Lakasia Willis, sophomore member of the Morgan County High School (MCHS) track team competed in the Georgia High School Association’s AAA state track meet last weekend at the Hugh Mills Stadium in Albany. Willis placed 14th in the girls’ 800-meter preliminary races with a time of 2:38.43, which was not enough to qualify her for the final event. Willis qualified to compete in the state tournament after finishing third in the 800-meter race at the AAA B Sectional on Saturday, April 26.
“Lakashia wished she had preformed better, but is upbeat about next year,” said MCHS Track Coach Dusty Hawkins. “She knows she has to work harder and I feel that she will. My hopes are that Lakashia will run cross country to help her conditioning for next year.” Congratulations to Willis for reaching the 2014 AAA State meet.
