Track team takes on Jeffco

On Thursday, May 5, the LHS Track team competed against 17 other schools at the Jeffco Stadium. The girl’s team took 6th place, and the boys placed 7th.

“As a team I think we did okay. We were missing some key players this week, but we had some people step up and fill some of the gaps we had,” said senior Daniel Malek.

Sophomore Marina Cannon PRed in the pole vault with a potential state qualification, and senior Colin Cannon finished first in the 800m with a definite state qualifying time.

The team also did well due to several relays that performed competitively and thus scored well. Their next meet is the Jeffco League meet, on next Tuesday and Saturday.
