(May 7, 2013) -- Two years ago, Midway's Annie Rhodes felt the exhilaration of winning a state championship.
A year ago, she felt the agony of missing out on a repeat gold.
Now in her senior season, the future Baylor Bear will aim for a second state title in the pole vault, at the State Track & Field Meet in Austin Friday and Saturday. Rhodes battled through an ankle injury in the area and regional meet to qualify for the state meet.
"That would be great to say I came back from this injury and say I got first again my senior year," said the Midway senior. "That would just be icing on the cake this season. But if not, I'm still going to look back at, no regrets, and that I had a good season anyway."
Rhodes will compete in the 5A pole vault event Saturday, May 4, at 2:00 p.m.
