Local Sports

JOPLIN, Mo. — Not one, not two, not even three, but Joplin High School’s Camryn Ledford has earned four state medals — this season alone.

The junior para athlete has collected seven state medals over the course of her high school career and owns at least two records in her respective events. Ledford medaled in the 800m, 200m and para discus throw in the Class 5 state track meet this past weekend.

Ledford is now training to compete in national meets this summer where she’ll be competing against other athletes from across the country.
