Running for Lucy at State Track

Posted: Updated:
The state track meet may be over, but a gesture by the Nebraska Christian team won't likely be forgotten any time soon.  

Tara and Talia Murphy's two-year-old niece, named Lucy passed away suddenly in her sleep back in November. So the girls competed in the 4x100 meter relay with more than just strings holding their shoe together.

They, along with their teammates, wore pendants that read "Run for Lucy". 

They said, "She is someone who we all held very dear to our hearts. It's a tribute to her and a way to remember her and we just hope we made her proud." 

The girls placed ninth in the state with a run of 52.9.
