Lady Eagles fly at Region

By Michael Cotton

The Hearne Lady Eagles entered the Region Meet in Waco just one step away from achieving their first goal of the track season, advancing to the State Championship. All that remained  was a victory or 2nd place finish in their events and off to Austin they would go. They realized the task would not be easy because there would be sixteen other teams and individuals who had that same dream in mind. The Lady Eagles felt they had a great opportunity as they entered with some of the fastest times in their specialties.

Talented group ... lead Lady Eagles title run

By Michael Cotton

All year long they have made their presence felt every time they have taken the track. Each has a specialty event that they have dominated and together they all are special as relay teams. Zariah Mercer, Zakeia Polk, Zharia Villaponda, Kathy Johnson, and Kinnikinica Bundage as a relay team have been virtually unbeatable all track season. They looked to carry that trend over into the Area Meet, with one eye on the State Track Meet in a couple of weeks. They entered the Area Meet with high expectations after the season they have enjoyed thus far.

By Michael Cotton
 
When they ran on Wednesday in the District 20-3A track Meet, the Hearne Lady Eagles were out to make a statement to the rest of Class 3A. The Lady Eagles are back and running better than ever in many events. They entered the District Meet with some of the fastest times in the Region in many events, including two of the three relay events. Noted for their sprinters, the Lady Eagles have a core group that could be hard for anyone in the State to handle They have run some of the top times in two relays, the 4x100 and the 4x200 meter events.

JV Boys Rule District

by Michael Cotton
 
The Hearne Eagles decided because of the youth of their male athletic program to allow those youngsters an opportunity to experience success. Instead of running them overmatched against varsity competition they ran against their peers on the Junior Varsity. The Junior Varsity boys stole the show and ran away from the competition to claim the District Title in track. The young Eagles scored points in nearly every event on the track amassing 134 points to claim the Championship ahead of Rockdale and Cameron. It was a great end of the season accomplishment for all the young men involved.

Speed to burn

By Michael Cotton
 
The Hearne Lady Eagles Track team has demonstrated thus far that they are a team with speed to burn. In their ventures onto the track this season they have put together some impressive outings. Coach Lewis Edmonson’s group has steadily improved with each meet they have participated in. This past week they took part in the Hornet Relays in Caldwell and came away with some impressive performances. The 4x100 meter relay team of Zariah Mercer, Kinnicka Bundage, Zharia Villaponda, and Teresa Wiltz ran a season’s best 49.88 seconds, which ranks as one of the best times in the Region this season in that event.

Coach to be inducted

by Michael Cotton
 
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the name Lewis Edmonson, don’t feel like you are alone. I was quite unaware of the resume the young man possesses. He was a dominant athlete on the track at Prairie View A&M University during his college days. So much so, that he holds the school record in the 110 meter high hurdles at 13.53 and ran a leg on the record holding 4x100 meter relay team that ran 39.4 in 2002-2003. Both are records that still stand at the school.
