Quietly Syaira Richardson Has Risen To 6th In The World

2017 Season: The Legacy Is On You Now

With Brandee' gone now it was time for Syaira to pick up the slack and continue Team War's winning ways. That meant that inevitably she would not only have to focus on getting more points for the team but also pick up more events. 

That is something that would scare most but for her it was just another way to prove the state wrong that she was the athlete to watch. She did just that indoors with state titles in the long jump (19-11), 300 (38.26), and 55m dash (6.99). She closed the meet out of course by anchoring the 4x4 to a state meet record of 3:54. 

Outdoors was the same story with PR's left and right and of course another two individual state titles. She won the 100 in 11.92 and broke her state record in the 400 to beat Britton Wilson in a photo finish in 53.36. She also ran on a relay and placed second in the long jump. 

After a successful NBNO she once again shocked the state and in her final race as a high schooler she broke the state record again with her 52.25 finish at USATF's. 

She closed out her high school career with seven individual state titles and multiple state records individually and on relays combined.
