Track star dashes to second place in indoor championships
An eighth-grade track athlete at Lexington Traditional Magnet School, Jywan George, placed second in the team-based 2019 KTCCCA Indoor State Championships – by himself! He won the 400, 800, and 1600 events and finished fourth in the 55-meter dash among middle school boys. Jywan was the only participant March 2 from Fayette County Public Schools. He also competed in the New Balance Nationals in New York City the following weekend, placing 11th in the 1-mile run (junior high). For more information, please contact Coach Kathy Broadnax.
