A win in the final event of the day pushed the Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School girls past Graceville for the District 2-1A track and field title last Friday in Tallahassee.

Port St. Joe led Graceville 176-161 entering the final two events.

In the 3,200 meter run, Graceville picked up 18 points while the Lady Tiger Sharks did not have a runner, putting Graceville up 179-176 with the 4 by 400 meter relay left.

Junior Maya Robbins, who had already won the 100, 200 and long jump, joined Brooklyn Quinn, Maliyah McNair and Damari Cutler, two seventh-graders and an eighth-grader, to win the relay, with Graceville finishing third to give Port St. Joe the title 186-185.

In addition to Robbins’ wins on the track, Port St. Joe also received winning efforts from Nicole Endres in the pole vault and Michell Pryor in the shot put and discus.
