The Lady Lobo JV Track and Field team had their district meet, the last of the season, on April 6th. The meet was held at Jersey Village High School.

Before the meet, the coaches of the team had high expectations for their students.

“Last year, the sub-varsity team placed third,” Assistant Coach Ruth Christopher said. “This year, we’re definitely gunning for the win.”

Having these hopes for the team was completely understandable, considering their performance on the first day of competition.

“We started the competition yesterday,” Christopher said. “So far, we’re in second place by half a point.”

Even members of the sub-varsity team themselves had aspirations for the district meet.

“At district, I hope to make top three in the 400-meter-dash,” sub-varsity team member Kennedy Meeks said. “If not that, I’d at least like to set a personal record.”

After the meet, the sub-varsity track team had plenty of accolades to add to the track team’s impressive record.

“I made both the top three and set a personal record like I’d hoped,” Meeks said. “Doing well at a competition is truly a feeling like no other.”

The results of the meet were as great as the goals both teammates and coaches alike set for themselves. The girls placed third overall as a team, and many members of the team received individual accolades. Jurnee Stuckey placed first in shot-put and second in discus, and Victoria Franco placed third in discus. As for the running events, Diamond Moore, Kennedy Meeks, Liliana Munoz, Sarah Dao, and the 4×400 Relay Team (Jianna Gustave, Jurnee Stuckey, Kaylee Iselt and Temi Oyibo) all placed at the district meet.
