From Star staff reports
WINCHESTER — Handley senior track and field athlete Lisa Meneau will compete for the University of Maryland on a partial scholarship next year, according to Handley head coach Mike McKiernan.
Meneau was the Group AA 300-meter state champion last year with a time of 43.51 seconds, just 0.08 seconds behind the state record set by former Handley star Ayla Smith, an All-American at the University of Virginia and a 2012 Olympic Trials qualifier.
Meneau was second in the 100 hurdles at the state meet and ran on Handley’s 4x100 state championship relay team to help the Judges to the team state title.
“That was the No. 1 place for her,” McKiernan said. “She really likes the coaching staff and the girls, and just the whole experience at Maryland.”
