Several goal-oriented athletes from both Life High School Oak Cliff and Life High School Waxahachie are realizing all of their hard work is paying off. They traveled to Austin to compete in the recent Track & Field UIL State Championships at The University of Texas at Austin.
From Life High School Oak Cliff, James Farmer-Cole placed 3rd in the 400M. The 4x100 team of Elijah Sheppard, Aderian Gee, Brandon Clark, James Farmer-Cole, Emmanuel Broussard, and Howard White also represented the Lions on the podium with a second place finish. The team broke a school record with a time of 41:85.
Life High School Waxahachie also sent several athletes for multiple events. Darius Fuller had a 5th place finish in the Triple Jump while Te’derick Robinson finished in 8th place in the 110M hurdles.
Several Lady Mustangs also competed at the state meet with Mustang Bre’Anna Lacy came away with a 4th place finish in the 300M hurdles. The women’s 4x200M relay team of Emeri Adames, Sanai Gort, Asia Rawlins, Ty’uanna Simmons, Chanique Tonge, and Bre’Anna Lacy finished their race in 3rd place, but was later disqualified for stepping out of the lane.
Life School Athletic Director, Scott Thrush, is excited for the athletes to have had the opportunity to compete at the state level.
“With the disappointment of having our track season canceled last year, nobody knew what to expect coming into this season. It’s been exciting to see these student athletes and coaches compete and have success doing what they love. The coaches and athletes have shown great resilience in making a return trip to Austin to compete at the highest levels,” says Coach Thrush.
