Tigers run in Lake Arthur relays
By Sammy Smith
The DeQuincy High School track team took part in the Lake Arthur High School Tiger relays this past Friday. Both the girls and boys finished 3rd in the team standings and had some remarkable efforts in their events.
The girl's only senior Haleigh Lorenz led the way again, winning the Outstanding Field award as she completed personal records in the Long and Triple Jump on her way to a first place in both. She was also able to finish 2nd later in the 100 meter hurdles and run the first leg of the girls 4 x 100 meter relay which also finish 2nd.
A'keize David also racked up some points as she finished 1st in the 100 meter dash, 2nd in the 200 meter run, anchored both the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 meter relays that finished 2nd. The relay teams were also made up of Quintazhia Roy and Zaria Anderson for both the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200, and Meghan Dyer for the 4 x 200.
The boys team was led by Junior Jhacory Simien, who won the Boy’s Outstanding track award, as he racked up points with a 1st place in the 400 meter run, a 2nd place in the 100 meter dash, and anchored the 4 x 200 and 4 x 400 meter relays that both finished 1st place.
The team was without senior Jacob Cupstid this week and had to rely on others to fill in spots on the relay teams in his stead. The 4 x 200 team and the 4 x 400 teams had Michael Emigh, and Hayden Robertson pulling two of the legs. While, Adrian Gates came in for the 4 x 200 meter relay and Jared Nash came in for the 4 x 400 meter relay team. Jared Nash was also able to pull a 2nd place in the Pole Vault.
The Tigers also pulled together a 4 x 100 meter relay team, composed of Nick Guidry, Kewan Chenier, Kaleb Buck, and Michael Emigh which finished 2nd.
The team travels to East Beauregard High School this Friday to participate in the Trojan Relays.
