Girls and Boys Track and Field Teams Win Liberty District Championships; Girls 4 x 200 Sets School Record at Millrose Games



February 9, 2019





It took a sweep to keep the streak going for the South Lakes High School boys indoor track team.


Finishing first, second and third in the shot put also took the team lead away from Herndon High and give the Seahawks its 11th consecutive Liberty District Indoor Track and Field Championship.


South Lakes finished the two-day championship, held at Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, Md., with 134.50 points. Herndon followed with 113. Washington-Lee scored 78 points for third, followed by Yorktown (51), Langley (50.50) and McLean (38).


The girls team had little difficulty in winning its eight consecutive district/conference title. They scored 176.50 points (88.50 on the first day) and were followed by Washington-Lee (90), Langley (84.50), McLean (50), Yorktown (45) and Herndon (18).


With two events left,  Herndon was up by nine points. Junior Caleb Miller, the No.1 ranked thrower in the district, won with a throw of 46-04.00. His teammates, seniors Jon Lister and Immanuel Semelfort, completed the sweep with their best throws of the season. Lister, whose personal-best was 39-03.00, threw 45-03.00 for second-place. Semelfort had a throw of 40-01.50 for third. His personal record was 35-09.00.


South Lakes dominated all four relays on Day 2 of the championships. Senior Jordan Anderson, junior Rhema Konadu, sophomore Juviannadean Mullings and freshman Jillian Howard won the girls 4x200 meter relay in 1;46.67. Seniors Nicky Napolitano, Daniel Ezidinma, Stevie Jones and junior Jackson Cooley followed and topped that performance by winning the boys 4x200 in a meet record time of 1:32.35. The previous mark of 1:33.04 was set in 2012 by SLHS.


In the 4x400 meter relay, seniors Nicole Post, Jordan Anderson and juniors Caitlyn Morris and Emily Lannen combined for a 4:07.40 for the win while Napolitano, senior Will Shapiro, junior David Ramirez and freshman Tyler Benett won the boys 4x400 in 3:36.17.

The Seahawks several individual events on Day 2:

**While the boys swept the shot put, junior Sarah Jane Brown took the top spot in the girls division with a throw of 30-03.75. Sophomore Molly Shapiro was fourth (28-03.00).

**Mullings (42.09) and Jones (36.10) won their divisions of the 300 meter dash.  Howard (43.30, 3rd), Konadu (43.65, 4th) and Post (44.10,5th) also scored for the girls’ team in that event as did Napolitano (37.65, 4th) for the boys.

**Lannen won the girls 1000 meters in 3:04.85. Morris was third (3:08.67) and senior Isabelle Gulgert finished fifth (3:11.77). Senior Calvin Warstler, who won the 3,200 meter run on Day 1, was fourth in the 1000 (2:40.01) and Ramirez finished fifth (2:40.83).

**Gulgert was also sixth in the 1,600 meters (5:31.17).

**Senior Kristen Williams (34-05.00) and Bennett (41-00.50) both finished second in their divisions of the triple jump.

**In the high jump, senior Samantha Van Haaren finished tied for third (4-10.00) in the girls division while Shapiro (5-06.00) tied for fourth and Miller (5-04.00) tied for sixth in the boys division.


The Seahawks open this year’s championships with junior Hannah Waller winning the 55 meters (7.05 prelims, 7.08 finals) and the long jump (meet record 18-05.00) on Day 1 (January 23). Senior Asher Levy-Myers won the pole vault with a school record 13-04.00 that day. Junior Mary Gregory won the 500 meter dash in 1:18.32 on Day 1.


Waller and Gregory had just return from Iceland after competing for Team USA at the Reykjavik International Games and did not run in Day 2 of districts. However, they teamed with Konadu and Mullings and ran in the NASF Invitational Girls’ 4x200 Meter Relay at the Millrose Games February 9 in New York and finished fourth (1:41.49). Waller also ran in the Millrose Foundational Junior Girls’ 300 meter dash and finished fourth with a time of 38.89.


SLHS will compete in the VHSL 6A Region D championship scheduled for February 11 and 13 at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, MD. Should inclement weather cancel the February 11 activities, the meet
will be conducted February 13-14 at the same location.
