Mount Vernon Presbyterian’s Aundria Douglas showed plenty of promise as a freshman last year with fourth-place finishes in the 100- and 200-meter dashes and the long jump at the GISA state meet in Class AAA.

Douglas is now making her mark on the GHSA level in her sophomore season.

The Mount Vernon standout ranks first in the 100 with a personal-best time of 12.69 seconds, is second in the 200 (26.67) and sixth in the long jump (14 feet, 11 inches) among Class A private school athletes, according to the website.

Douglas is stepping to the forefront to fill the hole left by the departure of Nnenya Hailey, a Clemson signee who finished her outstanding high school career with GISA state titles in the 100 and 200 and 300 hurdles last year.

“[Aundria] had the luxury of learning under Nnenya for a year and now, she’s ready to become a great sprinter in her own right,” Mount Vernon coach Seymour Adlam said. “She’s kind of like the foundation of our girls’ team.”
