North Vermilion's LeBlanc new queen of hurdles

Anna LeBlanc, a junior at North Vermilion, is not afraid of a challenge. She thrives on it.
Last year when Abbeville and Erath had runners in the 100-meter hurdles, she knew she would probably never win because they were better hurdlers. Last track season she competed against Anne Marie Broussard of Abbeville and Troynae Walker of Erath, who were seniors that could fly over the hurdles. In all of those races, LeBlanc had to settle for third place.
