Teamwork helps Lady Spartans to title

Winning its second consecutive district title didn’t come easily for Centeninal’s girls track and field team.

The Lady Spartans clinched the District 5-5A title by winning the final race of the night, the 1,600-meter relay Thursday at Burleson ISD Stadium.

“Here is what I’m pleased about,” Centennial girls coach Sarah Eden said. “We don’t have any pole vaulters and Legacy scored 22 points in the pole vault and that put us in the big hole. But we were able to make up that deficit because we are a team. I’m just excited to see what we can do in the future and I know we still have a lot in us.”

Centennial won the district title by scoring 171 points. Mansfield Legacy was second (157 points) and Mansfield Timberview placed third (91). The Spartans scored 122 points to finish third. Timberview and Legacy each scored 175 points to share the district title.

“I’m just proud of our kids like they have every year,” Centennial boys coach Terry Strambler said. “This district is so tough and we were able to place third. I’m extremely excited about the future.”
