When the Addison Lady Panthers qualified for the MITCA team state finals, they were very excited and eager to compete against other top teams in Division 4. For some it was their last meet so they knew they had to leave it all out on the track today. The ladies finished in 9th place, which was a great finish after coming in ranked in 11th place. In this meet everyone scores points, everyone contributes to the overall team score. So with that, several ladies were in events today that they aren’t normally in, without hesitation they stepped up and competed. Below were some top finishers for the panthers:
Alexis Zacharias finished in 2nd place in the 200 dash against some tough competition with a time of 27.98. Alexis also kicked off the 400, 800 and 1600 relays.
