The highly successful Lady Eagle and Eagle track teams put one more notch in their championship belts this past week, taking good advantage, as winners do, of the familiarity of their "home turf."

After both teams won District Crowns the previous week, they did the same again in the 4A-Waco Region Area Meet, with both teams winning the meet in the very last event of the day!

The girls went into the 4 by 400M relay down by four points to Lorena and garnered the bronze medal to win the meet, 121 to 113, as Lorena didn't have a team in the race. DaMeka Shed finished in second place for high point girl, with 24 points, behind Duke track signee Tracy Janders' phenomenal 38!
