2016 Track News –
Just call them overachievers. With little experience and small numbers, this year’s senior girls track team surprised by continuing a decade of district dominance. For the tenth consecutive season, Mansfield’s girls were crowned district champions.
Projected to “just squeak by” or even worse fall for the first time in a generation; this group peaked at the right time. They won the school’s tenth straight district title by 93 points as 9 different players set personal records.
That momentum continued a week later at the Green Forest hosted Outdoor State Championships. Mansfield’s girls established 5 more personal records and gave notice they were still relevant in the pursuit of a trophy.
The Lady Tigers representing Mansfield at the state outdoor finals produced a 4th place overall team finish. Their 45 point total was only 8 points away from the State Runner-Up Trophy.
The senior high team took 5 seniors, 6 juniors, 4 sophomores, and 8 freshmen to the senior high district. From there 12 athletes qualified to state, and 1 qualified to the Meet of Champs.
Mansfield’s girls started the season with a 10th place finish at the 1A- 4A Indoor State Finals back in February.

The 2016 Female Track Athlete of the Year Award.
This Lady Tiger has qualified to the state track meet every year since the ninth grade. Over that time, her primary responsibilities have always been in the relays. Looking to boost production, she was asked this season to learn 3 new events including her first field event. Not only did she learn these, she became a district runner-up, district champion, or state champion in all three.
By accepting her new event schedule, the team’s production soared. This junior athlete was one-half point away from being the 3A Region 1 West high point winner. She qualified to state in all 3 of her new individual events plus 2 relays. At the state finals, she scored seventh in the 4x400m relay, sixth in the 100m hurdles, fourth in the high jump, and was state champion in the 300m hurdles by breaking 50 seconds for the first time.
As Mansfield’s only All-State track athlete this season, she will compete at the Meet of Champs on Saturday and the State Heptathlon the following week.
The Female Track Athlete of the Year award goes to Audrey Walker.
