BATON ROUGE, La. (KPLC) -Southwest Louisiana racked up over the weekend at the 2022 LHSAA Outdoor Track & Field State Meet in Baton Rouge. The area brought home 35 individual state championships from 19 different schools and one team title.

The St. Louis Lady Saints continued their track dynasty taking home their fifth straight track and field title. The Saints won the 2020 Indoor title before COVID-19 canceled the outdoor meet and have since, won both the indoor and outdoor titles the last two seasons. The Lady Saints title run included individual championships in 300 hurdles, 4x200 meter relay, 1600, 3200, discus throw, high jump, long jump and triple jump.

For her efforts, St. Louis’ Ella Segura was named the Class 3A Outstanding Athlete after taking home a pair of state titles (1600, 3200) and posting another two top-four finishes.

In Class 2A, Rosepine’s 4×800 relay team broke the class record with a time of 9:58.82. The new mark surpassed Newman’s time of 10:02.02 set in 2021.

Segura was one of five local athletes to bring home multiple titles with two others also hailing from St. Louis. Tia Reder took home the Long jump and triple jump title while also finishing runner-up in the 4x100 relay. Fellow Lady Saint Myca Trail, a two-time basketball champion, also took home two titles including the high jump and the 4x200 relay.

LCCP’s Jayla Mason was the only local athlete to win three events as she won the 400 and 200-meter dashes along with anchoring the 4x400 meter relay.

South Cameron’s Chad LaPoint was the area’s only male athlete to win multiple titles as he brought home the Class C long jump and 110 hurdles titles. He also finished top-four in the high jump and 4x100 meter relay.
