East and West, St. Joe all compete at regionals

For East track and field standout Abby Barnett, regionals didn’t go quite as planned.

Competing at Heroes Stadium in San Antonio, Barnett finished third in the high jump, while fellow Titan Rachael Allen finished third in the pole vault. Both narrowly missed a spot at state, as the top two finishers in each event qualify. East failed to send any runners through to the Saturday finals.

West earned a chance to keep competing Saturday with their 4×100 relay team. Representing Calhoun, former Athlete of the Week Emme O’Donnell earned a spot at State by winning in the two mile. O’Donnell ran an 11:21 to take the top spot in San Antonio.
