The Lake Ridge boys and girls track and field teams brought home team titles at last weekend’s Skyline Track Classic.
In addition, on the girls side, the Lady Eagles’ Ariel Ford in the 400m, Celestine Annan in the 300m hurdles and Jasmine Moore in the long jump and triple jump all set new school records.
Ford’s time in the 400m was good for second place overall at Skyline. Annan’s times in the 300m and the 100m hurdles placed her second in both events. The 4x100m, 4x200m and 4x400m relays all collected second place for the Lake Ridge girls.
Other standout performances for Lake Ridge included Patrick Johnson’s third-place finishes in both the 110m and 300m hurdles, boys 4x200m and 4x400m relay third-place finishes, a first- and second-place finish in the discus by Thomas Patterson and Anthony Narro, respectively, and the same 1-2 finish in the high jump by Eagles Austin Ondijo and Iyanu Adeyeye. It was 1-2-3 in the long jump with Jimmy Enobabor, Collin Butler and T.J. Graham. Enobabor was also the champion in the triple jump.
Another top finish for the Lady Eagles was in the 100m, with Kelly Rowe, Moore and Hillary Givens taking 2-4 places.
