Hicks and Hammar have huge performances at the Wheeler Invite and all 3 relay teams come away with first place finishes! As the 3200m relay team of Aaliyah Clopton, Ani Montford, Giselle Flores and Hannah Hammar were running a season best performance at 10:41.7 and placing first, Kenadee Williams was also turning in a season best and placing 4th in the discus with a throw of 96′. Jaida Blissett continued the scoring for the Governors in the high jump matching her best performance of the year at 4’8 and placing 4th. The Governors doubled up their points in the long jump as both Jhanelle Spence 15’11 1/2 and Breanna Brignac 15’2 went 1-2 in the long jump with their best jumps of the season. Leilah started her outstanding performances for the day by breaking the Morton 100m dash record with a 12.72 and placed 2nd by 1/100ths of a second, but came back later in the afternoon and beat the opponent she lost to in the 100 by winning the 200m dash. Breanna Reed also added points to the team score by placing 3rd in the 100m dash and also running a personal best in that event. Then it was “Hammar time” as Hannah ran a personal record and finished first in the open 400m dash with a time of 1:03 and Ani Montford also added points with her 7th place finish in the 400. In the 300 low hurdles again the Governors doubled up the points and had season record performances with Tyasia Jones placing 3rd and Lynnae Collins placing 7th. Back to Hannah in the 800m run as she again brought home a blue ribbon with a 1st place finish. Giselle Flores finished out the individual scoring taking 7th in the 3200m run. The 400m relay team of Brianna Rodriguez, Ariah Smith, Breanna Reed and Leilah Hicks had nearly perfect handoffs which resulted in a season best performance along with a 1st place finish, and the 1600m relay team of Hannah, Ariah, Breanna and Leilah closed out the meet with a final team best time for the season and another 1st place finish! Congratulations Governors and good luck Thursday, April 20th at your final home meet in the Jesse Jones Invite.
