On the day, Lady Mohawk Taylor Seal won the high point trophy, beating girls from nearly two dozen regional schools in the process. As for the team as a whole, they also posted a top-10 performance.
The Tribe took part in the well-known event against a variety of other schools, including Rivercrest, Gosnell, Nettleton, Annie Camp and McArthur, to mention a few.
Seal continued with the success she enjoyed last year, winning the girls long jump event with a distance of 14 feet and 9 inches. She also took first place in the 100 meter hurdles, setting a time of 17.73 seconds.
She also finished third in the 100-meter dash, sixth in the 200-meter and fourth in the 400-meter dash. Seal also took part in the 4x100 and 4x400 relays, helping the Lady Mohawk junior team to a seventh place finish among the 23 teams on hand for the competition.
