Congratulations to the Duncanville Girls Track athletes who competed in the State meet last weekend in Austin. The team finished 3rd overall and is nationally ranked.

The girls 4x200 relay team of Dy’Mond Wiley, Arius Williams, Tynecia Singletary, and Alexis Cokes took the State Championship and set the best time in the nation this at 1:35:05.

Dy’Mond Wiley, Payge Side, Tynecia Singletary, and Arius Williams brought home the silver medal after placing 2nd in the 4x400 relay.

Seniors Alexis Cokes and Payge Side finished 5th in the 100 and 200 meters.

“As a coach, State was a roller coaster ride with highs and lows,” said Head Coach Yvette Green. “But I’m blown away by the girls’ ability to fight back and overcome the adversity they faced as a team.”

“I am very proud of these amazing Panthers. Thank you, Duncanville for all of the support,” Green added.
