DIAA Meet of Champions
Top Athletes (and the Sun) Shine at the Meet of Champs!
The gloomy weather that seemed to hang on to the entire Spring season finally gave way to nearly perfect conditions for the Meet of Champs. After a  weather delay pushed the state meet to Monday, performances lagged a bit on just two days rest, but champions, who proved their merit all year, emerged with few surprises.
Perhaps the biggest news was the biggest absence, Daija Lampkin, the junior from Middletown, who was unbeaten in DE all season, seized the opportunity to represent her state and country at the Caribbean Scholastic Invitaional in Cuba. Her flight gave way to Najiya Cornish (Ursuline) and Naiya Smith (Sussex Central). Cornish was the winner in both the 100m/12.34 and the 200m/24.81, while Smith was crowned the 400m champion, winning the event in 56.35.

Patience proved to be the right strategy in the distance events. First was Concord's Katie Macturk, who won the 1600m/5:09.95 by holding pace and steadily pulling away from the field. 
Next, Tatnall's Savannah Pankow/2:20.67 outlasted Newark Charter's Lillian Peterson/2:21.82 and DMA's Nicole Harris/2:22.32 in the closest distance event of the night. 
In the 3200m, Tatnall's Keelin Hays, Newark's Rachel Beston, and Padua's Lydia Olivere, ran tightly through the first six laps before Olivere decidedly took over with two laps remaining to win by 10 seconds in 10:37.42. Hays was next in 10:47.21, followed by Beston in 10:50.30. 

There were no surprises in the hurdle events. Delcastle's Sherita Lowman was the 100m Hurdle champ, clearing them in 14.67.
Padua's Taliah Cintron was the winner in the 300m hurdles in 45.16.

In the field events, Smyrna's Myrissa McFolling-Young went home with two golds! She won the Shot Put in 38-11.50 and the Discus in 138-11.
State record holder Micaiah Dendy won the Triple Jump in 38-07.75, but she was out-jumped by Sophia Janotti, of Appoquinimink, in the Long. Janotti won the Long Jump by an inch (17-04.00).
Padua's Darby Deutsch won the Pole Vault in 11-06. Her teammate Camryn Harris was second vaulting 11-00.
In the High Jump, Victoria Shepherda junior from St. Georges, outlasted the field, winning on fewer misses at 5-02.

Padua took home gold in two relay events. The team of Cameron Lucey, Elizabeth Bader, Jordan Sobolesky, & Taliah Cintron won the 4 x 200m in 1:43.94. Cintron and Baderwere joined by Darby Deutsch and Sarah Durso to win the 4 x 400m in 3:55.24.

In the 4 x 800m, it was the girls from Tatnall, Lauren Anshen, Caroline Foley, Keelin Hays & Savannah Pankow, who won in 9:23.10.

Glasgow's Ja' saan Cunningham, NCC champion in both the 100m and 200m and DII champ in the 100m was denied a win in the short sprint events. He was, however, able to secure an All State position by anchoring the winning 4 x 200m. He and teammates Martise Younger, Simeon Dailey, Darius Blalock won that event in 1:29.02. 

Emerging as short spring champions were Mt. Pleasant's Jashawn Johnson (100m/11.07) and Wm Penn's Mike Mills (200m/22.05).

Charter's Kevin Murray, easily won the 3200m in 9:26.19, nearly 200m ahead of the runner-up, Vail Freed of Appoquinimink. Noticeably absent was DI champ John Walker, of Sallesianum, who chose just to run the 4 x 400m in his last meet of his high school career.

In the hurdle events, Michah Joseph-Young (St. Georges) and Ryan Thompson (McKean) finished their dominance in the championship season with wins. Joseph-Young was the winner in the 110m Hurdles in 14.90, while Thompson took the 300m Hurdles in 39.70.
