Eagles Track & Field Soaring

    The Washington & Lee boys track team is off to its best start in years.  Two weeks ago the Eagles placed third at the King William Invitational, their highest placing ever at the Bob Murray Invitational. 

Then last Wednesday the Eagles traveled back to King William to face the Cavilers and Richmond County

for a tri-meet, which they placed first.  The Eagles are still struggling in most jumping events but are coming along slowly.  Junior Otho Gaskins placed second in the high jump, he was followed by junior C.J. Harris who placed fourth.  Junior Marquise James placed third in the triple and long jump.  Junior Raymond Johnson placed second in the Shot Put and Disc, with marks of 38-11 in the shot and 113-08 in the Disc.
 
    Junior Marcus Smith placed second in the 100, he was followed by Bryan Burrell, who finished third.  Bryan Burrell placed second in the 100.  The Eagles dominated the middle and long distance.  In the 400, they went 1,2, & 3.  Junior Otho Gaskins won the 400 setting a personal record of 53.15, he was followed by seniors Shaquille McNeill and Raymond Smith.  Jeremiah McNeill, placed second in the 800 and was the lone Eagle to run in the event.  Cullen Oliver, a senior, made the switch from baseball to track this year and so far it has paid off.  He won the 1600 and 3200 for the Eagles, for his third victories of the year.

Jimmy Sumiel, a two sport athlete won the 300 hurdles and placed third in the 110 hurdles.  The 4x4 team once again dominated the race, but ran a much slower time then they did a week ago.  The team consist of Shaquille McNeill, Pip Bankhead, Raymond Smith, & Otho Gaskins.  The Eagles will travel to Northumberland for a quad meet on April 27th.
