Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) Senior track athlete, Faith Novess, was just one of the girls on the De Beque girls track team to help bring home the programs first state title. It was a dominant performance but even she was surprised by the gap the Dragons had on the competition.
Novess won the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles with a new 1A record, the high jump with a new record and 2nd in the long jump. It's been something she has been working towards.
"It just shows that everything we have done for the past four years to rebuild the program has paid off and is actually working. Hopefully, everybody younger than us can see that we had to work for it so they have to work for it too" says Faith Noves.
