Farmersville will compete in the state meet for the second straight season.

Chloe Wall will make the trip to Austin, after taking first place in the pole vault with a height of 10-06 during the Class 3A Region II meet at Whitehouse.

The state meet is scheduled for May 14-16 at Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.

“I have total confidence in Chloe. She seems to thrive in the big events,” head coach Jason Davis said. “I expect her to vault extremely well and have a great chance to at least get on the podium.”

For the full schedule of events visit the University Interscholastic League site at www.uiltexas.org/track-field/state.

One year in 2A, the then freshmen took bronze (third) with a school record and personal best mark of 11-06.

In the top two were White Oak’s Madison Pecot (12-06) and George West’s Caroline Bellows (12-00).

Also earning points (top six) for the Lady Farmers individually last week at Wildcat Stadium were Tamara Ellis (fourth in 100-meter dash at 12.92) and Jasmine Ellis (sixth in 400 in 1:01.76), both during the finals.

Syra Saboori ran a 1:03.79 for eighth in the 400 during the finals.

On the relay front, the 1,600 meters earned fourth with a mark of 1:49.16 and the 800 took seventh in 4:07.22, both in the finals.

Making up the point earning 1,600 were Saboori, Lindsey Donaldson, and Tamara and Jasmine Ellis.

On the 800 were Anna Nibbelin, Wall, Karlee Young and (Tamara) Ellis.

“I was really proud of our girls. Every one of our girls that ran, ran their best time at the regional meet and made the finals,” Davis said. “I thought our mile relay (1,600 meters) had a really good weekend. They ran a season best time of 4:07.22 (an improvement of over seven seconds from the district meet) to give themselves a shot at advancing to state.”

Farmer Ty Rolen just missed earning points with a seventh place showing in the 3,200 at Whitehouse.

He ran a 10:03.07, just 68 seconds off sixth place’s Onalathata Modiga from Keene Smith.

“I thought he (Ty) ran the race we wanted him to run, there are just some really good 3,200 runners in our region,” Davis said.

Qualifying for the trip to Austin were Whitesboro’s Jefferey Butts (first at 9:45.54) and Edgewood’s Trenton Phelps (second in 10:08.04).
