DUTCHTOWN'S RACHEL FEREDAY CLOSES ON THE FASTEST 800m IN LA STATE MEET HISTORY!
Simply the best. That is how to describe all of our MileSplit LA Girls' Performer of the Week Finalists. Not only did they win their event(s). They were the best in all classes at the LHSAA State Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Two (Dutchtown's Rachel Fereday and Scotlandville's Makeriah Harris) set COMPOSITE Meet Recrods.
Fereday ran a 2:11.75 in the LHSAA Class 5A 800m, breaking the record of 2:12.04 set by Mandeville's Chelsey Jones in 2014. Harris ran a 41.49 in the 300m hurdles, breaking the composite record of 42.60 held by LSU's Alia Armstrong.
Patrick Taylor's Amairi Ashford had the fastest time in both the 100m (11.72) and the 200m (24.30). Mt. Carmel's Catalina Reichard had the fastest times in the distrance events. Reichard went 5:04.86 in the 1600m and 11:05.96 in the 3200m.
St. Louis sophomore Hannah Boullion was the fastest 400m runner at the LHSAA State Outdoor Meet. She ran a time of 55.03. She also ran a leg on St. Louis' 4x400m relay team, which broke the Class 3A record by five seconds with their time of 3:51.09, breaking Scotlandville's record of 3:56.29 set in 2005.
South Beauregard's Trinity Spooner, who will now go on to compete for LSU, at the longest javelin throw of 156-6. The Class 3A and composite record belong to Benton's Rachel Walker, who had a throw of 164-4 at the LHSAA State Outdoor Meet in 2002. Bunkie sophomore Kaylen Rabalais, who finished second to Spooner with a throw of 150-0 is now on the clock as she prepares to break Walker's record.
