The King and Queen of the season have to be Brian Smith of Greece Athena and Erica Williams of Batavia and they continued their amazing seasons tonight!
I don’t know for certain, but I would imagine that it may be unprecedented that one man stayed undefeated in both the 55M and 300M Dash, but Smith has done it this season as well as breaking the Section V record in the 300M twice. While Smith dominated the 300M, he had to pull out all the stops every race for his 55M wins which were all very close, usually from his own teammate Terrance Harley, but tonight it would be Marion’s Brandon Vanderbrook who would almost catch him.
Erica Smith completely dominated the womens shot put this winter with winning margins generally in the 5’-6’ range and setting the Section V record 3 times. Tonight Rush Henrietta’s Ayanna Sanchez-Jones heaved a huge 37 to actually get within less than 4’ of Smith.
The race of the night has to be the womens 55M Dash as Spencerport’s Maddie Kopp busted it out tonight and PR’d and outleaned the Edison Tech dynamic duo of Demonica Stanley and Tanisha Love (I bet they didn’t see that coming). Kopp got beat again by Aquinas Camaria Long in the 300M but both girls lowered their times into national level performances.
Victoria Shaffer of Rush Henrietta remained undefeated in the high jump, but she just got it on misses tonight against Marion’s Mackenzie Sturtz.
Karmen Auble of Warsaw also remained undefeated in the pole vault and got the same push from Gabrielle Sherwood of Livonia whom she just beat on misses.
Eleonore Grant of Red Creek finished an undefeated Section V season in the triple jump.
Ryan Cribbin of West Irondequoit finally hit 50’ in the shot!
Leila Mantilla of Penfield finished a dominating season winning the 1500M.
Wilson Magnet’s Ismail El-Amin may add to his 300M State Championship last year with a long jump championship this year, teammate Donovan Wallace will be in the running too.
Rush’s Chauncey Scissum proved last week was no fluke and boomed another huge triple jump. Right on his heels was a FRESHMEN from Webster Schroeder, Jimmy Shih.
Rush Henrietta’s Burke brothers will both be at states as will Canandaigua’s McCormick sisters.
A lot of PR’s in the long and triple for both the girls and boys.
And if you were expecting Rush to dominate the boys 4x800, Canandaigua to dominate the girls 4x800 and Edison Tech to send two sprint relays to states, you were right!
