Where are they now?... Danette Raper Holmes

Danette Raper Holmes graduated from Perryton High School in 1986 as a track and field state champion. She is one of only five Perryton athletes to win a championship in track and field, and the only Rangerette to ever be a state champion in track. In addition to superior athleticism, Holmes was an outstanding student in the classroom as well.

There have been four Ranger state track and field champions since 1905, but Holmes stands in a class all by herself. She won the state title with a discus throw of 128 feet even in 1985. Her success in hurling the discus led her to the University of Oklahoma, where she competed on their track team for two years.
