EDGARD — Three members of the West St. John track team qualified for the LHSAA state outdoor track & field meet being held at Louisiana State University this Friday.

Ty’Jon Monroe qualified in the 110m hurdles as well as the 300m hurdles. Monroe is the reigning 1A state champion in hurdles from 2021, and West St. John Athletic Director Greg Johnson is hopeful he will duplicate this accomplishment.

During the regional track meet held at East Jefferson High School in Metairie on April 28, Monroe finished first with a time of 14.8 in the 110m hurdles. He also placed first in the 300m hurdles with a time of 43.15.

Kharma Creecy and Timothy Bartholomew also qualified for state with second place finishes in region 3-1A during last week’s East Jefferson relays.

Creecy qualified for the discus with a throw of 83’11”, while Bartholomew qualified for the javelin with a throw of 129’.
