Friday – 4×100 A few weeks ago, we thought we’d let an all-senior squad take the track to let some guys experience Penn even though they may not be top four on the team. Unless you’re fast enough to make one of the finals or poised to run a fast ‘districts’ type time, this race… Read More

With the meet schedule becoming increasingly crowded, the competition gets a little diluted sometimes with fewer teams going to more and more meets. This was the case at this year’s relays. As some of our top guys were a little nicked up, and being able to enter up to three teams per event, we gave… Read More

Wins against Cheltenham 91-59 and Upper Moreland 123-20 takes us closer to another championship season but it won’t be without its challenges. With some major players out with nagging injuries others would have to step up to fill the void. Sam Kane (10.9 PR) and Shamere Dunswell (11.0, 22.6 PR) covered the short sprints while… Read More

When the meet director came walking over to us with a trophy, I asked him what it was for. He said “It’s yours”. “What do you mean?” I said. ” You won the team title!” TEAM TITLE! (Who knew?) Usually, if a team title is at stake, one might work a line up to score… Read More

What should have been a closely contested meet turned into a rout due to some serious ‘stepping-up’ by our guys along with some injuries and no-shows by their guys. The Cards lost two good 400/800 guys due to injury towards the end of indoors and are still out, a third is back but not 100%,… Read More

Another meet, another day with less than ideal conditions with temps in the 40’s and lots of wind. (And they’re calling for heavy thunderstorms for our meet with UD on Tuesday! Gonna be one of those springs…..). This meet is not that well attended with teams opting for bigger and better competition elsewhere but it… Read More

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
