5-21 - MHSAA Regional

On the girl's side even though the team is twice as big as last year's team, the overall lack of depth really hurt the team at the Regional Level with girl's team taking 14th out of 16 teams. Nonetheless, the girl's team had two individuals as well as a relay team that earned Regional honors with their 7 place performances. In so doing, Senior Sophia Kokales established a new career personal record in the 100 Hurdles (18.74) and Freshman Hannah Lee broke her season personal record in the pole vault by one foot which resulted in her once again setting a new school record (7' 6"). The relay team consisting of Senior Jonae Allen, Freshman Nareai McPherson, Freshman Jamie Jefferies, and Sophomore Ahykla Blakely took home the final medals for the team.
