May 18 Track Events:
Congratulations to our
Lions and Lady Lions track teams!
Both teams won the class A region championship. This was the Lion's 5th consecutive title and the 2nd straight title for the Lady Lions. The guys finished 2nd overall among all schools, and the girls finished 3rd overall. Calvin Austin III stole the show with 1st place finishes in the 100, 200, and 400. He set region records and school records in all 3 events. He was also on our 1st place 4x200 team, which also set a school and region record. That relay is the fastest of any team in Tennessee (by more than a second), and we're back in the national top-25 as of tonight.
