4A Girls 400m
Jozlyn Arana of Andrews came to Austin with the fastest seed time from the regional championships, but the race was completely different from how some might have thought it would go. It was Taylor McFarland from Godley stalking the competition on her outside as she gradually made up the stagger with each of her long strides. However, on her inside another runner was doing the exact same to her. Waco Connally quarter-miler Talayssia Sanders was picking off runners herself. When they hit the 300m mark it was McFarland and Sanders pretty much even coming off the curve and the two battled over the last 100m.
In the last 50 meters, McFarland pulled ahead and won the gold with a time of 55.81, Sanders secured the silver medal with a 56.53, and Kiana Kebbi from Pearsall won the bronze with a time of 57.25.
