The Walter Johnson girls kicked off the meet strong with a win in the girl's 4x800m relays by over 7 seconds to continue their 4x800m winning streak from last outdoors! Saniya Simmons of Henry A Wise followed soon after in the 300m, taking a swift win in the 300m followed before by a win in the 55m prelims.  The 1600m then kicked off as two distance harriers in Grace Finnegan of Richard Montgomery and Mollie Fenn of Broadneck dueled it out, with Finnegan pulling away and securing her second state title in the 1600m as a sophomore! Broadneck has a great showing in the girl's 1600m with Emma Kerr and Grace Denius helped Broadneck take home 17 points in the event. Coming off of her winning 4x800m, Emma Kothari of Walter Johnson took home the win in the 500m in dominant fashion with an over 3-second victory over Urbana's duo of Sofia Cedrone and Tessa Stanley. In the 55mh, Corinne Ball of North Point took the upset victory over Aliyah Rahman of Northwest after Rahman took home the win in the prelims. Ella Zeigler of James Hubert Blake took home the win in the 3200m after a tight 3-way battle with Varri Higgins of Bethesda-Chevy Chase and Kaylee Copenspire of Perry Hall. Saniya Simmons came back after a swift win in the 55m prelims and the 300m to claim the 55m finals too and score her 2nd state title of the meet. The Urbana girls put in a strong effort in the 4x200m to pull away from Northwest, narrowly edging them by two-tenths of a second to take home the state title. In the girls 800m, Mollie Fenn doubled back from her 2nd place finish in the 1600m to take home a state title of her own at 800m, followed extremely closely by Emma Kothari who was doubling back from her 500m win earlier. To cap off the running events, James Hubert Blake took off in the 4x400m with a convincing win over Northwest to end off the day. The field events were dominated by Urbana as Nia Kombe-Jarvis and Sammi Scates went 1 and 3 in the pole vault and Fiona Agyekum took home the win in the shotput. Your high jump winner from Leonardtown, Dylan Countiss, took home the win at a height of 5-02. Your overall girl's team winners ended up being Urbana with a dominant showing of 91.5 points while 2nd place was taken home by Northwest.
