BATON ROUGE – Alisa Lander, Eric Greene and Cody Robinson participated in two events at the 2A State Track meet held last weekend at LSU.

Each one of them ran a personal best in one of their two events.

Lander earned All-State honors by finishing third in the 3200 with a personal-best of 11:55.48. This beat her old personal best of 11:59.

Lander led most of the race but was out sprinted by Claire Vaughn of Menard and Haily Johnson of Newman in the final 50 meters. Lander’s time broke her own school record. She now holds the C.C. three mile record, the 800 record, the 1600
record, and the 3200 record. Lander also placed sixth in the 800 at 2:31.

Eric Greene grabbed 2A All-State status by finishing runner-up to Episcopal’s Alex Dunbar.

Greene ran a personal-best of 4:42 in the 1600 event, besting his old time of 4:47. Greene also ran 10:47 in the 3200 for sixth place.

Cody Robinson missed All-State honors by one place as he finished fourth in the 3200 with a personal best of 10:31. The All-State Cross Country sophomore also placed seventh in the 1600 at 4:51.

Next activity for the Lakeside distance runners will be at a distance running camp in North Carolina in July.

According to Coach Dan Grantham this team bonding camp will be a positive beginning for the 2015 Cross-Country season.
