The last track meet Woodlawn High had was the District Meet on April 20th. For the District Meet, Woodlawn came in third place for boys and girls, which contained events in sections such as throwing, like shot put or javelin, jumping, and running.
Individually, Brandon Williams finished first for the boy’s 400 meter dash, Alexis Martin finished first in the girl’s 3200 meter run, and Samaria Newton came in first for the 100 meter hurdles. As a group, Jordan Donald, Nicholas Bradley, Khidir Al-Mustafa, and Brandon Williams took first for the 4×400 relay team.
With the results from the District meet, Woodlawn had a total of 12 girls and 15 boys qualify for Regional, which was held on April 27th. At the Regional meet, track member Calah Williams qualified for State, which took place May 7th. Although no students placed at State, having students represent Woodlawn at that event is something to be proud of. Good job to all the Woodlawn Track Athletes for finishing the year strong!
