The distance running tandem for the Winder-Barrow High School Lady Bulldoggs competed on the big stage last week in Albany at the state track meet.
Whitley Kennedy, Amanda Cope and Caitlin Connell each completed their 2012 seasons with quality showings at the AAAA state meet. Cope (11:46.94) was 11th in the 3,200-meter run while teammate Connell was 13th (11:52.54) in the event. Connell has now completed her standout WBHS career and will run for Kennesaw State next season.
Kennedy, competing in the 800-meter dash, was 10th in the event in 2:24.03. She was less than three seconds from eighth place, which was needed to reach the finals.
