Since 1965, this meet has been the culmination of the indoor season for Delaware Valley schools. Back in the day, indoors was the only chance the PIAA had to show their stuff vs. the Public League, Catholic League and the Privates. Even with the merger, we won’t see these guys again until outdoor States, as… Read More

The way this indoor season’s been going, the ‘Last Chance’ was starting to look like the last chance. Various and sundry injuries, as well as hi-jinks and shenanigans, have prevented us from reaching many of our pre-season goals. Those that have been sleeping on Wissahickon woke up Friday night. There were many notable performances but… Read More

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
