I kinda miss the crappy weather…..NOT! A clear but chilly (high of 53-55) day brought out the best in the kids with no less than 26 personal bests on the track and several more in the field. We also got to see some new faces with Archbishop Carrol, Penncrest and Marple-Newtown joining the frey. The PR-fest got started with the 1st place sprint medley as Shamere Dunswell, moving up to 400, split an easy 52.8 and Rahsheed Wright cruised an uncontested 2:05.6 800 anchor. Both 200 legs (Robert Wilson 23.6 and Matt Flancer 23.7) chipped in with bests. The ‘B’ and ‘C’ squads had an additional 5 PRs among them.

Our hurdlers got into the PR act with a 1-2 finish – Liam Davies and Christian McCarry going 15.70 and 16.29 respectively.

The next 2 events, 4×200 (1st place) and 4×800 (2nd place) had all 8 ‘A’ members hitting lifetimes! (see splits below).

We divided the 4×4 talent so ‘A’ and ‘B’ could battle each other (rather than the competition) to see if anyone would ‘break out’. There weren’t any “wow!”s, but some big improvements here none the less. Mark Futch cut a full 2.5 seconds, and Bobby McKnight dropped 1.3. The match-up worked great as anchors Futch and Davies hit the line almost together.

In the field, we got three vaulters over 11-0 for the season, McCarry continued his great day with a 42-6 TJ win and Ahmir Johnson tried his leg with a jog-and-hop 41-8.5 for second place.
