At the Regional Track Meet, held in Humble recently, Alyssa Noel broke two of Ennis’ long-standing track & field records on the same day of competition. Both records were previously held by former Ennis distance runner, Tori Lenz-Selvera, in the 800 and 1600 meter runs, at 2:21.99 and 5:27.92, respectively. Crushing both of these records, Noel is now the new queen of Ennis distance running.
In the 800m, Noel paced herself evenly through the race to come home with a 3rd place medal and new school record time of 2:18.77. With only two hours of rest, Noel came back to run again to place 3rd in the 1600 meter run and in another new school record time of 5:23.59.
With this success, she has qualified for the 800m run at the Texas State Track & Field Championships on May 12th in Austin. Congratulations to her on these outstanding accomplishments and good luck at the State Meet.
