For this particular meet, schools were resting some of their top performers in preparation for the district championships next week.

Still, Lakeland track coach Gregory Rountree said, some members of the team were improving their scores in preparation.

Lakeland’s Jordan Hardiman finished first in the boys’ high jump with a successful leap of 6’4”. Lakeland’s girls 4×800-meter relay ‘A’ team also finished first with a time of 10:37.07.

Rountree was hoping they would beat their previous record of 10:18.89, but that came in a tight race, unlike Wednesday. “It’s hard to run without that competition,” he said.

Coming in first in the girls’ long jump was Malika Rashid of Nansemond River with a jump of 17’1.75”.

Nansemond River’s Zakiya Rashid qualified for the state championship in girls’ shot put with her distance of 36’2.5”. The girls’ track coach for the Warriors, Marissa Post, was impressed, noting that Rashid is a freshman and also that it is unusual to qualify for states at this stage.

Nansemond River also claimed first place with its ‘A’ teams in both the girls’ and boys’ 4×400-meter relay with times of 4:08.68 and 3:31.25, respectively.

The Southeastern District Championships take place next Wednesday at the Boo Williams Sportsplex.
