The bad news is this week’s version of our ‘missing persons’ report: High Jumper Max Davies – sore foot and back, sprinter Shamere Dunswell – sore back, sprinter Darien Williams – hamstring, Triple Jumper Ahmir Johnson – family trip, distance guy Andy Harman – Robotics, distance guy Cam Christopher – ?.
The good news is this week’s ‘re-appearing persons’ report: Rahsheed Wright, who burst on the scene late last spring with consecutive 50 point 400’s to rank #3 state-wide for freshmen, had his debut on Saturday. He didn’t disappoint. Not sure of his fitness, he sat in third at the break, then hit the gas at the 200, tracked the leader down the backstretch and hauled him in heading for home. His 52.85 win (MOC) bodes well for fast times down the road.
Lukas Marselis had to shut it down for a few weeks dealing with mono, so we were bringing him back slowly. He went into the mile to ‘see how he felt’, he apparently felt pretty good. He stuck with the leaders as long as he could, his health set-back not showing until 300 to go. 4:42.22 for third place is an indoor PR and would be a good early outdoor time.
Yondell Dudley looks like the big dog in the Philly area, again having the best toss in either division at 52-1. Ethan Dolberry Wescott’s 23.89 200 won his heat and placed him 4th.
