Congratulations to the Daniel track teams for their excellent performances at the state meet on May 10th and 11th. The girls team finished second in the state for 4A with the boys coming in fifth. The girls were led by Ally Wilson who won the 800-meter run and Mari Cagle Lockhart who took first place in the 3200-meter and fourth place in the 1600-meter. Wilson and Lockhart also teamed with Julia Blouin and Maren Sorber to finish second in the 4 x 800-meter relay. Both Maren and Eliza Sorber finished in the top ten in the 3200-meter and Julia Blouin was fifth in the 800-meter.

 

In other events, senior Emily Gaddis finished a strong fifth in the pole vault. TraVon Lay came in second in the 400-meter hurdles, and Samara Young was eighth in the shot put. In the 4 x 400-meter relay, the team of Lay, Wilson, Catie Van Sant, and Jordyne Scott finished first with a time of 4 minutes and 2 seconds. These results left the Lions only slightly behind Travelers Rest High School, but over ten points ahead of any other team.

 

On the boys side, Adam and Mismeh Balawi teamed with Connelly Ayers and Alex Zangara to win the 4 x 800-meter relay. Zangara also finished second in the 1600-meter with a strong time of 4 minutes and 27 seconds with Mismeh Balawi coming in third, only four seconds behind. Sophomore John Davis finished eighth in the 400-meter hurdles. Ayers and Adam Balawi completed the scoring by finishing sixth and seventh in the 800-meter run. Great job, everyone!
