Track head coach Steve Jones showed his appreciation for the Flyers


WACO.TX- The St. Joseph track and field team were at the TAPPS 5A state meet in Waco and they returned with some hardware by the seniors.

Senior Nicholas Rodriguez won gold in the 800-meter dash. Senior Ryan Ward won silver in high jump. She cleared five feet on her first attempt which locked her in second place. Senior Caleb Ybarra finished with a silver medal in the 100-meter dash and a silver in the 200-meter dash. Senior Lauren Theriot placed sixth for her 3200-meter run. Girls track head coach Steve Jones was very proud of all of them.

“Ryan, Lauren, Caleb and Nick represent the best of an amazing senior class of 2022. While we are sad to see them all graduate it was great to see so many of them finish on top. The future for this entire St. Joseph class is incredibly bright,” said Jones.

Great job to all the Flyers and Lady Flyers on their achievements at the state meet.
