The Port Isabel High Lady Tarpons track and field team took fifth place at last weekend’s Indian Nation Relays at Donna. Alex Martinez won gold in the pole vault with a vault of 9 feet 6 inches.
P.I. head coach Julie Breedlove is still trying to put together a complete team, and a key member of one of the relay teams was unable to go Saturday, so a fifth-place finish in a field made up almost entirely of Class 5A and 6A teams shows the abilities and competitive fire of these teenage athletes.
Other high-placing Lady Tarpons in individual events were; Madison Bickerton, high jump, 3rd-4-10; Brisia Gonzalez, 300-meter hurdles, 4th-52.64 sec.; Erica Mire, pole vault, tie-4th, 8-06; Ava Gomez, long jump, 4th-15-04.50; triple jump, Simone Harry, 4th, 33-08.00.
