Parker wins third state title


Noelle Parker made history for Whitewater High School Thursday.

In the GHSA state track and field meet at Hugh Mills Stadium in Albany, the senior became the Wildcats’ first-ever three-time state champion and set a state record in the process.

She did it in the shot put, with a launch of 46 feet, 9 inches.

Parker won two AAAAA state titles in the event before this year’s AAAA crown.

She will be attending Jacksonville University in Florida on a full track and field scholarship.
