The Canton High School track teams opened the season last Thursday in Cherokee, with the girls’ team collecting 26 points in the process. That total was good enough to place the ladies eighth in the meet.
LaShayla Green started her senior campaign off with a strong showing as she had a hand in scoring each of the Lady Tigers’ 26 points. She won first place in the 200-meter dash with a time of 26.69 seconds. Green actually ran faster in her preliminary run with the wind being the likely culprit of the difference. The wind affected many athletes on the day, but both of Green’s times in the 200 were still an improvement on her effort at the State Meet last spring.
