The Vidalia High School Indians track & field teams traveled to West Laurens High School to face off with some stiff competition last week. The Lady Indians persevered through strong winds to come home with the win as a team.


The VHS Lady Indians fought through the conditions to tally up 150 points over Jeff Davis' 144 points. The ladies brought home three individual champions with Takaiya Bacon winning the triple jump, Dreshiya Jackson winning the long jump and the 4x100m relay team of Kayden Love, Journey Clements, Zaviyana Walton, and J'Miya Hunt also took 1st place.

Georgia Meredith also had a good day with a 5 second personal best in the 3200m run, placing 2nd with a time of 12:30.


The boys continue to battle through some obstacles but managed to place 4th to West Laurens with 131 points, Dublin with 108 points, Appling with 102 points, and Vidalia with 91 points.

The boys brought home two champions in this meet with the 4x100m relay of Jaydyn Young, Deante Terrell, Jerry Roundtree, and Andre Jackson winning. Cash Driggers was the other champion as he inches closer to the school record in the 800m run. Driggers dominated the event with a time of 1:58.58.

Other solid performances were turned in by freshman Andre Jackson in the 100m, who finished 2nd with a time of 11.17 into a tough headwind, and Sophomore Jaydyn Young running a 3 second personal best in the 300, hurdles with a time of 43.50 finishing 3rd.

Coach Mandy Godbee said, “It was great to see our athletes compete in backto- back meets this week and overcome challenges with the wind and weather. They are tough resilient competitors.”

The Indians wrapped up the regular season on Tuesday of this week after presstime at Pierce County. They will now get prepared for the Region and State Meets.
