Accolades continue for a pair of Mansfield Lady Tiger track athletes. Recently, the Arkansas Track Coaches Association made its presence known with a letter and 2 certificates for Lady Tigers Skylynn Harris and Sadie Roberts.
The letter informed the pair that they had been nominated by the ATCA for an award for the 2019-2020 school year. That award was based upon their performances at the class 3A indoor state track and field championships. Along with the letter were 2 individualized All-State certificates for the Mansfield performers.
Harris won the class 3A shot put at the indoor finals back in February. She was also the overall small school shot put winner with a throw of 33 feet 8.75 inches. Harris was a freshman last season when the competition was held.
Roberts, a sophomore at the time of the small school indoor track finals, won the high jump. She was the class 3A winner with a leap of 5 feet. She was the only competitor in her classification to clear the high of a bar.
The pair were on schedule for a promising outdoor season when the Covid-19 pandemic closed the door on the competition for all spring sports. In limited action, the pair had already won events in the first few outdoor meets that they had attended.
