Track Team Wins State Championship

The CHS track team took the State Title in the State Meet at LSU on Saturday, May 3. Trailing and needing to win the final event of the evening for a chance at the team title, the Bears ran one of the fastest times recorded in the United States to win the event and bring home the state championship. In an unprecedented accomplishment, every athlete that qualified for the meet scored points for the team. In this total team effort there were also several who distinguished themselves by winning individual event titles. Julian Parker ran the fastest time in any class in winning the 800 meter run and the 4×400 relay team composed of Parker, Jace Guerin, Kevin Taylor and Andrew Rhorer simply obliterated the field in their record setting run.
