Bonnie Richardson

posted by Jason Kottke   May 13, 2008

Bonnie Richardson, a junior from Rochelle High School in Texas, was the only woman from her school to qualify for the Texas 1A state track meet and ended up winning the team title for Rochelle…all by herself.

Richardson’s title march began with field events on Friday when she won the high jump (5 feet, 5 inches), placed second in the long jump (18-7) and was third in the discus (121-0). On Saturday, she won the 200 meters in 25.03 seconds and nearly pulled off a huge upset in the 100 before finishing second (12.19) to defending champion Kendra Coleman of Santa Anna. Richardson, a junior, earned a total of 42 team points to edge team runner-up Chilton (36).
