For Poteau Lady Pirates track seniors Colleen Peterson and Latifah Harris, they were hoping that they would return to state in their final season to do so. And they did.
Peterson and Harris, two of the four legs of both the 800-meter and 1,600-meter relays, will get to run at the Class 5A State Meet, which will be Friday and Saturday at Yukon High School’s Miller Stadium.
The duo will be joined by Marissa Smith and Brianna Steele on the 800-meter relay, while Brittany Fox and Kandace Standridge will run with them in the 1,600-meter relay.
