WACO — Two distance runners were the difference for The Woodlands girls track and field team this weekend as the Lady Highlanders won the Region II-5A title.

The Woodlands edged out Dallas Skyline by six points to capture the team championship at Baylor University’s Hart-Patterson Track and Field Complex, and several other area athletes qualified for the state meet to be held in Austin on May 10-11.

Major contributors to the title included Madi McLellan and Katie Willard, who won the 1,600-meter run and 800-meter run, respectively.

Willard won her race with a time of 2 minutes, 10.13 seconds, more than 3 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher. Now, she will head back to Austin to defend her state title.

“I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and you always have to keep in mind that coming back, everybody’s going to be looking at you,” she said. “Hopefully, I can get to that state meet record. Of course, the goal is just to win again and get that second straight state title.”

McLellan beat out College Park’s Katie Jensen — who qualified for state with a pair of seconds in the 3,200 (10:45.25) and 1,600 (4:54.19) — with a time of 4:53.13.

“I knew it was going to be a very competitive race,” McLellan said. “(Kingwood’s) Sandie Raines and Katie Jensen are incredible competitors.”

Raines finished third in the 1,600 (4:56.27) after winning the 3,200 in 10:26.09, which broke the regional record McLellan set last year.

The Lady Highlanders also took home the silver in the 1,600-meter relay, with Alyssa Gillespie, Kaitlynn Lindsey, Alana Brady and Lindsay Wilken crossing the finish line in 3:48.50.

While The Woodlands girls triumphed over all their opponents, the boys came away with a good showing as well, taking home a second-place team finish.

Klein Oak was the regional champion with a score of 73 points, topping the Highlanders by 16.

Once again, it was the distance runners who made the biggest difference for The Woodlands.

Brigham Hedges won both the 3,200 (9:30.01) and the 1,600 (4:17.27) and will be bringing two of his running mates to the state meet with him.

Craig Irvin qualified with a second-place finish in the 3,200 (9:32.11), while Logan Emery took the silver in the 1,600 (4:18.00).

“It’s awesome to get Logan and Craig there with me,” Hedges said. “It will be great having those guys there to compete with.”

Oak Ridge will be sending two throwers to Austin, as N’Dia Warren-Jacques and Mia Hicks captured the regional titles in the girls shot put and discus, respectively.

Warren-Jacques threw almost 4 feet farther than anyone else in the field, with a mark of 44-7¾.


“I got here with a hard work ethic and a lot of practice,” Warren-Jacques said. “I think that’s awesome that both of us are going to state. It’s actually pretty nice to have someone come with me.”

With a ticket to the state meet on the line, Hicks delivered a final throw of 138-11 to win the discus.

“I kept God in mind and prayed before I went on,” Hicks said. “It feels amazing — I can’t even describe how it feels. I just want to start crying. I’m ready to step up and compete (at state).”

Hicks also finished third in the shot (40-2½) while Warren-Jacques was sixth in the discus (120-9).

College Park’s Tristen Newman claimed a regional title with a mark of 58-7¼ in the boys shot put. The Woodlands’ Jonathan Huckins earned the second and final automatic berth to state with a throw of 52-9¼. The Highlanders’ Josh Hermsen was third (52-7½).

The Cavaliers’ Jayvon Jackson finished third in the discus with a throw of 165-6.

The Woodlands’ Max Cosculluela cleared 15 feet for a fourth-place showing in the pole vault.

The Lady Highlanders’ Ellyana Long tied for fourth in the high jump after clearing 5-2.

Oak Ridge’s Trumaine Jefferson leapt 6-2 for a sixth-place finish in the boys event.

The Woodlands’ Patrick McCoy was sixth in the triple jump (45-9¼) while Conroe’s Tay Nance was sixth in the long jump.

Patrick Carr finished fifth in the 100 (10.86) for the Highlanders.

Abby Feeney was fourth in the 100 hurdles (14.37) and seventh in the 300 hurdles (46.27) for The Woodlands while Kaylee McCarthy, Wilken, Gillespie and Lindsey were third in the 800 relay in 1:39.55.

The Lady Highlanders’ Ashley Guidot finished fifth in the 1,600 (5:11.62).

Carr, Obi Igbokwe, Chris Bell and Will Varnell clocked 1:29.35 in the 800 relay to finish seventh.

The Woodlands girls’ 400 relay team of Charity Thomas, Teesa Mpagi, Becca Vieth and Wilken finished seventh in 49.08.
