NATCHEZ &045; The Lady Rebels were not about to let anyone walk onto their campus and take the top spot at the Adams County Christian School Invitational Track Meet away from them.
Winning all but two field events, AC held of its main threat Huntington 178-136, as the two teams were well out in front of third place Porter’s Chapel’s 78 points.
Nikki Hankins and Kim Robertson led the Lady Rebel charge with each winning at least two individual events and each acting as legs on either the first-place 800-meter relay team or the 1600-meter relay team.
