The Lady Buckeyes dominated their division of the District 15-4A track meet at Bullard Wednesday, April 12, scoring 213 points. Rival Bullard was second with 125, Kilgore third at 108, while Chapel Hill in fourth (69), Gladewater at fifth (62), and Spring Hill at sixth (21) trailed the leaders badly. The Lady Buckeyes won so overwhelmingly largely because of the large haul of points they collected by willing all three relays.
The Buckeyes, the junior varsity boys and junior varsity girls were in the opposite circumstances as the Buckeye varsity and the girls JV finished fifth while the J.V. boys were sixth.
Gilmer’s girls placed first in the 4 X 100 meter (sprint) relay in 48.73. The team consisted of Sommer Hines, Annie Stevenson, Dymond Clark, and Mecii Griffin.
