To the Editor:
Ethel freshman Dejah Merritt has a simple explanation for running the 300 hurdles. “I just go,” she said. “What I do, I do my best.”
“Go” she did in winning the event at the MHSAA South State 1A meet last Saturday at Madison Central High School.
The Ethel Lady Tigers placed third in last week’s Region 3-1A Track & Field Meet, held Thursday in Ridgeland.
The boys from Ethel placed 10th in the region meet, which included participants from more than 15 schools.
Blake Wilkinson tossed a complete game to help Ethel knock off French Camp Academy 3-2 last week, earning the Tigers a division split with the Panthers.
FCA had beaten the visiting Tigers 6-3 on Tuesday before Ethel regrouped and posted a 3-2 win on Thursday.
Ethel will be represented at the boys MHSAA state powerlifting meet by five lifers, while Kosciusko will have one.
