BIRMINGHAM- James Clemens led the contingency of athletes from local schools at the 23rd annual AHSAA Indoor Track State Meet held in Birmingham. The boys team from James Clemens had the highest finish ever by a Madison City School claiming third place out of 32 teams.

Three additional athletes from the four local schools each won a state championship. Those included Jasmyne Rochelle from Bob Jones who took the high jump competition (5-foot-4-inch), Alijah Vaughn of Sparkman won the 60m dash (6.84) and Madison Academy’s Selano Thomas was first in the boys 60m dash (7.20) among Class 1A-3A action.
