Lady Cardinal Track & Field competed at the UIL Region 2-4A Championships (TAMUC) over the weekend. Inclement weather forced the Regional meet to a compressed one day Prelim/Finals schedule, which meant some had to run four races in one day. This did not discourage the Lady Cardinals, as they were confident in their mental and physical capability to recover from a tough qualifying preliminary round in the morning.

In the Finals, the Melissa Lady Cardinals put on a performance, nearly capturing a Regional Team Championship, and finishing Runner-Up! Next, they travel to the University of Texas at Austin to compete at State on May 13 and 14. (See Schedule)
