While some local track teams have serious star power, see the Haughton boys’ and C.E. Byrd girls’ teams, the Captain Shreve Lady Gators have something that the others don’t. It can be found in the trophy case of the Kings Highway school– four shiny gold meet champion trophies.
Shreve started the year by winning the DeRidder Relays. The Lady Gators followed that with wins at the Huntington Raider Relays and the Woodlawn Knight Relays. Thursday they won their own meet.
As head coach Marita Hunt drove home after hosting the Captain Shreve Gator Relays she didn’t know much about how well her team performed. She was too busy running the meet. The one thing that she did know is that the first-place trophy she ordered for the meet was riding shotgun.
