The best track and field athletes in the Mid-South Association of Independent Schools gathered at Jackson Prep in Flowood on Saturday, and Jackson Academy on Friday for field events, for the association’s annual Overall Track Meet.

Porter’s Chapel Academy’s Daniel Llopis won three medals — including the Class 3A championship in the 400 meters — and St. Aloysius senior Cati Mathews finished her high school career with a silver medal in the Class 5A girls 300 meter hurdles.

Those were only two of the Vicksburg-area athletes competing, however. Tallulah Academy, Sharkey-Issaquena and Central Hinds also had athletes in the competition. Here is a selection of photos from the meet.
