Another school record broken and additional postseason qualifications highlighted the two meets South Lakes High School track and field teams participated in during the first week of May.
After breaking the school record in the girls’ 4x100 meter at last month’s Penn Relays, they improved on that mark at the Liberty District Jamboree May 1 at SLHS.
Juniors Hannah Waller, Mary Gregory, sophomore Juviannadean Mullings and freshman Jillian Howard won the event in 46.86. The previous mark of 47.28 was set April 25.
In addition to the school record, Waller (12.04, 1st) and Howard (12.39, 3rd) ran 6A State Meet qualifying marks in the 100. Gregory finished fourth in the event with a 12.50, which is a 6A North Region D meet qualifying time. Senior Nicky Napolitano had a region qualifying time in winning the 400 meters in 50.74.
At the Nike Spring Invitational, SLHS put on quite a performance for visiting Seahawk track alumni at the meet, which also honored the Class of 2019.
Seniors Asher Levy-Myers and Jonny Luu dominated the boys pole vault. Levy- Myers won the event with a vault of 13-03.00 followed by Luu (12-09.00), both state-qualfiers. Senior Isabelle Gulgert also had a state-meet qualifying performance by finishing second in the 1,600 meters (5:05.62). Junior Caleb
Miller hit the state-meet mark in the discus throw with a 141-08.00 for second. He also won the shot put with a 48-03.50, a region-qualifying mark. The Seahawks dominated the sprint competition winning the:
freshmen girls 100 meters (Howard,12.47, region-qualifier) girls open 100 (junior Rhema Konadu,12.57, region qualifier).
