There are several top track and field programs being talked about nation wide as perennial programs. There are some that are synonymous with success dating back decades long like Long Beach Poly and Miami Northwestern.
However, things evolve and new communities and schools are created all of the time and new programs have definitely become well known and popular in the sport.
There is one program that many may be overlooked in the mix of things and that is Cypress Springs High School (Cy Springs). This weekend, Cy Springs ran the #1 4x400 time in the US at the TSU Relays with their 3:44.09. They also have the #23 4x200 time with a 1:40.77 and the #15 4x100 time nationally with their 46.85 in the 2018 season.
This weekend, Cy Springs wasn't all about relays though. They exited the Texas Southern University campus having left their mark almost all across the board.
They were able to collect several state and national top marks to add to their season standings. If the state meet were today, Cy Springs could potentially have many state meet participants and they'd be eyeing an award stand finish.
Senior Rachel Hall has played a big part of the program for the last four years. This year, her role is even bigger and that includes all three relays. Hall also checks in on the state leaderboard list with a 24.99 in the 200m time and the 400m with a 57.74.
Hall is joined by sophomore teammate Wonders Oguejiofor. This weekend, Oguejiofor had a big weekend with a 55.93 in the 400m finals at TSU. That was just the beginning of her workload over the weekend as she also ran a TX #2 800m time with her 2:12.77. She added a 5-6 high jump mark on the season and contributes on the national leading 4x400 relay.
The sprint events aren't the only events that Cy Springs is performing well in. Senior Monique Spruill is also putting in work for her team and has three events that she could potentially qualify for the sate meet in. Spruill hits the state leaderboards in the 800m with her 2:19.95 from this weekend, a 5:16.70 and in the 1600m, as well as a 11:16.22 in the 3200m. Then there are teammates Marina Talor and Katelyn Nguyen who have 5:30.22 and 5:42.46 1600m times with 12:00.78 and 12:16.36 to supplement the sprinters.
Cy Springs still checks in with the hurdles and more field events.
