Percie Lyons, an 11th-grader, received first place in the Girls 800, 1,500 and 3,000-Meter Run Varsity events during the 2014 Oahu Interscholastic Association Varsity Eastern Division Track Championship at Kaiser High School in Honolulu, April 5. The 17-year-old athlete ran 2 minutes, 34.36 seconds in the 800-meter, 5 minutes, 13.59 seconds in the 1,500-meter and 11 minutes, 41.46 seconds in the 3,000-meter. Although she was happy with her scores, Lyons said she eventually hopes to bring her 1,500-meter time down to 5 minutes, 8 seconds. “The girls got second overall and the boys got first,” she said. “I was proud of our team for coming together and doing that (well).” Lyons competed in the April 17 Punahou Relays and will also compete in the OIA Varsity Championships May 1 and 3. She is already qualified to compete in the Hawaii High School Athletic Association Championship. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Kristen Wong)
