Track and Field

Call it another well deserved honor for recent Port St. Joe grad Kayla Parker! She's been named the Gatorade Florida Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year. And why not, all she did was rack up 4 individual state titles in the 100 hurdles, the 100 and 200 meters, and the long jump. She helped St. Joe win yet another team state championship....and oh by the way, she carried a 3-point-8 grade point average. The Gatorade award given to honor both athletic and academic achievement. All totalled, 5-foot 6-inch Kayla Parker
won 12 individual state titles. Amazing, she is by the way, bound for the University of Kentucky this Summer on a track scholarship.
