LUBBOCK â€” After making her first trip to state as a junior, Jayci Shelton is going back â€” this time in both hurdles â€” to Austin her senior year after a clean sweep at regionals on Tuesday.
The state meet, scheduled for May 13-14 at Mike A. Myers Stadium on the University of Texas campus, gives Shelton another shot at matching her older sister Morganâ€™s 2009 accomplishment of winning a first-place gold medal in the hurdles. Jayci was fifth at state last year in the 300 hurdles, and gets to compete not only in that event again later this month but in the 100 hurdles as well.
Students completing grades 1-7 are invited to attend a Lady Mustang Basketball Camp set for June 6-9 at the Sweet-water Middle School gym, which is located on 305 Lamar Street.

The goal of the camp is to improve playersâ€™ skills in basket-ball through instruction in individual skills and fun team competitions.
