Community Champions: Running toward history; Chapin relay team qualifies for state for first time

EL PASO, Texas - It's certainly a special feeling to accomplish a goal for the first time in school history.

That's where the Chapin Huskies find themselves as for the first time the school's girls relay team qualified for state.

At the class 5A regional competition in Lubbock, the 4X400 relay team for the Huskies finished in second place.

The team's time of 3:55:90 was a new school record and was good enough to punch their ticket to state.

The four members on the team are Samahdi Foster, Sela Arevalo, Pleajai Roulhac, and Kennedy McDonald.

They'll be headed to Austin this week to compete at the UIL State Track and Field Meet.

The class 5A schools will compete Friday, May 7.

It's been a special year so far for the Huskies, and the team knows bringing home a state title would be the cherry on top of an already memorable season.

For their accomplishments this season, the 4X400 relay team from Chapin High School has been named Community Champions.

Community Champions is sponsored by Albertsons and the El Paso Community Foundation.
