Zanaisha Turner, junior at PHS, is no stranger to State Championships. On May 6, 2016, Zanaisha will compete for her second state championship in triple jump. She will also vie to win the championship in long jump. Since she has gone undefeated in the triple jump for three years, her goal is to continue being undefeated until she graduates May 2017. She is the district, regional, and south gold medalist in triple jump. She is also the silver medalist in long jump as well. She is the MVP of the girls track team scoring over 100 points this season. She helped to lead to varsity to girls to a second place finish in district, a third place finish in regionals, and a fourth place finish in South State!!
The PHS Girls’ Track team has outshined their opponent the entire 2016 season. The girls came in 2nd place out of twelve teams in the 7-4A District meet at McComb High School in Early April.
Regionals, which took place April 23rd at Pass Christian High School, brought the girls a 3rd place spot out of 24 teams.
Saturday, April 30th, the girls traveled back to Pass Christian to compete in the South State Meet. Out of the 21 teams competing, PHS finished 4th.
The team won a slew of impressive titles at competitions during the month of April:
Janelle Johnson- 3200M- 1st in District; 2nd in Regionals and South State
Janelle Johnson- 1600M- 2nd in Regionals and South State
Tique Henry- Triple Jump- 4th in District, Regionals and South State

Zanaisha Turner, the 7-4A 2015 State Champion in the triple jump, has remained undefeated in this category all season. She is currently the triple jump champion in District, Regionals, and the South State Championship. We are looking for Zanaisha to be our back to back State Champion after the state competition this weekend..
