Class A Girls do well

TV Hagenah

New Mexico State Track was held over the weekend and for Quay County Class A competitors: House, Logan and San Jon, it proved to be a mixed bag of results.

Among the girls a number of young women shone brightly as House placed fourth overall among 26 competitors with 37 points. San Jon placed 10th with 16 points and Logan placed 16 scoring 9 1/2 points in track and field competition.
Stand outs among the girls were the Lee family of House with Hailey Lee placing in four different state events; second in the 300 meter hurdles, third in the triple jump, second in the pole vault and second in the long jump. Lindsey Lee placed fourth in the 800 meter Run and Sara Lee was just two places behind Hailey in the pole vault, placing fourth in that event.

“Everyone did really well,” said House girls track coach Jason Lee. “Everybody tried really hard. Just about everybody turned in personal bests. We had an outside chance for the top spot and we didn’t get it but it wasn’t for lack of trying.” San Jon, who took only four girls to the state competition, had three place in the competition.
Class A boys did not fare quite as well as their distaff side but a number of them placed as well.
