Tigers finish third at Early Bird Invite
BI Track1

Bradwell Institute’s boys track team finished third at the Patriot’s Early Bird Invitational in Conyers, missing out on a first-place trophy by 12 points while competing in wintry conditions.

“I am very proud of my athletes, they fought hard through the freezing cold,” BI track coach DeAndre Davis said.

 Among the highlights:

 Shamar Rose won the 100 meter dash with a time of 11.11 seconds. His teammate Devin Nash wasn’t too far behind with a time of 11.12, and the closest person to them was five meters away. These two teamed up with Chase Bryan and Nigel Trim to finish third in the 4x100 meter relay.

De’Leon Madria and Kydis Duvall dominated the throwing events. De’Leon won the discus and finished fifth in the shot put. Duvall finished second in the shot put.

 “These young men have been working extremely hard,” Davis said. “They will only get better as the season progresses.”

 Malcom Currie and Jaiden Williams continue to get better in the Pole Vault. Williams finished second with a vault of 11 feet, a personal record. Malcolm Currie finished fourth in the event. His vault of 10-6 was also a PR. The school record is 12-6.

“Both stated that they would love to break the record,” Davis said. “Going 12-6 will also have them in the top 10 in the state.”

 Davis said the team met expectations for the first meet of the season.

 “This team will only get better as the season progresses,” he said.
