Cold, windy conditions (again) hampered performances and an under-manned UM squad did little for the ‘let’s get psyched’ attitude. On the upside, about 40 kids experienced their first track meet (ever!), as we have 48 freshmen and sophomores on the squad.

Cheltenham may have graduated national-caliber talents John Lewis, Christian Brissett  and Sahir Bethea, but a newly vitalized distance crew, along with Coach Beale’s field event guidance, meant these guys would be tough to beat (on paper at least).

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.

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 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
