RECAP: WCAC Championships
Pride is on the line. We all want to win. Who wants it more? This anticipated conference meet had all the drama and met every expectation. This was the time track became a team sport and not an individual. Athletes competed as one to be named the best private schools in the WCAC!
The Archbishop Carroll boys vs. DeMatha and Seton vs. St. John's girl's rivalry were the reason this meet was worth a conversation! Every team was driven by their opponents and it showed on the track. Everyone has respect for each other but when the time comes it's all business. We'll be uncovering all of the drama!
Carroll had a point to prove to be seen as the sprint powerhouse! Nyckoles Harbor led his team to a sweep in the 100m and 200m giving them big points. Harbor took gold in both running 10.47 and 20.77. Marcus Brown earned both silvers with 10.74 and 21.41. Dezmone Starks fought for 3rd in both with 10.74 and 21.47.
