“It was unbelievable that we had five students qualify for the 100 metre finals and four placed first – that is incredible and certainly had people in Lindsay wondering about these guys,” Griffith wrote in a follow-up email.
Griffith said Pamplin achieved something that has not been accomplished in 18 years since the school has competed in this event. As far as she knows, there has never been an overall track champion in senior girls.
She adds Pamplin is “an awesome athlete – not just at track but volleyball and basketball too. I’m sure there will be great things happening for her at Hal High in the future,” she said.
