The Clinton Lady Maroons track team brought home their first ever conference track title last Friday in Tuscola at the Central Illinois Conference meet, now it's off to Sectionals.
Coach Rachel Lyons says the goal from the start of the year was to get that conference title and start filling up the banner in the high school gym.
In Tuscola, Lyons says at the conference meet there were several personal bests and everyone took to heart that each finish meant something.
The Lady Maroons competed at Sectionals at Mattoon Thursday afternoon. Lyons indicates the top two or qualifying time advances to the State meet. She notes there is no team advancements at the Sectional, only individuals.
Sophomore Claudia Workman finished second in the shot put and freshman Payne Turney finished second in the 800-meter run.
The Lady Maroons finished 8th at the Mattoon Sectional with a team score of 29.
