Lavaca Senior High track team competed in their district track meet yesterday in Danville. They did not have any high school (10th-12th grade) girls compete but we had three 9th grade girls from the junior high team move up and compete in the High School district. Anna Todaro took first place in long jump with a personal best jump of 15 ft 11 in and qualified for state. Resident Press would like to congratulate and wish good luck to Anna Todaro at State. All other 9th grade girls placed in their events but did not qualify. Rylie Green missed qualifying in the 100 m hurdles and the 300 m hurdles by one place. Several of the high school boys placed in their events, but did not qualify for state.
For the high school boys Austin Daigle, Bradley Dooley, Kaw-Liga Brewer, Jake Noble, Ethan Thomas, Colton Green, Andrew White, Cazsen Winters all competed and several placed in their events but none qualified for state. Coach Reed had this to say about his team, “I enjoyed the Sr high track season with the guys we had. Bradly Dooly placed 3rd in the 2 mile and 5th in the 1600m. Bradly improved greatly throughout the season. Austin Daigle placed in the 400m and 100m and was our best sprinter throughout the year. Colton Green placed in the high jump and has improved each year. All three of these guys will be back next year. Numerous athletes have improved this season and with our junior high guys moving up next year we will continue to grow.”
