— Aledo enior Carl Williams capped off his considerable AHS athletic prowess by clearing a season-best seven feet at the UIL Class 4A State Track & Field Competition on Friday, in Austin.
The leap earned Williams a gold medal, as he blew away the field, jumping six inches higher than the next four competitors.
Taking silver in the 100-meter Dash, junior Ryan Newsome sprinted to a 10.51 time in a very competitive field. Just two one-hundreths seperated Newsome’s second place and his next two competitors.
Other Aledo results from the state meet include the girls’ 4X100-meter sprint relay team finishing in sixth place, Brittney and Danielle Trought placing sixth and eighth respectively in the girls’ 100-meter Hurdles.
Brittany Trought also finished sixth in the 300-meter Hurdles.
