What a weekend!  We sent out the indoor season/kicked off the outdoor season in grand fashion at the North Coast Athletic Conference Championships.  The women's team tied for first and the men's team tied for third ... the best finishes by both teams in school history.  

So many of our athletes had phenomenal meets.  In fact, we had 8 conference champs, loads more All-Conference (top 3) finishers and four school records!  Nicky Ouellet won the 800, mile and finished 5th in the 3k.  For her efforts she won distance runner of the meet honors.  Joanna Johnson won the 5k, the women's 4x2 of Ali Gemma, Madeline Schultz, Laura Vernon and Amanda Miller won.  Laura Vernon also won the pole vault and Ali Gemma also won the long jump.  Solomon Turner won the 55m, and the men's 4x400 of Seth Wimberly, Peter Morris, Solomon Turner and Reshard El-Shair won in a new meet record and school record!  Other school record setters were our Men's Distance Medley, Solomon Turner in the 55 and Ryan King in the mile.  See full results at

Indoor season isn't quite over yet.  Nicky will be competing in the mile at the National Championships this coming weekend.  It's the second national meet she has qualified for this year.  

Everybody else is getting ready for mid-terms next week.  After mid terms, we leave for our annual Spring Break trip.  This year's trip is to Atlanta.  We'll primarily spend the week relaxing and preparing for a meet at Emory on the 27th.  But the team captains always find fun activities for everyone during the week.  In years past, we've gone to a hockey game and the zoo in South Carolina, and NASA and the Beach in Houston.
