Bradwell Institute’s track and field team ran away from the 12-team field Monday at Savannah Country Day, outdistancing its nearest competitor by 30 points.
It was an impressive performance, according to BI coach Deandre Davis.
“Even though we have more work to do before this weekend, I was extremely impressed with the overall performances,” Davis said.
Several of the athletes did not participate on Tuesday, and sophomore Devin Nash picked up the ball and ran with it. He finished second in the 100 with a time of 10.95.
Shamar Rose won the 200 with a time of 21.85, and the duo teamed up with Bryan Chase and Nigel Trim to win the 4x100 meter relay.
The Tigers also finished second in the 4x400m relay.
“Jeremiah Johnson really stepped up in the 110m hurdles.
Davis said, after Johnson’s second place finish in the event. “Malcolm Currie has really improved over the last couple of weeks. He won the 300m Hurdles. His time was a whole three seconds better than his previous time.
In other events, De’Leon Madria won the discus with a throw of 147 feet 6 inches. That mark was Madria’s personal record. He also won the shot put with a throw of 46 feet 11 inches.
His previous mark was only 42 feet.
Currently, Madria is ranked in the top five in both categories in Class AAAAAA, Davis said.
Bradwell’s coach also gave high marks to his jumpers, including Jaylen Johnson and Jaiden Williams.
“The jumpers had another great meet. Newcomer Jaylen won the Triple Jump. This young man has a lot of room for improvement. He was surprised that he did as well as he did. Jaiden Williams finished second in the Long Jump.
The Tigers will compete in the Tiger Invitational this weekend at Bradwell.
