The Mount St. Mary Academy Track and Field team completed their season on Friday, April 26, at the 6A Central Conference Championship at Scott Field in Little Rock. The team competed in seven events. The 4×100, 4×400 and 4×800 relay teams all qualified for the state championship in Hot Springs on May 3, though they did not participate due to sickness and the Closing Prayer Service occurring on the same day.
The team competed in a handful of track meets across Central Arkansas during their season, which began in March. A highlight included sophomore Staley Tatum winning the 800-meter race at the Wampus Cat Relays hosted by Conway High School on April 16 with a time of 2:33.18.
Congratulations to Coach Cody Henry and the Track and Field Belles on a great season!
