Four members of the David Emanuel Academy track team qualified for the state track meet by finishing in the top four of their respective events at the region meet held at Robert Toombs Christian Academy in Lyons last Thursday. The state meet will be this Friday and Saturday at Hugh Mills Stadium in Albany.
Spencer Lanier won the shot put competition and finished second in the discus to qualify in both events. Lanier will now return to defend the state championship he won last year in the shot put. Also qualifying for DEA was Casey Johnson in the triple jump, Kayla Cody in the discus, and Amanda Cardell in the long jump. Johnson was a second place finisher while Cody and Cardell both finished third.
“We are happy to have four of our student-athletes qualify for the state track meet” said DEA track Andy Callaway. “Hopefully we will make a good showing at the state meet”.
