Cohen sophomore, Tyrell Garrett, took home 1st place in long jump, and Cohen junior, Diamond Benoit not only received MVP honors but finished 1st in the 100M, 200M, and 400M races.
Coach Benjamin Powell, led the boys track and field team to an equally impressive finish at the District Track Meet resulting in one overall MVP honor and five (5) first place finishes. Cohen senior, D’errick Smith, had a stellar season and his performances at both the district and regional meets qualified him for an appearance at the 2018 LHSAA/Allstate Sugarbowl Track and Field competition. Smtih was the only Hornet to qualify for the state track meet and he did not disappoint. Smith took home 3rd place in the 400 meter dash with a time of 49.57.
