Nunez won the
5A High Jump after being runner-up for 3 years and anchored the 4x1
that recorded the fastest time at the state meet out of all six classifications.
She also set the 100 meter
hurdle school record at 15.09. Our time in the 4x1 relay of 48.42 was
just short of the state
record of 48.10. Nunez finished ranked #1in the state in the high jump.
Ducree won the triple jump and the 400 for the 2nd consecitive year.
She finished ranked #1
in the state in the 400 meter dash. She also ran on the winning 4x1
relay. Had it not been for
a bad start in the 100, in which she finished 3rd, she most likely would
have won this at state also.
Ducree has set 4 school records in the past 2 years-triple jump (37'1"),
100 (12.02), 400 (57.35)
and 4x1 relay (48.42). She was undefeated in the 400 this year as was
the 4x1 relay.

Hannah is going to Harvard and Desherra Jackson (ranked #2 in the state
