Purcell freshman Gracie Pruitt kicked off her high school track career by winning the 100 meters in the Jack Hays Invitational Track Meet in Pauls Valley last week.
Pruitt topped the field with a time of 12.69. She was also sixth in the 200 with a time of 27.85.
Tate Quintero was second in the 400 with a time of 1:07.3 while Kayla Skinner was fourth in 1:09.7.
The 800 meter relay foursome of Pruitt, Liz Caralampio, Jayden Blackwell and Quintero finished third with a time of 1:55.48.
That same group finished fourth in the 1600 meter relay in 4:39.12.
“We ran without one of our veteran runners in Kora Keith,” head coach Greg Dillard said. “I thought our girls stepped up to fill the void very well. I’m very proud of the way this group is competing.”
Lucy Wilson’s pole vault effort of 6’6” was good for fourth place in the meet.
