Parkway senior Chloe Larry closed her outstanding high school athletic career in style with a victory in the Class 5A javelin in the Ochsner LHSAA Outdoor Track & Field State Meet at LSU.

Larry threw the javelin 142 feet, 3 inches on her fourth attempt. Denham Springs’ Makinley Harris was second with a 127-4. Benton senior Sadie Hamby took third with a 124-10.

Larry, who was second in the event last year, had five legal throws all of which would have been good enough to win.

The Tennessee Tech basketball signee helped Parkway win two basketball state championships and was twice the District 1-5A MVP in softball.

Hill was second in the discus with a throw of 134-0. Barbe’s Jolie Jones won with a 140-4.

Ledet cleared 5-5 3/4 in the high jump on her second attempt. Third-place Kennedy Papillion of St. Joseph’s cleared the same height on her third attempt. 

John Curtis’ Addilyn Dufrene won with a 5-7 3/4.

The Airline foursome of Rikiyah Taylor, Jaycie Wallace, Janiyah Boudreaux and Ke’Zyriah Sykes made the awards stand with a third-place finish in the 4X100 relay. They ran a 47.34. Scotlandville won with a 46.22.

Parkway senior Jayla James and Benton senior Addyson Hulett posted fourth-place finishes.

James threw the shot put 35-10 1/4. East Ascension’s Kristen Mcgirt won with a 43-6.

Hulett ran a 56.86 in the 400. Barbe’s Kennedi Burks won with a 53.44.

The Parkway foursome of Sofia Bright, Raquel Rios, Lauren Taylor and Cheyenne Olson finished sixth in the 4X800 relay in 10:05.40. St. Joseph’s won in 9:30.97.

Airline’s Wallace was seventh in the 200. Sykes was eighth in the 100.
