Running Strong

Angelo State’s men’s and women’s outdoor track and field teams proved once again that they are among the elite in the Lone Star Conference as the Rambelles won their sixth consecutive LSC Championship and the Rams placed in the top three for the 28th straight year.

The ’Belles scored 182 points to take the LSC title over second-place West Texas A&M (161 points). The Rams just missed defending their LSC crown, scoring 153 points to place second behind Texas A&M-Kingsville (175 points).

Individually for ASU, Jordan Gray (Marble Falls), Jasmine Ambowode (Lyon, France), Kearah Danville (Kingston, Jamaica), Chesney Neely (Goldthwaite), Luis Perez (Forney), Dallas Gray (Rosenberg), Robbie Thayer (Wylie) and Wala Gime (Papua, New Guinea) earned LSC titles in their respective events.

Jordan Gray was named the LSC Female Track Athlete of the Year after winning the LSC title in the heptathlon, and she earned All-America honors in the heptathlon at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Allendale, Mich.

Also earning All-American status at the national meet were Perez (400 meters, 4×400-meter relay), Gime (110-meter hurdles, 4×400-meter relay), Thayer (4×400-meter relay), Dallas Gray (4×400-meter relay), Danville (triple jump) and Neely (discus).
