Peninsula District Championship Meet Summary

 

The Bethel boys and girls swept the team titles at the Peninsula District Championships on Tuesday at the Boo Williams Sportsplex in Hampton.

 

With a clean sweep of the relays, the Bethel girls were able to continue their dominance of the Peninsula District into the new decade with a margin victory of 45 points from Hampton (2nd, 84 pts) and Phoebus (3rd, 86 pts) in a final team score of 129 points. The 55 meter hurdles and the 500 meter dash were strong individual events for the Bruins with an expected 1-2 finish in the hurdles by the state's two fastest in Samantha Scarlett (8.25) and Courtni Pannell (8.32), while three of the top four finishers in the 500 were from Bethel and under 1:20 in champion Rashaun Combs (1:18.92), Maya More, and Jazmine Wright.

 

Renay Ransaw was the top field event performer of the meet leaping to winning marks in the long jump (17'9.25") and triple jump (36'3.25") as well as garnering a second place finish and 8 points for the Hampton girls in the shot put (36'3").

 

The Bethel boys (97 pts) had a nice balance of speed and distance en route to their district team championship including a 1-2 finish in the 300 meter dash from Eric Thomas (36.15) and Isiah Gibson (36.26). Meanwhile, William Brown took care of business in the distance races as he secured wins in the 1600 (4:35) and 3200 (10:11) meter races. Ronnie Saunders added to the Bethel team total from the sprint crew with a swift 6.61 clocking and win in the 55 meter dash.

 

Wooside (2nd, 88 pts) gave Bethel a formidable challenge as they only ended up trailing by nine points in the final standings as the district runner-up. Brandon Burton picked up 18 points individually for the Wolverines as the close runner-up to Bethel's Brown in the 1600 and followed up as the event winner in the 1000 meter run.

 

Tania Minkins of Menchville and Christal Peterson of Phoebus pressed each other to one of the fastest races of the meet in the girls 300 meter dash with low 40 second times produced by district champion Minkins at 40.17 and runner-up Peterson at 40.36. Earlier in the meet, Peterson sprinted to a 7.15 victory in the 55 meter dash.

 

55 meter hurdles state leader Daniel McFadden was the top male performer of the meet in claiming first place finishes in the hurdles (7.60) and long jump (21'9.75"). The Heritage junior also took second place in the triple jump.
