Apr. 25 Lafayette Jeff (H) 5:30 pm (L) 72-49
The Lady Kats had Senior night on Wednesday evening and ran against Lafayette Jefferson. Jeff has a lot of participants this year and ended up pulling away for the win last night 72-49. The Kats were led by triple winner Haley E. Salinas. Haley ran the opening leg of the winning 4x800 relay team of Taylor Walden, Tyasia Burks, and Jocilynn McNeil. Haley also won the 1600 and the 3200 to round out a great evening. This was even more impressive that it
was our first dual meet without the Boys team so there was a much quicker turnaround between races.

Other winners for the Kats included Josilynn McNeil in the 800, Tionna Brown in the 100, Nicole Erny in the 300 hurdles and Liesl Elkin in the pole vault.

The throwers set had a good night as well with several PR’s last night in shot put and discus. Including Brianne Jones threw 31 feet in the shot put for her season’s best.
