One lesson we learned from States was that no lead is safe when Ryah Hinds is running. The York senior put on the jets once again and ended her high school indoor career on a high note. Her alongside little sister Brylee Hinds and sisters Skylar Haskiell and Karley Haskiell crossed the line in 4:11.88 to win the Class 3 State title.
That's right, it was a pair of sisters winning the 4x4 at states. Occasionally you will get one pair of siblings but it almost never happens when you get two pairs of siblings, let alone on the same relay team.
The order was Brylee (66), Skyler (64), Karley (64), and Ryah (56).
Though all four ran well, Ryah Hinds was the star of that relay. She got the baton down five seconds and was able to eat up that deficit to cross the line in first. In just two laps she had to pass Western Albemarle, Heritage, and Tabb.
Her split of 56.42 was the only sub 60 split in Class 3 and was run after her individual wins in the 55m dash (7.20) and the 300m dash (39.30).
Western Albemarle took second in the race with Heritage third and Tabb fourth.
