While they won their first two meets, the Hahnville track team came in third last week. There were some first place finishers for the boys, including Brandon Singleton in the 110 meter hurdles and Bryce Robinson in the 800 and 3200 meter runs.
While they won their first two meets, the Hahnville track team came in third last week. There were some first place finishers for the boys, including Brandon Singleton in the 110 meter hurdles and Bryce Robinson in the 800 and 3200 meter runs.
Maybe it was the comet streaking overhead or maybe it was the first Friday meet, but whatever the reason, it affected both the Hahnville boys and girls track teams - and not in a good way.

At South Terrebonne High School, the boys finished the meet in the third spot with 82.5 points, 2.5 points behind second place Ellender and 23 points behind first place South Lafourche, who will be a district rival beginning this fall.

Although the team faltered, there were some bright spots to be seen. Hurdler Brandon Singleton again took first place in the 110 meter hurdles. Bryce Robinson continued his domination of the bayou region with first place finishes in the 800 meter and 3200 meter runs. Larry Boyd claimed second place in the 300 meter hurdles and the 4x400 relay team took third.

On the field side, Rickey Preston (javelin) and Lamar Foster (high jump) each finished third in their events.

The girls team finished with 39 points, 99 points away from first place Thibodaux, who will also be in the same district as the Tigers this fall. Just as the boys had some bright spots, the girls had some also. On the track, the girls 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams each scored a second place finish. In the field events, Breanne Bias finished in second place in the triple jump and Maya Gauthier brought home a third place finish in the discus.

The Hahnville girls 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams each finished second.

Emily Charles, 21, had begun to drive herself and five longtime friends from a Luling hotel to Southern California on Feb. 18 when she rear-ended a vehicle and lost control of her SUV at the intersection of Louisiana highways 3127 and 3142 near Dow Chemical Co. in Killona. Charles hit the brakes, but could not avoid clipping the back of the car.
“After that, I don’t even know what happened. We must have flipped,” Charles said.
