It's all about speed and skill this weekend. The MHSAA State Track & Field Championships are underway in Pearl with 2A, 4A, and 6A action.
The Clinton Lady Arrows won their 6th straight 6A state title. They would once again claim the 4x200 meter relay spoils while our cameras were there, Ole Miss signee Jayda Eckford running the anchor leg in the victory today.
