Records are made to be broken

D’Anna Smith breaks 44-year old track record

By DEREK LOPEZ

Littlefield junior sprinter, D’Anna Smith, recently shattered the 44-year old school record that was set in 1974 in the 200-meter dash.

The previous 200-meter dash record of 25.74 was held by Shebra Johnson. Smith set the new record of 24.44 at the District Meet three weeks ago at Tulia High School.

Smith talked about what it means to her to have her name in the Littlefield High School record books, saying, “It means everything to me. Knowing it was there for so long and that I finally broke it, is a huge accomplishment.”

PHASE ONE OF CITY POOL

The City of Littlefield is well on it’s way to achieving their goal of $1,200,000 for the start of Phase 1 to build the QUAD, the Littlefield Aquatic Center.

The Quad will be located on Phelps Avenue between the Methodist Church and Prosperity Bank. It will provide a place for recreational activities for our citizens and surrounding communities. City officials view the pool as a “Quality of Life Project” that will help Littlefield attract and retain residents.
