Missing Persons Report: Darien Williams – hip, Shamere Dunswell – back, Ethan Dolberry-Wescott – college visit, Andy Harman – robotics, Ben Hoyer – family matters. Potential missing: Ahmir Johnson bruised his heel during the TJ, but should be back for MOC on 2/21. With three of the four 4×2 legs missing, obviously THAT wasn’t going to… Read More

We finally get a 4×200 hitting the State Qualifying Standard (SQS)! The competition wasn’t great (we won by 4.64 seconds) but the important thing was hitting the time of 1:35.17. Shamere Dunswell (23.6) brought in a nice lead for Darien Williams and a great hand-off sent him on his way. Darien’s 22.6 was the fastest… Read More

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… Read More

The throwers shined (shown?) again! Big PRs from all three guys. Yondell Dudley led the way winning the event with 53-4.5, moving him up to # 6 WAT in or outdoors and a #7 Pa indoor ranking.   Justin Cooper, after a 4′ PR earlier in the year, added 4 MORE feet going from 40-1… Read More

We still can’t seem to get a full squad to one of these meets. Practice attendance is back, but meets?? (Missed bus, grades, college visit, Sat. detention, illness, etc.) Frustrating, as we didn’t have enough bodies to enter a novice relay, a 4×2, 4×8,  55 dash or 55 hurdles. PIAA outdoor medalist Darien Williams started… Read More

Participation continues to be a problem, this being the tail end of Christmas break. Add to that, Ethan Dolberry-Wescott was a late scratch at 60HH citing an injury, and Eric Papazian pulled a hip muscle in the first 50 meters of his 4×4 carry. Bright spots? There were a few! This week’s event of choice… Read More

Christmas and Easter breaks are a challenge during their prospective seasons, and this was no different. For our first big indoor invitational, nine ‘starters’ were missing from the line up for reasons ranging from illness, family vacations, missing paperwork, or suspension and/or discipline.  This gave opportunities to others. PR’s were more common than placings, no… Read More

    Coming off his 50-9 PR toss from last week, Yondell Dudley wasted no time proving it was for real. We looked at the 51-0 state qualifier as a possibility, but no one saw it coming this early. His 51-7.5 (#10 on the Wissahickon all-time OUTDOOR list) marks his second win in as many… Read More

  With temps outside more suited to spring track, we headed up 309 to kick off the winter season. Since it’s usually one entry per event, each week we have to decide what to attempt to qualify for post-season. The sprinters opted for the 4×2, the distance guys went individual, and the field guys went… Read More

Williams Impresses, 4×1 Team Falls Short   The pre-meet ranking hinted at the possibility of a high medal for Darien, but nothing is ever guaranteed. A tender hamstring had been bothering him for a few weeks and we’d been taking it race-by-race. The first round saw the first three heats fail to break 11.00. That included… Read More
