Jhane King, a junior at Timber Creek High School, is most notably one of the track stars on the girls’ track team.
She has done it all – from running in indoor meets such as the New Balance Indoor Nationals, Arkansas High School Invitational, and the Texas A&M High School Invitational, to winning this year’s Area meet in the 100 dash, 200 dash, and 400 dash.
How does she do it? Like many athletes, rest is important.
“After a race I just try to rest my legs for a little bit, and stay out of the sun, I eat a peanut butter jelly sandwich, then I stretch,” King said in an interview with a Texas Mile Split reporter shortly after a race.
King has noticeably improved her times with quite impressive measures. She cut her time by approximately three seconds for 400 M Dash, according to Dyestat.com. Not only has she improved her 400 time, she has improved in the 100 and 200 as well.
With hard work, dedication, and belief in herself, King placed second overall at the Regional meet on May 1, which led her to making the state meet.
She hopes to beat the clock in the upcoming state meet on May 15 and 16, hosted at University of Texas.
King is one of three Timber Creek track and field members headed to the state level. Chase Dennis and Desiree Coston also advanced to the next stage.
