DIAA State Championship Meet, Landover, MD
Padua Girls/Salesianum Boys Take Team Titles!
Despite winning only 3 events and suffering disqualifications in the open 400m and 4 x 400m (costing them 18 points), the Pandas depth was too much for runner-up Smyrna (133.5-100), and the rest of the state. Their wins on the track came from sophomore Lydia Olivere, a double winner for the Pandas in the 1600m and 3200m, enduring pressure from Tower Hill's Isabelle Pilson/5:02.99 and Newark's Rachel Beston/5:06.14 in the 16 and then Beston/11:02.32 again along with Keelin Hays/11:06.29 in the 3200m.

The only other victory for Padua was in the Pole Vault, with Darby Deutsch leading a Panda sweep vaulting 11-00, tying #5 All Time! Her teammates Kelly Muschiatti (11-00) and Camryn Harris (10-06) placed second and third.

Micaiah Dendy, of St. Georges, was the winner in both horizontal jump events winning the Long Jump in 17-02.25, followed by the Triple Jump in 36-09.25. The Triple Jump was unusual in that 3 girls tied for the leading mark (Dendy, Shantell Kargbeh/Smyrna and Arryana Daniels/Padua), determining place with their second best effort.
The High Jump champion was also from St. Georges - Victoria Shepard/5.00.
Delcastle's Sherita Lowman won the 55mH in 8.38.

Led by senior Andrew Hally, who won both the 1600m and the 800m and was runner-up in the 3200m, their depth in the distance events went unmatched anywhere else on the field and track. Hally and three teammates, Colin Parker, John Walker, and George Steinhoff, posted a sweep in the 1600m (Hally/4:26.63, Walker/4:27.10, and Steinhoff/4:29.92) and the 800m (Hally/1:59.95, Parker/2:00.88, and Walker/2:00.94), while going 2-3-4 in the 3200m (Hally/9:50.05, Steinhoff/9:52.45, and Walker/9:55.33). None could catch a fresh Kevin Murray (Charter) in the 3200m who went wire-to-wire in 9:28.32. Sallies also picked up key points in the Pole Vault placing 1-2 (Matthew Kosciwicz/13-02.00 and Noah Bale/12-06.00).
Glasgow's Ja'saan Cunningham was the short sprint champion winning the 55m/6.51 and the 200m/22.99 and anchoring his team's winning 4 x 200m.
Howard's Edwin Rosembert, runner-up in the 55m, was the 400m champion (50.85), out-leaning Charter sophomore Roy Lee.
Delcastle's Justin Walls won the 55mH in 7.76, giving the Cougars a Girl/Boy sweep in that event.
