Trigg County's girls' relay teams brought home a pair of state championships and set a new school record in the process.
Trigg's 400-meter relay team of seniors Janada Acree and Abigail Torian, freshman Shelby Grubbs, and eighth grader Khadijah Grubbs won the event in a time of 49.72, becoming the first Trigg team in school history to beat 50 seconds. The 2002 team, led by Pauline White, and last year's squad set a Class 1A state record with a time of 50.16 seconds.
The 800-meter relay consisting of the same foursome team just missed a state record by winning in a time of 1:43.68 seconds, just missing the state record by .05 seconds (Fort Campbell, 1991).
The school record, which is normally counted at the state meet because of the advanced timing, is 1:43.30, set in 1982.
The 1600-meter relay team of Acree, Khadijah Grubbs, DiAsia Acree, and Alex Olin finished ninth.
In the sprint events, Abigail Torian won the 100 meter dash, edging Paducah Tilghman's DeAudrea Horne by .04 seconds.
However, both Torian and Horne were surprised in the 200 meter dash by Western Hills eighth grader Alisha Adair, who nipped Horne by .05 seconds and Torian by .40 seconds.
Shelby Grubbs finished 11th in the 100 meters in 13.14 seconds, and Khadijah Grubbs was 11th in the 200 meters in 27.01.
In other events, freshman Lynease Byers finished eighth in the 1600-meter run with a time of 5:35.
Janada Acree finished 11th in the high jump with a height of 4-feet, 10-inches.
Trigg County finished tied with Paducah Tilghman in sixth place with 37 points. Highlands won their second straight title with 62.5 points, edging Lloyd Memorial who was second with 61 points.
