The boys team was expected to do well at the SMAC track and field championship but not many expected what happened. Nearly everyone who competed scored. The team scored in every event but one. With at total of 103.5 points which is nearly 20 points ahead of second, the boys won the conference meet for the first time since the SMAC was established in 2001. Nolan Tribu, Myles Baker, and Elijah Thompson split a point with Dustin Keltsch in the 4×800 which gave Dustin 3pts on the day. Bill Bowser, Kenny Walker, Jonathan White, Elijah Anderson, David Wilson, Abraham Konjoh, Darrell Mabon, and DeAndre Worthy all contributed to the win with significant points. Marshawn Bell’s 13pts were big in the throws. Stephen Spikes scored in all 4 of his events for 10.25pts. The two biggest scorers were Joe Meyers and Nate White. Joe won both the 1600 and 3200 with a personal best in the mile for 20pts. Nate White won the 100 and also scored in his other 3 events for a total of 20.5pts. Congratulate these 19 young men such a great collective performance.

It was a day of ups and downs at the SMAC track and field Championship this past weekend. Slightly lower than expected, the girl’s team finished tied for 6th with 54 points. The scorers were Annaliese Bol and Ashley Ketsch with 0.5pt each, Jasmine Reid with 1.5pts, Madisyn Caldwell with 2pts, Ebony Battle, Lucyma Konjoh, and Kendal Sloan with 3pts, Ella Schnell with 3.5pts, Samantha Vandepol with 5pts, Joy Hart with 6pts, Breonia Robinson with 11.5pts and Emily Holtz with 14.5pts. With many placing 9th and 10th, just out of points, and being so young, the future is bright for next year.
