Rocky Bayou Christian School (RBCS) celebrated an exceptional season as their Track and Field team smashed thirteen school records across both the boys’ and girls’ teams.
The athletes’ achievements earned them a well-deserved place at the Regional Class 1A track and field meet at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville on May 7.
Out of the eighteen athletes representing RBCS, four Knights have secured a spot in the state competition on May 17, also in Jacksonville. This performance marks their best showing to date.
Mori McCain, Elianna Christensen, Macy Fekkers, and Emilee McPherson clinched first place in the 4×100 meter relay and second place in the 4×400 meter relay.
A school-record time accompanied those victories in both events. The team clocked a 49.78 in the 4×100 meter relay and a 4:13.27 in the 4×400 meter relay.
Individually, Christensen added to her accolades by securing a third-place finish in the 100-meter dash, beating her previous school record with a time of 12.38. McPherson claimed first place in the 400-meter hurdles, crossing the finish line with a time of 1:10.16. Her achievement also marked a new school record, surpassing her previous best.
As they gear up for the state championships, Mori McCain and Elianna Christensen, both seniors, are savoring every moment, knowing that this will be their final track meet before graduating.
