The Plano East track and field teams put in a strong performance during last Thursday’s Cougar Invitational at The Colony, as many athletes in both the girls’ and boys’ events finished in the top four within those competitions.
PESH is scheduled to compete today in the Ron McNeil Invitational at Kimbrough Stadium, and will then have more than two weeks to prepare for its next meet: the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Relays at Standridge Stadium.
That will also be the same weekend as the Jesuit-Sheaner Relays at Jesuit, which is only for those athletes who qualify for that competition.

Girls
Senior Ashleigh Ready took second in the 400 meters (1:03.54), which was two seconds behind Mesquite junior Adia Vaughn (1:01.54).
Arianna Briggs, a junior, ran a 15.75 to capture fourth in the 100-meter hurdles, an event that was won by Plano senior Ava Paul (14.56). Paul’ teammate, sophomore Cameron Tracy was second (15.50), followed by Mesquite sophomore Montasia Shannon (15.53).
Lady Panther junior Peyton McFadden (26.88) was third in the 200, with Frisco Independence senior Lawanda Harvey (26.39) and Hebron’s Peyton Ricks (26.88) crossing the finish line before her.
The 400-relay team (50.62) was second behind Hebron (49.93), while the 800 relay team was third (1:48.17), with Plano (1:46.27) and Hebron (1:46.42) taking first and second.
In the field events, Mesa Brown, a junior, was third in the high jump (4-10), with two Lewisville seniors, Jermila Tigner and Rebecca Huddleston, finishing first and second, respectively, with leaps of 5-04 and 5-02.
Senior Jakerria Hughes was second in the long jump (17-06), which was a fraction behind Plano senior Lauren Fairchild, first at 17-06.25. Another Lady Panther senior, Anastasia Azubogu, was third (33-10) in the shot put, with Plano senior Alexandra Headley and The Colony senior Kennedy Monroe taking first and second at 38-07 and 34-09.

Boys
Junior Connor Monroe and senior Jordan Williams were third and fourth in the 300 hurdles (42.70 and 43.54). Kyle Covington, a senior at The Colony, was first (40.08) and Lewisville senior Quantrell Dean (42.13) was third.
The 400-relay team was second (43.13) behind The Colony (43.09), while the 800 team took third (1:32.69) behind The Colony (1:31.78) and Hebron (1:32.27). The 1,600 team (3:33.00) was fourth, with Lewisville (3:26.00), Hebron (3:31.00) and Frisco Independence (3:32.00).
Senior Timmy Wilson (5-08) was second behind Lewisville senior Daniel Rosado (5-10) in the high jump, while junior Desmond Relford (44-00) took third in the shot put. The first two spots in that event were taken by Hebron seniors Antonio Montez (51-08) and Noah Howard (44-04).
