Records fall for NHS


Alyssa Leister did more than win two gold medals at the state track and field meet held at Mike A. Myers Stadium, University of Texas at Austin on May 9 and 10. 
Leister said, “I gave my best. I am excited about the record. I can leave with the medal and the record.”
Alyssa’s first event was in the long jump. Of the six jumps Leister scratched four times but won the gold with a jump of 17-0.25 and set a new conference record.
“My mark was not on during the run throughs. Coach [Carlton Williams] told me not to worry, that everything was under control,” she said. “I wanted to break the record and I was hoping for another 18.”
