Riverdale Academy has two state champions. The school reported on their Facebook page “the Rebels competed in the MAIS Class A State Track Meet May 5th at Jackson Academy. We are proud to say that we have two state champions! Jaylee Riggs, senior, is the state champion in shot put and Gracie Almond, junior, is the state champion in high jump. Way to go ladies!” Riggs and Almond are shown above.
Red River High School’s track team brought home the state title in the 400 meters. The state meet was held last Friday in Baton Rouge. Dez Bryant won his third state 2-A championship title. Bulldog Track Coach Billy Henry, Jr. said, “I’m proud of Dez and our whole team that went to the state meet. No one from Red River has ever won three state titles.” Henry added,“the others did well but did not place in the top three of their events.”
Bryant is shown below with his family. He recently signed a track scholarship from Texas Western College.
