By John Nepolitan / May 13, 2008. At first glance the news that Rochelle High School won the 1A Texas title it was big, but then somebody has to win. The real story is how the "team" went about it. Then Rochelle representation at the State championship was a team of
one person: Bonnie Richardson. By the end of the two day meet
Richardson had won the high jump (5'5"), placed 2nd in the
long jump (18' 7"), third in the discus (121' 0"), won the 200
(25.03) and finished 2nd in the 100(12.19) she had amassed 42 points---6 more then runner-up Chilton. As far as anybody could recall it was the 1st time a single female athlete had alone won a state team title in Texas, but it was last done on the boys side in the 1970's.

For her outstanding performance, Bonnie Richardson, has
been named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week for the week
of May 12th. American Track & Field - Athletes Only magazine will
recognize an outstanding performance each week by
American high school and college athletes during the 2007
