On your mark…..
More hearty congratulations to our Golden Triangle tracksters for their strong showing at last weekend’s 106th UIL state track and field championships.
Nine of the 34 prep track events (6 boys and 3 girls events) produced the season’s fastest times or the longest distances.
Special recognition goes out to the boys teams from Port Arthur Memorial and Silsbee. The Titans placed second in the 5A team standings while the Titans finished third in 4A.
Here come the medals …..
We have gold medal winners from Port Arthur Memorial boys teams – DeAndre Angelle, Ireon Brown, Xavier Hull, and Kary Vincent, Jr. — in the 400- and 800-meter relay as well as Kary Vincent, Jr., an individual gold medalist in the 200-meter dash at Friday’s 5A track events, and Kalon Barnes, a gold medalist in the 100- and 200-meter dash at Saturday’s 4A events.
Beaumont West Brook sprinter Jeffery Hulon, Jr., was the lone 6A medalist, earning a silver medal in the boys 100-meter dash….
