“I am super excited for Cam,” said Elizabethton track and field coach Leslee Bradley. “We were talking about her progression through her career. Getting here your sophomore year, you are just big-eyed and not knowing what to expect. The expectations of being here after the first time is about making it back. I am proud of Camryn for being able to do that.

“Being in a different division this year with the bigger schools made the path harder, but I am proud of Camryn for getting through to state for a final time,” added Bradley.

Koroma wasn’t too thrilled with her performance Thursday.

“I do not feel great about today,” said Koroma. “I am grateful for the chance to be here. I could have done better.”

Koroma was joined by teammate Jasmine Roberts who was in Murfreesboro to compete in the shot put. Roberts ended up in 11th with a 35-07 toss.

“We knew that starting the season out it was going to take a lot of work to get here,” said Bradley. “When you are competing with the biggest schools in the state, it can be tough. So just getting here, I am really proud of Jasmine.”

Thursday made Roberts’ second-straight state trip.
