V-A, Waurika girls compete at regionals

DUNCAN — The goal for members of the Velma-Alma and Waurika girls track teams on Saturday was simple, qualify for the state meet.

As a team the V-A Lady Comets finished in seventh place with 37 points.

Ariah Johnson turned in a solid day at regionals, finishing in second place during the 100 meter dash event with a time of 13.50. Johnson also placed eighth in the 200 meter dash, before claiming fourth in the long jump event.

Cailin Wright finished in fifth place during the 800 meter run with a time of 2:41.83, before claiming fifth in the 1600 meter run with a time of 6:19.45.

Hannah Crawford finished in 11th place in the 800 meter run, with teammates Sidney Lewis and Emily Combest claiming seventh and ninth place in the 1600 meter run.

Combest also claimed sixth in the 3200 meter run with a time of 13:59.38, before teaming with Lewis, Wright and Crawford to earn fourth place in the 3200 meter relay event.

There was a notable absence from the pole vault event for the Lady Comets, as senior Shalyn Files was forced to withdraw due to a back injury.

Marli Barney and Casady Thompson finished in ninth and 11th place respectively in the shot put event, with Eme Lewis claiming 14th place.

Nikki Wright turned in a solid second place finish in the discus throw, finishing with a best attempt of 91”8’.

For the Lady Eagles, Daley Gay was the star of the show at regionals.

Gay claimed first place in the 800 meter run, before winning in the 100 & 300 meter hurdles events.

Courtney Howard finished in 16th place during the 1600 meter run, before claiming 22nd place in the shot put and 17th place in the discus throw.

Reyna Swift also turned in two solid performances, winning the shot put event with a throw of 33”4’, before claiming third in the discus throw with a toss of 90”3’.
