Archie wins two more titles

From staff reports

Thorsby sophomore Sade’ Archie won two state track and field championships last week—adding to the pair she won last year.
Archie now has claimed the first four track and field state titles in school history.
Archie won the 100-meter dash on May 1 at Birmingham-Southern College with a time of 12.4 seconds. She won the 200-meter dash with a 26.2-second time.
“With her doing it back-to-back, it just shows that she is legit,” coach Ginger Williams said. “We’re very proud of her.”
Archie’s times are both within one second of state records, goals that Archie will try to reach in her remaining two years.
Williams said she was encouraged with her entire team’s performance because many athletes recorded personal bests.
“We said, you want to be better today than you were the rest of the season, and we did that,” Williams said.
