EL DORADO, Ark. (KTVE/KARD) — On Thursday, May 4, 2023, officials of the El Dorado School District announced that the girls’ track & field team of El Dorado High School was crowned as the 2023 5A state champions. According to officials, the team was also crowned state champions in 2022.

“This was a year where we weren’t expected to win it. We were coming off our first state championship in school history in 2022 and graduated a lot of great seniors that year. We knew we had a lot of good wins coming back. We had the pieces, but they had to develop and the young ladies did an excellent job all year long,” said Lady Wildcats Head Coach, John Koonce.

NBC 10 would like to congratulate the team and the school on their victory.
