LAKEWOOD - After missing all of her junior track and field season due to injury, Sierra's Gya’ni Sami arrived back on the state podium Thursday in style.

Sami, whose parents are from the Samoan islands, donned a traditional ie lavalava wrap matching her Sierra cardinal and gold on the state podium as she received a second-place 4A discus medal.

“It was kind of a bet,” Sami said, “My brother (Jalen) was like, ‘I bet you won’t go up there and wear the wrap.’”
