KG Foxes girls’ set record

On Saturday, at the sixth annual Woodberry Forest Invitational, in Woodberry Forest, the Foxes girls’ 4x800-meter relay team set a new King George High School record in their event.


Currently, the time of 9:47.26 is also the best time in the state of Virginia in the girls’ 4x800-meter relay event. The foursome of Miranda Green, Ashley Perkins, Brittany Williams and Kristen Hornbaker are accustomed to standing in the spotlight and setting the standard for area high school track & field. During the latter part of the 2013 outdoor track & field season, the four upperclassmen competed in the prestigious New Balance Outdoor Championships.
Overall the Foxes girls’ finished first with 153 points. Their closest competitor was St. Catherine with 146 points. As for the boys, Woodberry Forest dominated the meet with 181 points. Although the Foxes boys’ team did travel with a full squad, they finished the meet with a solid second place finish (91.5 points).
Top King George point producer Heidi Colwell finished first in the 300-meters (49.65), third in the 100-meter hurdles (16.71), ran first leg of the first place 4x400-meter team (4:12.20), sixth in the triple jump (30’10.50”), and placed first in the pole vault (9’6”).

Other prominent Foxes girls’ finishes included: DeAsia Callanan, 100-meter dash, 1st, (13.35) long jump, 4th, 15’9.25”; Brittany Williams, 400-meters, 2nd, 1:01.38; Miranda Green, 1,600-meters, 1st, 5:24.47; Kristen Hornbaker, 3,200-meters, 5th, 12:09.29; 4x100-meters, 3rd, 53.65; 4x400-meter, 1st, 4:12.20; Elizabeth Hill, high jump, 2nd, 4’10”; Caroline Williams, shot put, 3rd, 31”1”; discus, 84’11.

Maddie Amos featured a personal best in the 3,200-meters with a seventh place finish, and time of 12:56.45.

The high point in the meet for the Foxes boys’ team was the 800-meter run. Only seconds separated the three top finishers, which happened to be from King George. Fernando DeLaRosa finished first with a time of 2:01.99. Finishing a second behind DeLaRosa was teammate Christian Koon with a time of 2:02.03.

Finishing third was Brian Greeley with a time of 2:06.33. DeLaRosa and Koon were less than a second from making state qualifying times.

Other prominent boys’ placements included: Jacolby White, 100-meter dash, 6th, 11.63; Matt Brown, 200-meter dash, 22.98; Ezugo Agulou, 400-meter dash, 2nd, 50.48; Earl Calloway, 110-meter hurdles, 4th, 16.80; 300-meter hurdles, 5th, 44.57; 4x100-meters, 3rd, 44.91; 4x400-meters, 2nd, 3:30.39; Justin Halter, high jump, 7th, 5’8”; Jonathan Graham, pole vault, 3rd, 13’6”; Kyree Garrett, triple jump, 38’3.50; Trey Stewart, discus, 7th, 108”.

 

Pre-conference 22 meet
Fauquier has put King George on notice that outdoor track & field will be a dogfight during the post-season Conference 22 Championship. Last Wednesday, in Fauquier, all six conference teams competed in the first annual Conference 22 Pre-Conference Meet. In the end, both Foxes girls’ and boys’ teams came out on top.

However, Fauquier never waivered and fought the Foxes down to the last event. Cautiously optimistic, King George High School head track & field coach Rudy Pekarek is well aware of the talent pool that Fauquier has in store. “We had a lot of people step up, and it looks like King George and Fauquier will be the two top schools vying for the conference title this season,” Pekarek said.

The Foxes girls’ team won the competition with 227.33 points, while their male counterparts finished with 129.50 points. Fauquier was the Foxes closest competitor with their girls scoring 141.33 points, and their boys finishing with 110 points.

The Foxes took full advantage of the team’s depth to build up as many points as possible to win the meet. As always, Heidi Colwell led the team in points. Colwell placed second in the 100-meter hurdles (16.56), first in the pole vault (8’), and third in the triple jump (29’9.25”.

In the distance events, the Foxes girls were unstoppable. Miranda Green dominated the 1,600 meter run (5:31.88), and the 800-meter run (2:25.99). Kristen Hornbaker distanced her from the pack with a first place finish in the 3,200-meter run (12:03.15).

While veteran athletes such as Brittany Williams (400-meter dash, 2nd, 1:02.00) continued to hold their own, younger athletes have begun to show promise. Freshman Shamaya Abdulla placed second in the 100-meter dash (13.50) and 200-meter dash (27.59). DeAsia Callahan placed second in the long jump with a leap of 13’8.50”. Tyra Johnson edged out teammate Caroline Williams for a second place finish in the shot put (33’5”). However, Williams redeemed her efforts in the discus with a second place finish that resulted in a 81’10” toss.

With the exception of a second place finish in the 4x100 (52.88), the Foxes girls dominated the relay events with the following finishes: 4x400-meters, 4:22.40; 4x800-meters, 10:20.79.

Davion Hutt set the tone for boys competition as he blasted the competition in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.95. Hutt later placed third in the long jump (19:2.00). Ezugo Agulou placed second in the 400-meter run with a time of 51.67. Fernando DeLaRosa (2:03.06) and Christian Koon (2:03.56) finished third and fourth in the 800-meter run. Jacob Watson ruled both the 1,600-meters (4:41.44), and 3,200-meters (10:04.54).

Earl Calloway placed fourth in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 16.98. Justin Halter placed second in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 43.08. With the exception of the second place finish in the 4x100-meters (44.64), the Foxes boys dominated the relays with first place finishes in the 4x400-meters (3:36.80), and 4x800-meters (8:34.46).

Justin Halter placed first in the high jump with a leap of 5’10”. Jacolby White finished fourth in the triple jump with a leap of 36’5”. A huge surprise for King George was sophomore Eric Meek’s shot put performance.

Meeks was able to place third in the event with a 40’3” effort. It has been years since a Fox athlete has been able to surpass 40’ in the shot put.
