Bulldogs News · Lady Bulldogs 5A Track and Field State Champions!


This past Thursday and Saturday at the state track meet held at BYU the Lady Bulldog Track and Field team was small in numbers, but mighty enough to win the 5A state championship by 0.5 points.  Provo High edged out first year school Farmington to secure the third ever girls state championship in track and field for Provo High.  The title came down to a nail biting finish with the 4 x 400 m relay with the four top teams all within 1.5 points.  Our girls ran a sub 4 minute relay to secure a first place finish in the race and the top spot in the standings for the track meet.  Meghan Hunter completed her high school career for the Bulldogs with 4 gold medals.  She also won the 100 m, 200 m and 400 m.  Ally Gomm won the 300 m hurdles and earned points in the 400 m as well.  Sadie Edwards earned a crucial point in the 400 m as well.  The first place 4 x 400 m relay was composed of Meghan Hunter,
Ally Gomm, Sadie Edwards and Savannah Eatough.  As can often be the case, points scored in the field events made the difference when Sophie Luke tied for 6th place to score 1.5 points.

We’re proud of our girls and congratulate them.  Go Bulldogs!

The girls drove over to the Jive dance recital to continue the celebration with teammates Sophie Luke and Saddie McGinn.

Provo placed 3 in the final of the 400 m.

Coaches and runners enjoy the top spot in state.
