Corsicana — Davis Blooming Grove girls track MVP

What a season it has been for Blooming Grove’s three-time varsity track letter winner Karley Davis. Since her freshman year Davis has been breaking school records at BGHS. After placing first in the 100m hurdles, second in the 800m relay and third in the sprint relay at the District Meet in Reisel, she advanced on with teammates Tre Wiggins, Sydni Horner, Davisha Starling and Berni Ross to the Area Meet held in Buffalo. She placed fourth in hurdles and in the sprint relay, which helped them advanced on.

Davis made her third trip to the Regional Meet held at Tarleton State University in Stephenville. Davis broke three school records in one season.

“This is such a huge accomplishment for me, if it were not for the encouragement and support of my mom at every meet it would have been hard to do,” Davis said.

At the Blooming Grove Sports Banquet, Davis was presented with the MVP award for her accomplishments this season from coach Jody Hawkins.
