Richmond Senior track races to victory in SEC regular-season finale


ROCKINGHAM — The Richmond Senior boys and girls track teams swept Lumberton and Scotland in their final conference meet of the regular season, combining to score 188 of the 307 points recorded on Wednesday.

Magic Ward and Preston Coker were the lead point-getters in individual events for the boys teams with 15 and 10 points, respectively. Ward had first-place finishes in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles, came in second in the discus throw and a finished third in the 200-meter dash. Coker, a sophomore, finished first in both the 200- and 400-meter dashes.

Kennedy Alexander picked up 12 points for the girls team with two top finishes in the 300-meter hurdles and the high jump. Alexander also came in third place in the long jump. Freshman Kibreeana Stewart didn’t record any first-place finishes on the day, but was runner-up in three different events (100m hurdles, 300m hurdles, high jump) which helped her finish the meet with nine points.

Both Richmond teams separated themselves from the competition Wednesday, with the boys tallying 100 points and the girls picking up a total of 88.

In the boys’ meet, Scotland finished second (35 points) and Lumberton came in a close third (32 points). On the girls’ side, Lumberton was second (33 points) and Scotland finished last (19 points).

The Lady Raiders received most of their production from the relay races, as all four teams finished in first place. Alexander, Stewart, Brandi Miller and Taliah Wall dominated hurdles in order to give the team 18 of the 19 points scored in the hurdling events.

Aieral Brown (880m run), Mariah Mendez (3200m run) and Tasheka Harrington (shot put) also played a big part Wednesday with first-place finishes in their respective events.

The boys team placed first in all but four events — long jump, triple jump, discus and shot put — and won every relay race, too. The Raiders swept the top three in the 11o-meter hurdles and the 200-meter dash.

Carter Roberson, Brandon Silva and Zachariah Hamilton bested the three distance events, Malik Flowers tied for No. 1 in the high jump and Jaleen Baldwin raced past his opponents in the 100-meter dash. Jaquan Everette and Bryan Marsh were runners-up in the long and triple jumps, respectively, while Robert David placed third in shot put.
