The host team from Pottsboro completely dominated the 2014 District 11-2A track and field championships in the girls division, winning seven of the eight individual running events and two of the three relays. The meet was the first step for qualifying athletes in the University Interscholastic League’s postseason.
The Howe Lady Bulldogs won the 4x100 relay and finished second in the two other relay events, and those teams will advance to the area meet.
Senior Morgan Carney finished second in the 300-meter hurdles to advance to the area round, while Ashlyn Ellis finished fourth in the long jump to earn a spot at the next level. Carney just missed a fourth place finish in the shorter hurdles race.
For the boys. Anthony Hawthorne finished fourth in the 100-meter dash, Joseph Hawthorne got a fourth place finish in the discus, and the 4x400 relay team will advance with its fourth place finish.
Athletes and teams which finish fourth or higher at the area meet will advance to the regional meet to be held in Stephenville April 25-26.
