Washington & Lee sports roundup

Track and field
The Washington & Lee Eagles boys track and field team had gone nearly a month without racing until last week.  Some of the athletes had forgotten what meets were even like until they finally had a race.  Due to weather and a built in bye this month-long hiatus was taking its toll on the coaches and especially the athletes.  The Eagles had two meets scheduled the last two weeks to travel to Northumberland, but both meets were canceled and there was no plan to make them up.  Thankfully, West Point High School welcomed

the Eagles last Thursday to their meet with King & Queen and Middlesex.  The Eagles, though rusty, were very competitive.

On the boys’ side, W&L had six individual winners, eight second place finishers, and a number of third and fourth place winners.  The day started off right for Eagles in the field events.  Junior Raymond Johnson won the shot put and placed second in the discus throw.  Sophomore C.J. Harris placed second in the high jump and fourth in the triple jump.  Michael Clayton won the 300 hurdles and placed second in the 110 hurdles, his brother, Marcus, placed third in the 300 and third in the 110 as well. 

The Eagles middle distance continued to be a force this year.  In the 400 meter race, Otho Gaskins continued his dominate junior season.  He was followed by seniors Shaquille McNeill who finished second and Raymond Smith who finished fifth.  The 800 run was more of the same: The guys popped off a 1, 2, 3, finish.  Junior Jeremiah McNeill took first followed by sophomore Kevin Monroe and finally freshman Moses Oviedo.  In the 1600 meter, senior Cullen Oliver finished second; he was followed by Oviedo who finished third and Emmanuel Valdez who took fifth.  The 3,200-meter race was a one to two finish for Oliver and Valdez.  The Eagles 4x4 teams took first and second as well.  They were made up of the following: “A” team: Shaquille McNeill, Jeremiah McNeill, Raymond Smith and Otho Gaskins.  “B” team: Dorian Jackson, Moses Oviedo, Pip Bankhead and Kevin Monroe.  The Eagles were victorious in their meet, winning their third meet of the year out of five meets, one being an invitational where they placed third.

Boys soccer
After going winless in the month of April, Washington & Lee soccer coach RJ Sudduth was thankful for May to get here.

“April was not kind to us, so we are glad it has come and gone,” Sudduth said. 

Last Friday, the Eagles played Region “A” favorite Essex in Tappahannock and nearly pulled off a victory in overtime, but eventually fell to the Trojans 2-1 with just minutes remaining in the game.  Though the Eagles lost, they played much better and with confidence. 

“All we can hope for is that this carries over to Monday when we host Rappahannock at home” Sudduth added.  Well, that’s what they did.

On Monday the Eagles dominated much of the first half against the visiting Raiders, but finished the half tied up at zero.  You could feel a goal coming all night to break the tie on the Eagles side.  They kept pressing and they kept being denied, but as a spectator you could feel it coming.  Eventually with about 8 minutes left the Eagles got the break they were looking for.  Junior Matt Trau threw a ball into the box where Senior James Cox was there, charging to head it in.  The Eagles held on for a much-needed 1-0 win over the Raiders. The Eagles play again at home on Friday against Lancaster.
