The Mansfield senior girls display their 2022 ATCA Indoor Track and Field State Championship trophy on the campus of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.

The wait is over! After a long string of production delays, the 2022 Indoor State Track Championship Rings have finally arrived. Delivered to Mansfield High School just this week, the symbols celebrating the school’s most recent track and field accomplishment are ready for distribution.

Plans are being made for a reception to be held in honor of the MHS Lady Tiger Track team and to distribute the championship rings. The informal gathering will be held at the MHS cafeteria on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at 6:00 PM to introduce the players and staff responsible for winning the school’s 25th overall state championship.

Seasoned runners off the Mansfield track team helped the school to 1 indoor state track title, and 2 cross country state runner-up finishes in the past two years. Pictured are Darby Jones, Katlynn Moore, Faith Rainwater, Jadelynn Wood, McKenzie Griffin, and Hope Rainwater.

Family, friends, and fans of the program are encouraged to join the school’s newest champs by attending the celebration. 

Light refreshments will be served. A short DVD production featuring player accomplishments will be broadcast. Finally, each of the individual players off the 16 player roster will be presented their much anticipated rewards.  

Mansfield won the class 1A-2A Arkansas Track Coaches Association State Indoor Track and Field Championship back in February. Members of the team collectively scored 183 points to outdistance their nearest competition by 65 points and win the title.

The Lady Tiger’s most recent state track trophy is the program’s 13th such award. Throughout the history of the Mansfield senior girls track team, eight different times they have won the indoor state title. Five different times they have won the outdoor state title.

Executive producers involved in the team’s success this past season included West Fraser, Chambers Bank, Today’s Bank, Roger Thompson of Farm Bureau Insurance, and the Mansfield Track Boosters. Hopes are that representatives of each will be in attendance and assist in the presentation.

Mansfield’s 2022 senior girls indoor track roster included seniors Shelby Cole, McKenzie Griffin, Darby Jones, Katlynn Moore, Faith Rainwater, and Hope Rainwater; juniors Seven Sanderson and Jadelynn Wood; and freshmen Addie Bowman Stover, Summer Frazier, Kaylie Lowery, Ashley Martin, Azlynn Stover, Trinity Triska, Carter Whiley, and Laney Wood.

Mansfield’s track coaches this past season included Ethan Bowman, Josh Brown, and John Mackey.
