The Jones County girls won a five-school track meet at Lamar County High School last Tuesday, with six Lady Hounds finishing first in individual events and three more placing second.

The 4-by-400 relay team also won, and the 4-by-100 team was second.

“I’m pleased with the progress we’re making,” coach Geoff Moore said. “We’re real young and still learning, still making some mistakes, but I think we can make some noise in the region if we keep working hard.”

The Jones County boys finished fifth, but coach Travis Reese said his team also showed improvement.

Victoria Dumas and Jasmine Standifer had two wins each in individual events and were on the relay teams to lead the Jones County girls.

Dumas won the 100-meter hurdles and the 300 hurdles. Standifer won the 200-meter dash and the 400 meters.

“I think those two have a real good chance to win at region and do well in state,” Moore said.
