Two Trojans shine at Adidas nationals

Two LC athletes turned in strong performances at the Adidas Outdoor National Track and Field Championship last week in Greensboro, NC.

Freshman phenom Makayla Watts placed 10th in the 100-meters out of 90 athletes. She was also 13th overall in the 200-meters out of a field of 150 runners.

Ross Hamrick finished 18th in the high jump out of a field of 90 athletes.

Juan Diaz just closed out his second year as head coach of the LC track and field operation. “I think we are moving in the right direction to be a state contender. We took 18 young people to the state meet and brought back 14 medals. Makayla had an outstanding year rewriting the state record book,” Diaz said.

The Lady Trojans were 2.5 points shy of a state title while the Trojans were 11 points from the top.
