Both the boys and girls track and field teams finished as runner-ups to the two-time state champion McKinney North teams (238 for boys and 179 for girls) in the District 10-5A Championship last week. The LHS girls team finished with 144 points to North’s 179 and the boys team ended up with 212 to North’s 238. Thirty athletes qualified for the area meet that will take place at Leopard Stadium on April 16, with 18 male qualifiers in 16 events and 12 female qualifiers in eight events.

“I am super proud of my team because we competed until the end and gave it our all, even if we came up just a little short,” junior Carsen McFadden said. “This is our first year having two-time state champion McKinney North in our district, but even with that title we were not scared. We competed with [North] and even beat a lot of their athletes.
We have a great group of girls and a great team and we hope to qualify for regionals next week.”

Senior Kassidy Litchenburg broke the school’s 200 meter record, previously held by Grace Ridgeway, with a time of 25.77.

“With breaking the record last week, it’s easy to check out for the season,” Litchenburg said. “But I am extremely excited to race at the Area meet because I will get to compete without thinking about time at all. It would be awesome to have an even better race, but now I can just focus on advancing to regionals.”
