A couple local athletes earned all-state honors in the pole vault. Snider’s Niesha Anderson finished third in the vent, and Carroll’s Alexandra Sparks placed fourth.

Northrop had a pair of top-ten finishers in the long jump. Morgan Patterson was third in that event, with Kobi Scott finishing ninth.

Patterson and Scott also performed well in the hurdles. Patterson finished fifth in a time of 14.38 seconds, while Scott was eighth, posting a time of 14.54 seconds.

Northrop’s 4x100 team (which also included Patterson and Scott) finished fifth in the finals at 48.07 seconds.
