Junior High Track finishes strong


The District 32-3A Jr. High meet was held last Saturday, April 2nd at Tarpon Stadium.

The Lady Tarpon track teams came into the meet with high hopes as the dis­appointment of last year’s meet still hung in the air for the eighth grade girls who wanted to avenge their 12-point loss of last year to the once again fa­vored La Feria Lionettes, but in order to accomplish this feat, they would have to make up more than just 12 points.

In the end, because of their dedication and hard work, the eighth grade girls were named co-champions with La Feria by virtue of a tie; each team had 190 points. In third place was Lyford with 117, Rio Hondo had 58, Raymondville came in with 30 points and Pro­greso had eight points.

The girls were awarded medals for first through third place and ribbons for forth through sixth place. The following girls were awarded medals or rib­bons at the district meet; Sarah Turkington 3rd in the 2400 meter run and 6th in the 1600 meter run; Gabby Torres 1st in high jump, 1st in long jump, 1st in 200 meter run, 1st in 4×100 meter relay and 1st in 4×200 meter relay; Alexis Gutierrez 1st in pole vault, 1st in 100 me­ter hurdles, 1st in 4×100 meter relay, 1st in 4×200 meter relay; Mireya Al­maraz 2nd in 100 meter hurdles, 3rd in 300 meter hurdles, 2nd in the 4×400 meter relay, and 6th in pole vault; Averie Col­unga 1st in 4×100 relay, 1st in 4×200 meter relay, 2nd in 4×400 meter relay; Alejandra Lopez 2nd pole vault, 3rd in triple jump, 1st 4×100 in relay, 1st in 4×200 meter relay, 2nd in 4×400 meter relay; Dan­iela Murchison 1st in shot put and discus; Kelcie Swink 2nd in shot put and discus; Tiffany Ochoa 5th in discus; Kelani White 4th in 300 hurdles; Xer­enna Maldonado 4th in high jump.
