Lily Garrett medals at prestigious Texas A&M Invitational

Lily Garrett of Ruston High, whose father Bob is a JHHS graduate and Jonesboro native, is the state of Louisiana’s premier girls high school Cross Country competitor. Recently she proved that she can also compete on the track as well.

The competition doesn’t hardly get any bigger or better than the annual Texas A&M Bluebonnet Invitational which routinely draws the top male and female athletes from Texas and surrounding states.

Garrett ran a 2:22.00 to take third in the 800 meters for Ruston, being the only competitor from Louisiana to score in the event. Nationally ranked, Leah Klenke of Houston St. Agnes, won the race with a time of 2:17.33
