Athlete Spotlight: Quintin Fulgham Jun 4, 2010

Photo by John Herzog   Justin Hunter is without a doubt the favorite in all three jumping events for this weekend's VHSL Group AAA State Championships as he also attempts to help Ocean Lakes for the first state title, but none of the titles will be given to him without a challenge. Hunter should especially see a challenge in the long jump from Thomas Dale senior Quintin Fulgham who appears to be stepping up at the right time in both the jumps and the sprints after winning four individual titles at the Central Region Championships.

Athlete Spotlight: Montasia Golden Jun 3, 2010

Lee-Davis junior Montasia Golden (pictured left by John Herzog) started out high school with some big shoes and expectations to fill when she took over the role as the top point scorer for the track team and drew quick comparisons at the time to the recently graduated multi-event star Rachel Butler. There is good reason to see why the comparisons appeared as Golden does many of the same events which Butler excelled in such as the jumps and hurdles. During this past year Golden has become not the next Rachel Butler, but instead established herself and her own name with a state title indoors in the triple jump and enters this weekend's Group AAA State Championships in Richmond as one of the top seeds in both hurdle events fresh off two all-time best performances at the regional meet. A stress fracture injury prevented her from competing early in the outdoor season as well as held her out entirely from taking any attempts at the triple jump, but with her focus completely on the hurdles she may get a worthy consolation prize for being unable to go for an outdoor title in the triple jump.
