Track and Field Teams Win Liberty District Championships



May 16, 2019




Dominating performances in sprints, distance and field events help the South Lakes High School track and field teams successfully defend their Liberty District Championships May 15 at SLHS.


Led by junior Hannah Waller and senior Isabelle Gulgert, the girls team scored 250.50 points to win its ninth consecutive title. Washington-Lee finished second (87.50), Langley was third (61) followed by McLean (53), Yorktown (43) and Herndon (24).


Juniors Jackson Cooley and Caleb Miller as well as seniors Asher Levy-Myers and Nicky Napolitano helped the boys team score 123 points and win its sixth straight title. Yorktown earned 98 points for second and Herndon finished third with 94 points. Langley was fourth (88), followed by Washington-Lee (77) and McLean (44).


Waller won every event she competed in — and a couple of them in record fashion. 


She started Day 1 of the championship winning the triple jump in 37-03.00. Teammate senior Kristen Willliams was second (34-11.00). Waller began the second day of competition winning the long jump with a school and district meet record performance of 18-07.50. The previous school record of 18-04.25 was set by Linda Hicks in 1991. Waller broke the meet record of 18-02.00 that she set at last year’s championship meet.


On the track, Waller lead a sweep of the 100 meters winning the event in 12.08 and breaking the meet record of 12.09 that she set in 2017 championship meet. Junior Rhema Konadu was second (12.60) and freshman Jillian Howard finished third (12.64).


Waller then did the same in the 200 meters leading another SLHS sweep. Her winning time of 24.55 broke her 2018 meet record of 24.79. Sophomore Juviannadean Mullings was second (24.93), junior Mary Gregory was third (25.47) followed by Howard (25.56, 4th) and Konadu (26.63, 5th).



Gregory led a one-two SLHS finish of the 400 meters by winning the event in 57.22. Mullings followed in 57.58.


Gulgert started her final high school postseason winning the 1,600 meters in 5:06.55 and the 3,200 meters in 11:11.79. Junior Caitlyn Morris finished third in the 1,600 (5:10.90).


Sophomore Wilma Birkas, freshman Annika Yu, senior Tina Habibi and junior Emily Lannen won the 4x800 meter relay in 9:37.68. Lannen and Habibi teamed with seniors Jordan Anderson and Sophie Halkett to win the 4x400 meter relay (4:02.82). Lannen also finished second in the 800 meters (2:15.68).


Other District champions for the SLHS girls’ team include:

  • Junior Sarah Jane Brown in the shot put (31-03.50).
  • The 4x100 meter relay team of Howard, Konadu and seniors Alana Pardo and Nicole Post.


Cooley contributed to the boys team title by winning the 100 meters in 11.08, finishing second in the 200 meters (22.48) and teaming with senior Daniel Ezidinma, junior Branden Tirona and sophomore Ebi Fiobotei to win the 4x100 meter relay. Cooley also finished sixth in the long jump (19-10.00).


Miller used his last throws to win the shot put (46-00.50) and the discus throw (129-06.00). He also scored points for the team with a fifth place finish in he high jump (5-08.00).


Levy-Myers, the district’s indoor track pole vault champion, added this season’s outdoor title to his resume with a vault of 13-00.00. Senior Jonny Luu finished second (12-06.00).


Napolitano won the 400 meters (50.88), finished fourth in the 200 meters (23.38) and anchored the 4x400 relay team of junior Vincent Prudhomme and seniors Miguel Mazumder and Will Shapiro to a second place finish (3:34.94).


Two freshmen made impressive showings in the 110 meter hurdles. William Watson finished second (16.25) while Ethan Bower was fifth (17.83).


The top six finishers in the individual events and the top three relays qualify for the 6A Region D Championship Meet May 22-23 at James Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax.
