HAUGHTON — In his final regular-season meet at the Haughton Buc Relays, Lakeside senior sprinter Chris Lewis once again highlighted why he is regarded as one of the top high school sprinters in the nation.
Lewis showcased his talent by winning the 100m and 200m with personal and school-record times. Lewis ran a wind-legal fully automatic times of 10.44 and 21.08. Both times are currently the top times in the state.
In the 100m, it was a battle of last year's 5A state 100m champ Micah Larkins (Haughton) and Lewis. Lewis easily out-sprinted the Buc Senior who ran a 10.73 for second place.
In the 200m, Lewis held off a hard-charging Torian Mosby of Natchitoches-Central who ran a 21.98.
Lewis also ran an eye-popping opening leg of the Warriors' 400m relay which won its heat and finished third overall with a season-best time of 43.06. Darryl Moore, Leonardo McCarter and Maurice Moore joined Lewis on the relay.
Lewis was named Most Valuable Runner at the meet.
In the boys' field events, the Warriors had only one scorer. Sophomore Trey Owens threw a personal-best of 166' 10'' to place second in the javelin. This throw was 11 feet longer than his previous best.
In the girls' field events, senior Shanae Collins led the way for the Lady Warriors. Collins finished third in the long jump (16' 1/2") and third in the triple jump (32' 2").
Alissa Lander led the way on the track for the Lady Warriors winning the 3200 with a season-best of 12:31. She also finished fifth in the 1600 at 5:52. Collins scored the other running points with a fourth place finish in the 100m with a time of 12.93.
The next action for the Lakeside track teams will be at the District 1-2A Meet which will be held at Lee Hedges Stadium in Shreveport on Thursday, April 24. The Warrior team will go into the meet as the defending 2-AA District Champions.
