KG Foxes girls dominate Caroline Polar Bear meet

First impressions are lasting, and the Foxes girls could be stronger than ever. After cruising to a commanding sweep over North Stafford, New Kent and Caroline during the Caroline Polar Bear track meet last Wednesday, it’s apparently certain that the Foxes girls’ winter indoor track and field teams are back for another successful season.
Foxes winter track and field head coach Rudy Pekarek is confident that his girls’ contingent of potential Regional stars have a strong chance of repeating or possibly improving up last year’s second place performance.
“If they maintain, stay focused, and put a strong work ethic in they should challenge for the Regional championship,” Pekarek said.

The Lady Foxes simply blew out the competition with a 91-point finish. While Brittany Kersey stole the show with a first place, State Championship-qualifying high jump of 5 feet, Lindsey (1,000, 55 meters) and Haley Armentrout (1,600, 3,200 meters) ran away with the field with two first place finishes. Haley’s 3,200-meter performance landed her a Regional qualification, as Lindsey continued to show versatility by placing fifth in the high jump. The girls’ 4x200 and 4x400 meter relay teams placed first in their respective events.
In addition, the girls’ 4x200 meter relay team qualified for the Regional Championship with a time of 1:52.26.
Shaquoy Morris  (27’ 2”) and Jessica Swenson (25’ 7”) combined for a sweep of the top two spots for the shot put.
Although 100-meter outdoor state champion Joe Walton is temporary out due a football injury, the Foxes boys’ managed a solid third place finish. Caroline boys’ defeated the field of four teams with 74.50 points. King George boys’ team finished third with 40.50.
Top finishers for Foxes were Corey Rodriquez with a second place Regional finish in the 500 meters (1:10.59), and a first place 3200-meter finisher by Ian Koepfinger (11:31.83). Rodriquez also placed second in the 55-meter hurdles. The boys’ 4x400 meter relay team placed first with a time of 3:47.27.
