Lady Cat Track athlete Imani Taylor finished seventh in the state of Texas in Class 5A in long jump at the State Track Meet Friday (May 11) morning at UT Austin. Taylor had her best jumps on her first and last jumps, getting 18-feet and 1 inch each time. Indications were that Taylor was jumping into a 2.6 mile per hour wind. She was only about 5 inches out of second place. Being such a competitor, Taylor was initially upset by her performance according to Lady Cat Track Coach Triston Abron. Coach Abron said she soon realized she was the seventh best in the state of Texas.
Taylor received the Forest Gregg Fighting Heart Award at the All-Sports Banquet earlier this week.
