Scott work in the hurdles helps Lady Hornets finish second
HOT SPRINGS — Kayla Scott, ranked third in the state in the hurdles, won both 100 and 300-meter events as the Bryant Lady Hornets took second place in the team standings at the Lakeside Ram Relays on Thursday.
The Lady Hornets piled up 119.5 points to finish second to Conway (180) and just ahead of Lake Hamilton (112.5) in the 13-team field. Vilonia was a distant fourth with 56 points.
“We are continuing to make great strides and improve technique and performances daily,” said Lady Hornets coach Keith Dale. “Today I was more concerned with assessing the overall condition of the girls after coming back from spring break as well as evaluating a few new techniques to see how effective they are during competition.
“I was pleased with our overall performance,” he added. “We had some great performances and are still showing improvements. There are still many areas we need to improve in but we still have time to accomplish this goal. Hopefully, by conference, we will be full force after healing up from all of the minor injuries that have occurred this season.”
The Lady Hornets will compete again next week on Tuesday at Cabot followed by the Cyclone Relays in Russellville on Friday.
Scott’s winning time in the 100 hurdles was 16.58. Her teammate Cassie Ray was second at 17.65.
