to North Decatur for a tri-meet against North and South Decatur. Rain came through at the beginning to bring in a cold front, which drastically dropped the temperature. The Lady Lions didn’t let that cold weather freeze them out though as they dominated the meet.

First place finishes were bountiful for the Lady Lions. Out of 15 events, the Lady Lions took 12 first places. The following were all first place finishes: 4x800 relay team of Kayla Fogg, Monica Dougherty, Arielle Ordas and Brandi Adkins; 4x100 relay team of Aubrey Stomberg, Katy Newbold, Kianna Boudine and Emma Beavers; 4x400 relay of Taylor Yager, Brooke Drake, Kianna Boudine and Aubrey Stomberg; Fran Percell in the 100 hurdles; Fogg in the 1600; Yager in the 400; Stomberg in the 300 hurdles; Adkins in the 800; Boudine in the 200; Fogg in the 3200,; Hastings in the high jump; and Sammons in the shot put.

The following were all second place finishes: Stomberg in the 100 hurdles, Boudine in the 100, Dougherty in the 1600, Mekyna Hall in the 400, Beavers in the 200, Dougherty in the 3200, Sammons in the discus and Kayla Shelton in the shot put.

Third place finishes were Tiffany Nickel in the 800 and Kayla Shelton in the discus.

“The Lady Lions strong performance in their first meet was a great start to the season. As the season goes on, the Lady Lions competition will get harder and the Lady Lions hard work will show. The coaches were happy with all the performances of the ladies and excited to see where this season goes,” Coach Kendall Paris noted.
