“I am very proud of the way our athletes competed at state. We started the season off with the goal of winning the State Championship for both the boys and girls. The girls had to overcome some setbacks earlier in the year.  A few of our key athletes were dealing with some nagging injuries throughout the outdoor season.  We were able to get healthy in time for the District Meet, which helped tremendously. The girls came into the meet as heavy favorites, and they did not disappoint,” Head Track Coach Deon Minor said.  

“This year was a bit difficult and challenging for us as a team, but the girls were up to the challenge.  They put together some great performances on day one and followed them up on day two. Bayleigh Minor, Kennesha Nabors and Kristen Shell put the girls in great position day one by scoring 24 points in the field events.  The Lady Eagles were only down by one point heading into day two.”

“The boys had a great day one, Ivan Jimmy Ducksworth, Max Granville, Sean Jimmy Ducksworth, and Charlie Molloy set the tone for us. Everyone competed very well on Day 1. When Day 2 came around it was strictly business for the Eagles on the track.”

“We had one goal for the season and it was to win another STATE CHAMPIONSHIP,” Coach Minor said.  “All the athletes performed very well and competed at a very high level at the State Meet. I was very pleased and super excited for both the boys and the girls at the end of the meet.   Great job at the “OVAL OFFICE”....STATE CHAMPS (girls) & STATE RUNNER-UP (boys). I’m one proud coach!”
