Bonnie Richardson was the only athlete from Rochelle, Texas who qualified for the state meet. The junior ended up winning the team title all by herself.
University Interscholastic League officials said it was the first time they can remember a single athlete winning a girls' team title.
Richardson's title march began with field events on Friday when she won the high jump (5 feet, 5 inches), placed second in the long jump (18-7) and was third in the discus (121-0).
On Saturday, she won the 200 meters in 25.03 seconds and nearly pulled off a huge upset in the 100 before finishing second (12.19) to defending champion Kendra Coleman of Santa Anna. Richardson, a junior, earned a total of 42 team points to edge team runner-up Chilton (36).
