Butte's McLeod named Gatorade girls track athlete of the year


Butte High School's Erika McLeod dominated on the track in her senior season and was recognized for it on Thursday.

McLeod was named Montana's Gatorade girls track athlete of the year on Thursday morning.

The Butte star won four individual titles at the class 'AA' state track meet in Great Falls this year. McLeod also went undefeated in the 300 meter hurdles and the long jump in her senior season.

McLeod has signed with the University of Montana and will run for the track team this fall.
