The Alabama Independent School Association track and field season crossed the finish line on Thursday at Memorial Stadium.

The AISA crowned its track and field champions on Thursday in day two of its state meet.

The Lee-Scott Academy boys and girls teams each captured overall championships.

The Lee-Scott girls finished with 110 points, while Tuscaloosa Academy finished second with 79 points, and Wilcox Academy finished third with 66 points.

For the boys, Lee Scott finished with 136 points, Evangel Christian finished second with 75 points, and Tuscaloosa Academy finished third with 74 points.

Chambers Academy won the girls Class 1A title, while Edgewood Academy won the Class 1A boys title.

Wilcox Academy took the Class 2A girls title and Restoration Academy won the boys 2A title.

Escambia Academy’s Mikayla Spruill was named the girls most outstanding player, while Evangel Christian’s Jordan Sanders was named the boys most outstanding player.

The hosts Morgan Academy finished sixth overall in the girls division with 33 points.

Randy Skipper, executive director of the Alabama Independent School Association, said the state meet went great.

“I think it’s gone very well. Yesterday seemed to move a little slower, but today moved great. All the kids did a great job and I’m very proud of them,” Skipper said. “We always like to get all the schools together any time we can, but this is especially good because more schools are involved in this track meet than any of the other state events that we have, so it’s really a great time for everyone in the association to get together. It’s been a great success.”

Skipper said Selma did a great job of hosting the AISA state meet once more, and he’s looking forward to future championship events.

“Selma’s done outstanding. Mayor [George] Evans stopped by this morning, and we appreciate what he and the city of Selma does for AISA,” Skipper said. “We’re looking forward to coming back next year.”
