Jordan Does Well in VH Track
by Lonnie Flippen -
The Junior High Valentine Lady Pirates - both of them - competed in the Van Horn Eagle's Invitational Track Meet, Thursday afternoon and evening on March 1st. Isabel Guillory and Jordan Miller, both 7th graders, competed in two events each.
Guillory competed in the long jump and the 100 meters but did not place in either event while Miller won 5th in the shot put with a throw of 20'11". She also finished second in the discus with a throw of 48'10". She fouled on two of her attempts including a throw of 59'2" which would have won the event going away. Both girls competed in the 7th grade division.
The Lady Pirates will travel to Alpine on March 22 after spring break and then compete in the district meet on April 5 in Van Horn once again. The number of meets were very limited this year as the district meets are being held very early to accommodate all of the state testing dates.
