Woodland senior Lucy George clears a hurdle in the 100-meter hurdles at a 2A Greater St. Helens League track meet on  April 15 at Woodland High School. George, a Grand Canyon University track and field commit, hasn't lost an event this season - she has competed in the long jump, high jump, hurdles, javelin and shot put - and has a Division I collegiate spot locked up.
