Ready. Set. Go!
Martin Luther King College Preparatory Lady Rams track and field team is leaving its mark on the infield.
At their most recent competition, the Lady Rams track and field team placed third overall and yielded great individual success.
The track and field team coach, Danny Cannon, is beyond proud of the hard work that he has seen his team put in day in and day out at practice.
“They’re more excited now than they were at first,” said Cannon. “That’s the exciting part. They want to win.”
So, he was not surprised by their success.
“The culture is changing for MLK sports,” said Cannon.
The Lady Rams track and field team’s most recent success echos that sentiment.
Here are the results from last week’s competition:
100-meter dash: 2nd place Lameria Hampton
1’600 meter run:
1st place Annika Nixon
2nd place Kyla Tucker
4×100 meter Relay Team
3rd place: Johnyia Walker, Keriyana Hart, Quentasha McClure, Lemria Hampton
400-meter run: 3rd place Quentasha McClure
200-meter dash: 1st place Lameria Hampton
800-meter dash: 4th place Gabrielle Smith
The team’s next track meet is April 12.
