Haithcock competed in the 100-meter hurdles and finished ninth out of 20 athletes.

Taylor Smith also competed in the meet in the shot put.

Last year at the state meet, Smith finished in third place. This year she finished second with a throw of 39’ 6 1/2”.

Smith missed first place by a only a few inches. Both athletes will be freshmen next year at Washington High School.
