Girls Win Indoor State Championship, Boys Have Best Showing Ever

The girls team won the indoor 3A state championship at the JDL fast track in dramatic fashion.  The boys team had their best ever showing at the meet finishing 18th out of 41 schools.

The girls team competition was very tight all evening and after a great performance by the Tigers in the two mile, the score was tied with one event to go – the 4X400m relay.  The score was Marvin Ridge 54, Chapel Hill 54, and West Carteret 53, all with relay teams in the final event.  It couldn’t have been more dramatic!

It’s fitting that Anna Passannante got the baton for the final leg and sealed the team title finishing second overall in the event and just ahead of Marvin Ridge.  The Tigers claim their first ever track state championship on the boys or girls side.
