When you win it you gotta ‘put a ring on it’



Kiara Binns, Ta’aliya Booker, Tycoriah Danner, and Secoriah Danner received their state championship rings last Friday in the Washington-Wilkes Comprehensive High School media center where Principal Robert Wheeler praised them eloquently for not only their athletic prowess on the track field but also for their excellence in the classroom and as inspirational leaders in the school. In May, the girls won the Georgia Class A state championship in the 4x100 relay with the time of 48.18 which was good enough for them to have been state champions also in Class AA and AAA, according to their track coach, T.C. Jay. Both Wheeler and Jay expressed their pride in the girls and all in attendance agreed that they are hoping for a repeat performance in the spring of this school year. At the state meet last May, Tycoriah Danner also won the state championship in the 100-meter dash with her time of 12.07, a new school record.
