THS girls take home runner-up at AA state track meet


The Lady Bulldogs track team added more hardware to their 2014 collection.

Thomasville’s girls brought home a runner-up finish in AA after last weekend’s state meet in Albany.

Danisha Jones, who was the high point athlete in field events, led off Thursday’s session with a first place finish in the shot put and discus throws, which gave Thomasville 20 early points.

Mahogony Walter added to the tally with a pair of second place finishes in the 100- and 200-meter dashes.

Rachel Smith contributed by finishing fifth in the 3200-meter run and sixth in the 1600-meter run.

Aleah Wagner took home sixth place in the 100-meter hurdles.

The 4x400-meter relay team of Walter, Rebekah Smith, Sheriona Jackson and Demetria Miley took home seventh place.

The collated events tallied Thomasville a score of 48, which was just shy of top-ranked Lovett’s 92.

The girls’ runner-up finish comes on the heels of their first region championship since the 1980s.

“It was an exciting season, of course,” Pinkins, the first-year coach, said. “I was new to it and we had a lot of young girls, so taking them throughout the year and watching them develop was an exciting thing. I think now they know, with a taste of winning, what it feels like. I think that will carry into even better performances next year.”
