Senior Jenny Delgado earns the Lady Tigers’ only point in the season-opening meet with her sixth-place finish in the the long jump. Delgado is hoping to make it to the State Meet in 2019, after falling just short as a junior.
Taylor Dowell clears the bar in the high jump. Dowell will be one of the Lady Tigers more reliable participants as she will not only participate in the high jump, but also on the relay teams.
Hopelin Hood competes in the 200-meter dash. The freshman is expected to be one of Canton’s fastest athletes, and will also be helping on the relay teams.
Hanna Noble competes in both the hurdle events and finished just shy of qualifying for the Regional Final last Spring as a freshman.
Canton girls notch season-opening track efforts
The Canton High School girls’ track team competed in Cherokee last Friday, where they only managed to score a single team point in their first meet of the season. After both LaShayla Green and Gabby Martin both helped represent this team at State as seniors last year, many of the returning girls stepped into bigger roles last Friday for the first time.
Senior Jenny Delgado earned the Lady Tigers only team point with her sixthplace finish in the long jump. After narrowly missing out on a trip to State last spring with her seventh-place finish at the Regional Meet, Delgado topped that performance by over a foot on Friday.
Her jump of 15 feet, 2 ¼ inches would have qualified her for the State Meet last year, and was the top mark on Friday among participants from Class A. Arianna Green also competed in the long jump, with her top jump coming in at 13 feet, 1 ½ inches.
