At the KTCCCA Middle School State Track and Field Championships in Louisville, with 142 schools entered in the competition, the RCMS girls’ team won the team state championship title by a close score of 56 to 55 over a very strong, talented South Marshall team. RCMS battled back from an early deficit with several strong individual and relay performances and took the lead for good after 6th grader Natalie Kirby’s 7th place finish in javelin, the final event of the evening. This gave RCMS a clean sweep of state titles this school year since the girls also won the indoor state championship in March. Team members included: front row (l to r)- Kylie Martin, Brianna Owens, Savannah Thacker, Allie Martin, Tori Dotson, Karalinn Loudermilk, Jasmine Ashcraft; back row (l to r)- Aliyah Lopez, Gracie Spoonamore, Erin Hindman, Natalie Kirby, Samantha Douglas, Kensie Sheffield, Autumn Courtney, Shelby Newland, Grace Gardiner. Not pictured- Hannah Davis, Alexa Bussell, Elisabeth Owens.
