After a couple of lean years, this season saw a return to prominence for the girls track and field team at Jenkins County. The team’s runner-up finish at the Region 3-AA meet was a good start, but Zandra Lake gave the Lady War Eagles an even better finish to the season as she took the individual title in the triple jump at the GHSA state meet at Albany last weekend. “Zandra has really been great for us,” said Jenkins County coach Charley Waters.
