St. Martin’s Episcopal School is proud to announce that freshman Harlem Berry and senior Kylar Coleman each earned first-place gold medals while competing in the 2022 LHSAA Class 1A Track & Field Championships. Berry was recognized for winning not only the boys’ 100-meter dash event, but also the 200-meter dash event, while Coleman was recognized for winning the girls’ 100-meter hurdles event.
St. Martin’s winning varsity track team, which placed in the top eleven in the state competition, traveled to LSU’s Bernie Moore Track Stadium in Baton Rouge on May 6, 2022, and walked away with the girls’ team finishing 11th and boys’ team finishing 4th overall.
The fierce competition, consisting of 34 teams, included 11 of St. Martin’s varsity track team athletes who trained diligently and participated in individual and relay events.
“Our coaching staff is extremely pleased with the superior efforts of our student athletes who always strive to perform at their best,” stated Warren Lind, the track program director at St. Martin’s Episcopal School. “They go above and beyond to ensure they are prepared for events and championships such as this one, and we couldn’t be more proud of each one of them.”
Congratulations to St. Martin’s varsity track team and its coaches on their big win!
