North Charleston—While the Stall baseball and softball teams came up short in their bids for making the playoffs, there were some other athletes at the school who got the opportunity to compete for state championships.

The boys’ and girls’ track and field teams finished fifth and sixth in the region with 50 and 25 points, respectively, but there were still plenty of positives to take away from the conference meet at Berkeley High.

Four individuals placed in the top four in their events, which qualified them to move on to the Class AAAA Lower State meet. Junior sprinter Juwan Scott ran the 100-meter dash in 11.04 seconds, which was good enough for second place.

Also earning runner-up finishes were senior Dezmond Triplett and junior Tahjamon Stallworth. Triplett recorded a time of 23.36 in the 200-meter dash while Stallworth posted a throwing distance of 127-feet, 10-inches in the discus. Senior Joseph Buford was third in the long jump.

In the relays, the 400-meter group nabbed third (43.81), as did the 1600-meter unit (3:29.79).

Other athletes that participated but didn’t make it through included sprinters Dameer Robinson, Reimar Soriano, Marquise Stanley, Matthew Coardes and Joshua Gethers.

Shannon Summerset, Ronell Wallace, Carlton Blakely and Kevin DeGuzman ran the distance races, Brent Hicks was a jumper, and Jaquan Harper was a thrower.

On the girls’ side, sophomore Tyarra Gray was the lone individual placer, taking fourth in the 200-meter dash after crossing the line in 26.96 seconds.

Two of the three relay teams continued their seasons for an extra week as well. The 400-meter team posted a 50.42, putting them in second place, and the 1600-meter team came in third with a time of 4:18.15.

Two senior sprinters – Tanzania Williams and Donasia Holloway-Epps – wrapped up their careers while junior Chelsi Smalls and sophomores Sinai Turner and Taniah German took part in the shorter races as well.

Handling the distance events were junior Alexis McDade, sophomore Bianca Ramos and freshman Diana Steele. Juniors Mekeala Brown and SonJa Jones were used in the throwing events, and freshman Shanece Mitchell competed in the long and triple jumps.
