NEW WAVERLY TRACK AND FIELD — Ashley Parks still looking to qualify for state meet

HUNTSVILLE — New Waverly junior Ashley Parks still has another opportunity to advance to the UIL Track and Field State Meet.

The first day of the Class 2A Region III meet didn’t go as well as planned on Friday in Whitehouse.

District champion in the 100-meter dash, Parks failed to qualify for the finals.

In the triple jump, Parks leapt a personal-best 35 feet, 6 inches and finished fourth.

Parks also ran in the 200 meters preliminaries, but Lady Dogs track and field head coach Donna Gilliam was unsure if her speedy runner reached the finals in that event.

The junior will compete in the long jump today.

A top-two finish will get her to the state meet or also having the best third-place finish among all four regions.

    On Monday, nearly 25 campers took the field at Kate Barr Ross Park and were instructed by Huntsville Hornets softball head coach Rick Burns and several members of his team.  The players, coaches and campers battled through the heat to have a successful day that saw many of the campers receive one-one-one instruction.
