Sims, HP Girls Start Strong in Coppell

After inclement weather canceled two consecutive meets, including the annual Tracy Wills Invitational, Highland Park finally got its season back on track over the weekend.

The Lady Scots finished third in the varsity team standings after sprinting to some medals at the Coppell Relays on Saturday.

Meredith Sims won the 100 meters with a time of 12.25 seconds, and HP took first place in the 4×100 and 4×200 relays. Cameron Fawcett placed second in the 1,600.

In boys events, HP’s Will Agouridis won the 300 hurdles, while Luke Martin was third in the 110 hurdles. Will Huff took bronze in the high jump.

The belated start to the bulk of the season means that the HP girls will compete only four times prior to the District 13-5A meet in late March. Next up, the Lady Scots will head to the Lovejoy Invitational on March 6.
