Five event records were broken during the 2016 Lady Guard track season. The year began with the first school record falling at our first meet of the year. Claire Smith set the record in the 3200 meter run with a time of 13:44 at the Alto Invitational. The next school record to fall was the triple jump. Julia Troxell jumped 32’ 5.5” at the East Texas Private School Championship. At the TAPPS 4A North Regional Meet, Heather McLarry broke the school record in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5:52.34. And finally, Kristen Clarke set the new school record in the 100 meter dash with a time of 12.65 seconds and the high jump school record was set by Madeline Travis who cleared 5’6”. Both records were set at the TAPPS State Track meet this past weekend. Both Kristen and Madeline were silver medalist.
The Lady Guard Track Team had an outstanding year. Congratulations to our new record holders!
