Three of Victory Baptist Academy’s high school track runners will represent the school at the state level after qualifying in the TCAF District 2 Track and Field Meet in Springtown on Saturday.
Junior Tyler Graves came in first overall in the men’s 400-meter dash, with a time of 54.59 seconds. Graves is the defending TCAF State Champion in the event.
Freshman Alexis Holaway finished first overall in the women’s 300-meter hurdles with a time of 58.97 seconds, making her the District 2 Champ. Since the top four finishers in each event qualify for state, Holaway will also run in the women’s 400 meter dash, finishing with a time of 1:16.86, coming in fourth place overall.
Kaysie Holaway, also a freshman, will compete in the women’s 200 meter dash, in which she finished fourth place overall with a time of 31.52 seconds.
The TCAF State Track and Field Meet will be held Saturday, April 12 in Springtown.
Another VBA student, eighth grader Tessa Catuto, finished her track season on top in the CSAF Regional Meet held last Friday in Bedford. Catuto completed the girls’ 1600 meter run with a time of 6:13 and the girls’ 2400 meter run with a time of 9:37, finishing first overall in both events.
