Marlin girls third at State Track Meet

The Marlin girls ran their way to a State Championship on Friday at the UIL Track and Field Championships.

The Marlin girls 4x200-meter relay team won the Class 2A state championship, adding to the Lady Bulldogs’ 4x100 silver medal.

The relay success propelled the Marlin girls to third place finish in the team standings.

Marlin’s Kendra Hayes, Aniya Williams, Taliyah Davis and Messiah McGowan turned in a time of 1:43.55 to win the gold medal in a tight 4x200 race. McGowan crossed the line just .07 seconds before Haskell. 

In the 4x100, Aleighseyah Washington, Davis, Hayes and Williams — all Marlin seniors — clocked a season-best time of 48.56 seconds. 

Running just a few minutes after she took part in the relay, Davis captured bronze in the 100-meter hurdles with a 15:43.
