Coffee County’s Ta’Neesa Buchanan fell short of qualifying for the 400-meter finals in the state track meet Wednesday, but she reached her goal of ending her high school career with a personal best time.

Buchanan, a Central High School senior, finished 13th of 16 participants in the state championship preliminaries with a time of 1:00.06.

“I feel good about it it because that’s what I planned to do–to beat my personal record,” Buchanan said.
