Lady Cats track gets third, at 15-4A meet Tuesday

Coach Ross Hicks’s squad came up big again, getting a second straight top-3 finish as a team on Thursday. Doing so came at their home invitational on Thursday, Apr. 6.

It is a quick turnaround though as both track squads head to Texarkana for the 15-4A district championships this week.

It begins Tuesday, Apr. 11 at Liberty-Eylau’s Harris Field at 4 P.M.

Running Events

The 200 M dash was the first event in which Sulphur Springs scored points in their home invitational, as Jaicee Jasmer proved to be the first of two Lady Cats to emerge victorious in an event.

Her winning mark of 26.52 got Coach Ross Hicks’ squad 10 points. Codee Roland got sixth in the event.

Laney Hurst came in a little after a minute for fourth place and four points in the 400 M dash, but the 800 M run saw three Lady Cats get points:

  • 3rd. Abigail Williams: 2:36.87 — six points
  • 4th. Rainey Johnson: 2:38.59 — four
  • 5th. Hurst: 2:42.75 — two points

Edith Martinez got fifth in the 1600 M run. She fared better in the 3200, getting third with a time of 12:36.62, and Dylan McKinney came up sixth in the event.

Lady Cats track & field placed fourth in the 4×100 M relay. Vanessa Wayne, Roland, Jasmer and Trinity Jefferson crossed the line at 51.80 for eight points. The same team, sub Wayne for Rowan Faircloth, got second with a mark of 1:51.58. That Lady Cat relay team scored 16 for Sulphur Springs.

Another fourth finish for Coach Ross Hicks’s squad came in the 4×400 M relay. Johnson, Jolea Moore, Hurst, and Aaliyah Cheatum got eight more for the Lady Cats.

Field Events

Codee Roland proved to be the final Lady cat to emerge victorious in an event in the Sulphur Springs invitational, coming up big in long jump.

Her winning mark of just over 15′ 1/2″ got her team 10 points.

Pole vault saw Jaicee Jasmer come up shy of winning a second event Thursday, getting second place as 12′ even. Her efforts got her team eight points.

Isabelle Thesing got sixth in discus. Amerson Boles placed the same in pole vault.

Sulphur Springs cumulated 88 points as a team. Lady Cats track and field slipped a spot as a team from last week’s competition, coming up third at their home invitational.

Next up, both track teams participate in the 15-4A district championships on Tuesday, Apr. 11.

The meet gets underway in Texarkana at Liberty Eylau’s Harris Field Tuesday at 4 P.M.
