Bookmark and Share

Carly Carper has been impressing people on the track since she was in seventh grade. Now a sophomore, Carper added to an already long list of accomplishments over the weekend at the State Track Meet.


For some people it might just come naturally. Carper has natural speed and it's put her among the very best when it comes to track and field.


Chad Trigg says, "She's gotten a lot of kids from our school a little more excited about track. Helped put us on the map."

 

Just this year, Carper has won the 100-meter dash at the Howard Wood Relays, where she beat Jasmyne King from Rapid City. King is regarded as one of the states best in the event.

 

Carly Carper says, “She beat me last year and the day she beat me I said I'm going to beat her next year and I guess it happened."

Carper continues, "When I crossed the line it felt like everything I worked for paid off finally."

 

Let's fast-forward a month to the state track meet. Carper dominated over the weekend. She won the 100 for the fourth straight year

 

Carper says, "Winning the hundred was a really good feeling.”

 

Was the anchor for the top four by 100 relay team.

 

Carper says, "My teammates are great we're practically like a big family. We have lots of fun in practice we push each other an make each other better."

 

And she jumped the furthest in the long jump and finished second in the 200.

 

Trigg says, "Carly is amazing you see that on the track."

 

Carly has accomplished things some hope to accomplish in a high school career and she's only a sophomore.

 

Carper says, "Maybe the state title for our team would be nice too."


Well Raider fans, your Oldham-Ramona/Rutland Girls Track Team is the 2010 Class "B" State Champions, and Carley Carper is the leader that wouldn't settle for anything less.
