Johnson County’s track coach, Penny Gentry, took seven Longhorns to the Tri-Cities track meet on Saturday and they fared well in the event at Science Hill.
“We only had seven of our athletes competing, somewhat due to Easter weekend and also due to the number of schools represented there,” said Gentry. “It could be a little intimidating to some of our younger athletes.”
Stephanie Coffey ran in the 100, 200 and for the first time ever in the 400-meter run. She sat a personal best with the 400 and is looking forward to beating that time.
“Stephanie is one of those athletes that when she sets her head to do something she will accomplish the task,” added Gentry. “She will give you her whole heart leaving nothing behind and she’ll be ready to do a little better the next time.”
Dalton Brown also ran the mile and 800 meter run. He participated in two-mile run for the first time.
