This year, 10ths of seconds would separate event winners from non-medalists. At least in the events we contested. An example was the 400 with Rahsheed seeded 5th at 49.83 and the top entrant listed at 49.29. The top 7 each had a legitimate shot at winning. The sprint relays ended up closer than the seeds… Read More


As the season winds down, the competition heats up. Time to better those State marks or make a last ditch effort to get to States. At this point, we’ve shown all we have so this meet was a ‘sharpen-up’. To focus on other things, Shamere Dunswell (4×2) and Rahsheed Wright (4×2, 400, 4×4) both skipped… Read More


The season always goes by a lot faster than you realize. With just the Meet of Champs and States left, it really was the ‘last chance’ for some. Whether it’s a relay that hadn’t had the opportunity to go strong, or an ‘on the bubble’ mark which needed improving, this was it. It was all… Read More


“Here Comes Wissahickon!” has to be in the back of peoples minds as the post season heats up. After not really showing up on ‘rankings’ lists before Ocean Breeze (save for Ahmir Johnson’s jumping), we get a 1:57 800 from Cam , a 49.8 400 ¬†from Rahsheed followed by a strong outing at this the… Read More


Wow. That’s about all I can say about this world class ‘ track and field only’ facility. What an opportunity for all levels of athletes to get on a track like this, in a building like this. Even walking up to the building elicited comments. Once inside, a view of the ocean through the floor-to-ceiling… Read More


At this point in the season, having qualified in all the events we had a shot at, a let down is natural. Wednesday night’s Glen Mills Invite showed signs of wear and tear mentally as well as physically. Ahmir Johnson came up gimpy after his 55HH win, Shamere Dunswell’s knee has been bothering him and… Read More


Another ‘over-the-break’ meet. But for a few exceptions, a lackadaisical ¬†affair. This week, the distance medley was the race we were after. But, after a ‘not too bad’ 3:24 1200 by Cam Christopher, the next two legs put us in a big hole. Not to be denied, anchor Ben Hoyer grabbed the stick and took… Read More
