Decatur teams finish first among Bayside schools

(Jan. 4, 2013) Before the Christmas break, 22 boys’ and girls’ indoor track teams competed Dec. 19, at the Worcester County Recreation Center in Snow Hill. The Stephen Decatur boys’ and girls’ squads were both the top Maryland and Bayside Conference finishers.

“We did pretty well for having some injuries and people out sick,” said Coach Jody Stigler. “We were the first Bayside school, which is pretty good.”

The Decatur boys’ team took third place with 47.5 points. Caesar Rodney won with 104 points and Cape Henlopen finished in second place (54). Both are Delaware schools.

Decatur senior Kyle Kelly earned a victory in the 300-meter race, crossing the finish line in 37.70 seconds. James Mapp, also a senior, was right behind him, finishing in 38.20 seconds.

The two joined seniors Sunny Aroh and Daniel Winters for the 1,600-meter relay event, which the foursome won in 3:46.49.

The girls’ 1,600-meter relay team was also successful. Juniors Layla Fowler and Chloe FauntLeRoy and sophomores Lauren Bodolus and Jenna Leitgeb completed the race in 4:33.41, to earn top honors.

Senior Ameerah Lewis threw the shot put 31 feet 1/2 inch to win the event.

The Lady Seahawks took fourth overall with 48.5 points. Smyrna (75.5), Sussex Tech (53) and Caesar Rodney (50), all Delaware schools, finished first through third respectively.

The next meet is scheduled for Jan. 9, at the Worcester County Recreation Center in Snow Hill.
