Also 4 of our own qualified for the LHSAA 5A State Championships to be held Saturday, May 5th at LSU in Baton Rouge.

It was his 2nd time under 2 minutes running 1:58.10. Another junior Allen England also PRd for the second straight week. Allen ran 4:26.95 in the 1600 placing 2nd. Sophomore Austin Mikovich PRd as well for the second week in a row running 4:31.65, placing 3rd. Sophomore Jonnai Jones had a very productive day as she placed 3rd in the high jump (5-2) and also PRd in the shot put (34-2) just barely missing out on qualifying in the shot put. Other noteworthy PRs include two freshmen. Lillie England ran 2:37.15 in the 800m and Jonathan Plaza tossed the Javelin 139' 11.5" earning a spot in the finals.
