Zachary High’s Janie O’Connor was a double winner at the Sugar Bowl Invitational track & field meet Saturday at Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans.

O’Connor swept the girls sprint events, winning the 100 meters in 12.04 seconds and the 200 meters in 24.87 seconds for the Broncos, the defending Class 5A state champions.

The victories come a week after O’Connor recorded a 10th-place finish in the 60 meters at the New Balance Indoor Championships held in New York.

The junior was not the only ZHS girls winner. Frankie Griffin cleared 5 feet, 2 inches to win the high jump during Friday’s portion of the meet.

Prep notables
