Center HS Track Team Advances to Regional

April 27, 2015 - The Center High School Track team traveled to Carthage High School on Wednesday, April 22nd for the Area Track Meet. Zara Sloan, a Junior, competed in the two mile and clocked a time only two seconds off of her personal best. She came up just short of a regional bid but did a great job.

To get to Regional, you must place in the top four teams and all three boys relays did just that and even clocked some of their best times all year. The boys 4x100 relay is made up of Sophomores, Joe King and Octavious Evans and Juniors, Sayoddrick Barnes and Dacorey McGee. The 4x200 relay consists of Sophomores, Joe King, Octavious Evans, and Adrian Johnson, and Junior Sayoddrick Barnes. The Boys Mile Relay qualifiers are Sophomores, Octavious Evans and Kyle Parks, and Juniors, Arnol Escobedo and Sayoddrick Barnes.

Arnol Escobedo also competed individually in the boys 800 meter run. Clocking his best time all year he came in an extremely close second and is headed to Regional next week.

The Regional Meet will be on May 1st and 2nd at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville.
