If there was any question whether Spanish Springs junior sprinter Jessica Ozoude was the fastest girl in the state, there’s not anymore.
Ozoude won the state titles in the 100 meters, 200m and 400m on Saturday in Carson, setting two stadium records along the way.
She won the 100m in a time of 12.29 seconds and set the stadium records in the 200m (24.29) and 400m (55.35).
She accounted for 30 of the Cougars’ 40 team points – a total that was good for a fifth place tie with Green Valley. Centennial ran away with the team title, racking up 100 points – 45 points in front of runner up Palo Verde.
The Cougars’ 4x800m relay (Alexis Melendrez, Justice Best, Zoe Overton, Lauryn Massic) took fifth in a time of 10:07.41 and Kylee Stevens-Sam finished third in the shot put with a distance of 38-02.25 to round out Spanish Springs’ team scores.
Reed scored 38 points to finish seventh overall.
Junior Samantha King-Shaw won the 3200m state title with a time of 11:31.64 – nearly seven seconds clear of the entire field.
Junior Makayla Linebarger took second in the pole vault. She cleared a height of 11-06.
Senior Journey Artis and sophomore Taylor Anderson both qualified in the triple jump. Artis took third (36-00) and Anderson took fifth (35-01.75).
Reed’s 4x400m (Erika Robtoy, Ali Miller, Sarah Ebling and Anderson) and 4x100m (Anderson, Miller, Robtoy and Roxann Patterson) took fourth and fifth respectively.
Patterson finished eighth in the 100m with a time of 13.03 seconds.
