Maynard Jackson Hangs Tough Defending Class 3A State Title

By Russell Thomas
The Jaguars repeated as State Champs, but it wasn’t without a challenge, as they only had a 5 point lead going into the 4×400 relay. Maynard Jackson had alot of work to do on Saturday, as they were not on the old scoreboard yet, with only 14.2 points. But, they turned on the jets scoring 12 points in the 4×100 taking Silver and their B squad added a 5th. Then, Taryn O’Neal added another Gold winning the 400m in 56.49. They had to wait until the 100h for another chance to score, where Ryah Jackson placed third at 15.89 with China Waldord a stride back in 4th. The duo continued to keep the Jaguars in the hunt for a title placing 6th/7th in the 300h giving Jackson a 5-point lead going into the 4×400, where they wrapped up the title adding relay Gold in a time of 3:56.55.
