State Championship Meet to feature three Lions
By Alonzo Garza
Three Lockhart athletes will compete in the 2008 University Interscholastic League Texas High School Track and Field State Championships at the University of Texas Mike Meyers Stadium in Austin on Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10.
It is almost imperative that all Lion and Lady Lion athletes go and cheer on Lady Lion Cece Smi
th and Lions James Bonn and Rory Tunningley.
Smith will compete in the Varsity Girls’ 100-meter run and the 200-meter run. She finished first in both races at the 2008 Region IV AAAA Track and Field meet at Alamo Stadium in San Antonio on Friday, April 25 and Saturday, April 26.
In the 100-meter, she finished with a time of 12.30 in the preliminary run and 12.41 in the finals. In the 200-meter, she finished with a time of 25.78 in prelims and 25.16 in the finals.
Bonn will compete in the Varsity Boys’ 800-meter run. He finished second at the same regional meet, with a time of 1:59.5 in prelims and 1:56.8 in the finals.
Tunningley will compete in the Varsity Boys’ 3,200-meter run and the 1,600-meter run. In the 3,200-meter, he finished first with a time of 9:12.37 and second in the 1,600-meter with a time of 4:20.85 at the regional meet.
All three athletes are capable of winning gold on their own at the state meet, but it would be great to have a big crowd of Lockhart Lions cheering them across the finish line.
See you at the meet.
