On Saturday, March 2, the Lady Vikings indoor track team competed in the OATCCC State Championship meet. The 4x200m relay team consisting of seniors Mikeya Cook-Howard, Maritza Strong, Jayla Currie, and Junior Voni Jones finished 5th in the State with a time of 1:50.33.
Coach Celeste Felder ’00 was proud of the team’s performance.
“After being disqualified at this meet last year, this was a huge accomplishment for these young ladies,” Coach Felder says.
The team will now turn its attention to preparing for the outdoor season.
“They have worked hard to be where they are at, but they know there is more work to be done in order to bring a State Championship home this spring,” says Coach Felder.
Both the boys and girls track teams began their first day of practice on Monday, March 4.
