The 4×200 and 4×400 girls relay team won gold, and the 4×100 girls relay team finished second at the State Meet. Freshman Bayleigh Minor was awarded ‘Athlete of the Meet’ (MVP) with five gold medals.

“I am very proud of the way our athletes competed at state. We started the season off with the goal of winning the State Championship. The girls came into the meet as favorites, and they did not disappoint,” Head Track Coach Deon Minor said. “They put together some great performances on day one and followed them up on day two. The boys had a slow day one, but bounced back on day two. They all competed very well. As a coach, all I want to see is that my athletes are competing and doing their best.”

“This is the first State Championship in school history for girls track, and we are so proud of all of these athletes and their accomplishments,” Interim Director of Athletics Aaron Carpenter said. “Coach Minor has created a winning environment for these athletes to thrive, and we are seeing the results.  I want to congratulate every athlete and coach that contributed to this Championship, and the entire FBCA community is excited for all their successes.”
