Summaries

Saturday, April 19 - 28th Annual Father Judge Relays @ Father Judge HS
(PennTrack on site) - The rain had stopped and the sun came out early as
the Philly-area warm-up for the Penn Relays. William Penn tuned out the
competition, taking the 4x100 in 47.44 and the 4x400 in 3:52.72 (Kandis
Worthington, 59.5, Christina Smith 58.2, Kneshia Sheard 58.3, Juanita
Broaddus 56.8). Broaddus had her right hamstring wrapped. She apparently
tweaked a hamstring at the Morgan State Relays in the 200. "She raced
smart today. She knows what 90% means, and she did that." said head
coach Tim Hickey. Broaddus should be totally ready for the Penn Relays
this week. A member of both relays, Christina Smith, also took wins in
the 400 Hurdles in 62.20 and the High Jump, clearing 5'05.00". St.
Hubert's ran alone in the DMR, going 12:26.45 (Rachel Papin, 3:46.6,
Kate Olney 61.9, Meghan Neary 2:28.9, Amy Kelly, 5:08.9). Archbishop
Prendergast took the 4x800 in 09:32.64 (Nicole O'Dea 2:19.0, Kelli
Fierras (FR), 2:21.8, Maureen Benner (FR), 2:26.8, Lindsay Dynow,
2:24.7). In the boys 4x800, Cardinal O'Hara ran the best of the season
in PA, going 7:57.36 (Matt Willard (FR) 1:59.9, Bernie Rendler, 1:57.2,
Dan Boyle, 2:02.8, Steve Hallinan, 1:57.1) while Archbishop Carroll used
a strong Mile to capture the DMR in 10:35.06.
