Tanksley, THS track star, places fourth in state meet

Kischondrius Tanksley was as thrilled as could be placing fourth in shot putt competition during the Class AAA state track meet held in Albany, Ga. last weekend.

The 18-year-old junior threw a distance of 37 ft., 6 in.

"I'm very proud of her and the desire she showed at the state level," Thomson High Girls' Head Track Coach Chris Harris said. "She represented us very well."

Tanksley, a rising senior, finished first in Region 3-AAA shot putt competition. Last year, as a sophomore, in her first year as a member of the varsity track team, she finished second in region competition.

"I was glad that I placed in the state track meet," Tanksley said, noting that she already is setting her sights of a higher finish next year. "I'd like to get first place next year."
