The C.E. Byrd indoor track team had several great performances this past weekend at the LSU High School Qualifier meet in Baton Rouge. LaDann Thomas (soph), Grace Loftin (jr), Kayla Harrison (frosh), Aleceya Harrison (soph), Christian Devers (jr), Claire White (frosh), and Kyah Loyd (sr) all ran personal best times. Kyah Loyd continued her impressive start to the indoor season as she retained her Louisiana #1 ranking in her two events, the 60m dash and the 60m hurdles. She won the hurdles race by a big margin and 8 minutes later defeated the reigning 60m state champ from the last two years in school record form. Her time of 7.62 is a PR and solidified her LA#1 ranking. That time also places Loyd as LA#7 on the 60m dash All-Time list.
