DeSoto girls set four school records at state track and field meet
The down side for the DeSoto girls was that they didn't win a fourth straight state team track and field title Saturday at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin.
But there were a lot of positives Saturday for DeSoto. All four of its individual medalists set school records:
Kira White, gold, 100 meters: 11.66 seconds She beat Converse Judson's Talajah Murrell in a photo finish. White's time was 11.657 and Murrell's was 11.660.
Alexis Duncan, gold, 100 hurdles: 13.39 Duncan pulled away and won by two-tenths of a second.
Camry Grigsby, silver, 800 meters: 2:11.26 Grigsby was second to McKinney Boyd's Aaliyah Miller, whose time of 2:07.07 broke a meet record set by Plano West's Erin Bedell in 2005.
Latyria Jefferson, silver, high jump: 5-foot-9 She cleared the same top height as the champion, but came in second on number of misses.
