T.C. Williams Webcast

This box has on-scene highlights uploaded live throughout Saturday from the 17th T.C. Williams Invitational at T. C. Williams High School, Alexandria VA, which featured six Penn Relays champions.

Detailed Results

Centreville sweeps MVP awards with triple winner Rickey Harris (110H, 300H, 200) and double winner Faith Rein (200-400)

W. Potomac girls, Potomac boys win team titles.

Penn Relays 4x400 champion MD Northwestern was never pressed in a no-sweat 3:15 (unofficial), but was disqualified because anchor James Graham was entered in too many events.  Under Virginia High School League rules, an athlete can run in no more than three running events (and unlimited field events), whereas Maryland rules allow any four events.  Graham ran in the open 400, 300H, 4x800, and 4x400.  The meet announcement said that the meet would be run under VHSL and National Federation rules, and the VHSL three running event limit was stated on the meet announcement.   After the DQ, DC Ballou moved up to first place (3:19.25). 

Girls 4x400: Host T. C. Williams won decisively with a strong anchor leg by freshman Renee Clark.  Top seeded MD Largo and VA West Potomac both suffered from dropped batons away from the exchange zones.  

MD Gaithersburg senior Mike Murray ran away with the boys 3200 in an impressive 9:19.43.  Top seed David Glynn of MD Walter Johnson was fourth (9:24.81), behind Centreville senior Daniel Heiner (9:23.23) and C.D. Hylton senior Chris Feist (9:24.02).

Villanova-bound Liz Awtrey was a big winner in the girls 3200, running a meet record 10:33.04 with a 45 second victory margin.  That beat the old record  of 10:33.22 held by Sally Glynn, now of Stanford, in 1996.

VA Centreville doubled in the 200 meters, Rickey Harris winning the boys in 21.55 and Faith Rein winning the girls in 24.96.  That was a triple for Harris (both hurdles) and a double for Rein (400).

Boys 800:  Brandon Alexander of host T. C. Williams won handily in unofficial 1:57.18.

Penn Relays 400H champ Rickey Harris, VA Centerville junior, won by the slimmest of margins today at 300 meters over MD Northwestern's James Graham.  Graham appeared to take the lead between the last two hurdles, but faltered over the last hurdle and Harris streaked to the wire the winner, 36.86 to 36.93.  It was a hurdles double, both in meet record time, for Harris.  Graham's 300H time also bettered the old meet record.

A stirring girls 800 duel was waged by Mt. Vernon senior Sharon O'Connor and Thomas Jefferson sophomore Kelly Otstott.  O'Connor led throughout until Otstott came up along side at the far turn of lap two.  O'Connor responded, however, and prevailed, 2:12.73 to 2:13.01, for an 800-1600 double in this meet.

Girls 300 Hurdles: Maurika Quarles, Osbourn Park junior, benefitted from Sheena Johnson's scratch and won the event in 46.02.  Seton senior Alleyne Ricci was second in 46.17 and Kijafa Williamson, Hayfield senior, third 46.19.

Girls High Jump:  Thomas Jefferson sophomore Kristle Moss' 5-4 mark was good for first place over four girls at 5-2.

Boys Pole Vault: Brooke Point senior Philip Agee won with a vault of 13-0.

Boys 400: James Graham, anchor of MD Northwestern's Penn Relays champion 4x400 team, won the open 400 handily in a time of 48.94.  Antonio Gray of DC Ballou (49.38) headed five more boys under 50 seconds.

Girls 400: University of Florida signee Faith Rein, VA Centreville, won in 54.73.  T. C. Williams freshman Renee Clark closed fast to get second (55.94) over Alyssa Aiken, Chantilly junior (56.21).  Yolanda Thompson (57.76) was fourth. 

Penn Relays triple jump champion Allen Simms, of MD E. Roosevelt, topped his Penn mark by going 49-11.

Penn Relays 4x100 champion Potomac edged MD Eleanor Roosevelt today, 41.49 to 42.12, with VA Brooke Point a close up third (42.29) out of a different heat.  

Girls 4x100:  W. Potomac anchor Yolanda Thompson caught Largo in the last strides to win, 48.39 to 48.56.  T.C. Williams was third in 49.06.

Girls Triple Jump: W. Potomac senior Yolanda Thompson, a University of Florida signee, was 3 feet better than anyone else with a winning 40-11.25, a half inch below her own meet record.

Boys 1600: Jason Lewis, Potomac junior, edged junior Andrew Dunnum of VA Robinson, 4:26.13 to 4:27.31.

Girls 1600: Sharon O'Connor of VA Mt. Vernon was a wire to wire winner in 4:56.80, with Colleen Winzeler, VA George Mason HS, a fast closing second (5:11.25) over Kim Myers, VA Jefferson Forest  (5:12.15).  Erin Swain, VA Lake Braddock (5:13.86), slipped to fourth.

Girls Pole Vault:  Kira Sims, VA Gar-Field, 9-0.

Boys 110H: Rickey Harris of Centreville was an easy winner by almost a full second in 13.87.

Girls 100H: National indoor leader Sheena Johnson, Gar-Field, edged Kim Jones, NC Greensboro, in a photo finish, 13.91 to 14.12.  Johnson was fastest over the first half; Jones edged ahead with one hurdle to go, but Johnson came back and won in the sprint to the wire. 

Boys 4x800: Host T. C. Williams, third place at the Penn Relays a week ago, won a tight 3-way finish over MD Northwestern and VA Hayfield in 7:54.78.  James Graham, who anchored Northwestern's sensational 4x400 victory at Penn, tried his hand a anchoring the 4x800 and closed ground through the last 200 meters in a 1:52.5 split, coming up just short for his team (7:54.78).  Hayfield (7:57.32) was a close up third.

Girls 4x800:  VA Robinson, anchored by 1998 Southeast FootLocker champion Liz Awtrey's 2:17, was a 14 second winner (9:31 unofficially) over MD Quince Orchard.

Nick Welihozkiy hits PR 193-2 in Discus; doubles in shot put
Stanford-bound Welihozkiy, a West Springfield senior, needed all of it to beat Marvin Urquhart, VA Western Branch senior, who threw 190-11, setting up a future rematch in the Virginia AAA state championship June 5.  Both throwers beat the old meet record.  Welihozkiy later threw the shot 55-10.75 to edge Chris Parsons, MD Northern, 53-5.
