The Gadsden County High School boys’ and girls’ track-and-field teams recently participated in two relays.
On February 17 at the Chiles Relays, the boys’ team placed seventh out of 14 teams. Dequavious Charleston placed fourth in the 100 meters and added a third-place in the 200. The boys’ 4×200 team won its relay with a 1:32.08 time.
The girls’ finished last but rebounded nicely in the Jesse Forbes Relays a week later. The team placed seventh overall in a field of 21 teams. Janasia Cox won the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 44:57. The 4×100 relay team placed seventh.
This Saturday, there are two meets with the teams set to participate in both the Florida High Invitational and the fifth annual Willie Williams Invitational at Godby.
