Pineville, LA For the third straight year Louisiana College track and field made program history at the American
Southwest Conference championship meet. After titles in the high jump, long jump, and javelin the last
two seasons, the Wildcats earned their first track titles, both in an individual event and team events.
Senior runner Mysherie Johnson took home LC's first track conference championship in any event on
Saturday afternoon. After qualifying third overall on Friday, Johnson took home the title in the 400
meters on Saturday with a time of 57.63. The mark was over two second faster than her qualifier and
almost a full second faster than her nearest competitor.
The Marksville native wasn't done helping the Wildcats make history on the track either, as she was a
member of the women's 4x400 meter relay team that also took home the conference championship.
Johnson, along with Essence Alexander, Rami Mitchell, and Qwaniqua Howard took the top spot as the
first women's and first relay team to earn a conference meet top finish with a time of 4:02.37.
