HARRISONBURG — Over the last four years Sabrina Hall has helped lead the Lady Cougars’ track and cross-country programs to new heights. When she first set foot on the Pulaski County High School campus as a 14-year-old in 2004, who would know that four years later she would leave as one of the greatest distance runners and one of the greatest female athletes Pulaski County and Pulaski County High School has ever seen.
This past weekend at the VHSL AA State Track and Field Championships, Hall captured two more All-State honors, as she placed third in the 3200-meter run and sixth in the 1600-meter run. Hall led the 3200-meters before finishing third as the first through fourth places were separated by only six seconds. Hall’s time in the 3200 (11:16.52) was just off of her school record that she set a few weeks ago. Hall came back Saturday and raced with the lead pack — missing a fall that took down three runners — and captured her sixth place finish. Her time in the 1600 (5:15.08) was once again just off her school record time from the Region IV meet.
During her career, Hall has captured the following honors: In cross-country she was four-time All-River Ridge District, four-time All-Region III and IV, and 2008 AA All-State. For both indoor and outdoor track she was a twenty-time All-District, twelve-time All-Region, and five-time AA All-State.
She is the school record holder in the 800-meters (2:23.5), the 1600-meters (5:13.9), the 3200-meters (11:16.25), and holds records as a member of the 4×800-meter relay (9:55), and in cross-country for 5000-meters (18:32).
This spring she signed a full scholarship to Milligan College in Johnson City, Tenn.
Four other Cougars participated in the VHSL AA State Meet this past weekend. Amber Church grabbed All-State honors with her third place showing in the 100-meter hurdles. Matt Wright, Demetrious Brown and Cam Akers all turned in great performances, but were unable to come away with any hardware. The Lady Cougars came away with a 17th place finish in the 49-team meet, finishing with 15 points. Congratulations to all the Cougar track and field members on another fine season.
