Varsity Track & Field at NCISAA 1A/2A State Championship Meet (at North Raleigh Christian Academy)

After the first day of competition, our boys team was in 6th place in the team standings, thanks to a school record-shattering first place performance in the 3200m by junior Quinn Schneider. Quinn earned 10 points for Woodlawn with the victory, exploding for a scorching 63-second last lap to run 9:31.53 and win by a comfortable 12-second margin. In other boys action, junior Zach Lorch ran the best 300m Hurdle race of his career, setting a new school record of 46.45, the 10th fastest performance in the preliminaries.

The Woodlawn girls team also lit up the scoreboard on day one, courtesy of 7th grader Natalie Boyle’s 4 foot 6 inch effort in the high jump, earning her a tie for fifth place and 3.5 points for Woodlawn. Junior Amelia Woodall won her heat of the 300m Hurdles in a school record 51.97, the sixth fastest time in the prelims – assuring her a top-eight finish tomorrow in the finals of that event. Freshman Megan Dailey also garnered a spot in the finals of her specialty, the 100m dash, by running a 13.38, the sixth fastest time in the prelims.

Day two of the meet brought more highlights for the Trailblazers. In the highly anticipated boys 1600m event, Quinn found himself in 6th place with one lap to go in the race, perhaps due to the lingering effects of the previous night’s blockbuster 3200m race. But he managed to close the race with a 60-second lap, just nipping two runners at the line to finish in second place, adding 8 points to the team total. And if that wasn’t enough, he returned an hour later to add another point by finishing eighth in the 800m run. The boys 4x200m relay team of Matt Childers, Jake Johnson, Will Hedrick, and Drew Hedrick ran a school record 1:39.58 to finish in eighth position as well, adding another point to raise Woodlawn’s total to 20 points, good for 11th place in the team standings (2nd among 1A schools).

In the girls 100m, Megan Dailey ran a strong race in the finals, crossing the line in 4th for 5 points. Amelia Woodall added another point with her eighth place in a red-hot 300m Hurdles finals, posting a time that was nearly identical to her PR from the previous day. Dailey and Woodall teamed up with Carmen Lolla and Madison Berini to run a blistering 53.93 in the 4x100m relay, a new school record that was good for third place and 6 points. Our Woodlawn girls ended up with a team total of 15.5 points, 15th place in the team standings (2nd among 1A schools).
