It was a big weekend for local track as numerous Fayette County athletes finished either
first or second in their events at regional meets to qualify for the state track meet, which will be held in Austin May 14-16. The La Grange girls 4x400 relay team makes a return trip
to state, and they may be headed there faster than ever as the quartet of Libby Read, Hannah
Gerecke, Hannah Zuhn and Lauren Zbranek zoomed around the track in a time of 4:02.81 Friday in the prelims and then beat that with a run of 4:00.53 in the finals, but each time Gatesville
was just a little faster. In the finals, Gatesville won with a 3:58.73. The La Grange girls
will get another crack at them at state.
