SeabrookWhale Branch has seen plenty of success in boys’ track and field over the last several years, but they took another step forward recently by holding off traditionally strong Woodland to claim the Region 6-AA championship.

The Warriors accrued 202 points while the Wolverines finished second with 168.

Numerous athletes placed high enough in their respective events to qualify for the Lower State track meet with the hopes of moving on to the state championships at Spring Valley High in Columbia on May 12-13.

Senior George Delaney took first place in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 19.16 seconds and also claimed second in the triple jump. The other winner was senior Cameron Wilson, who won the shot put with a mark of 51 feet. Wilson was runner-up in the discus.

Tariq Clark was another thrower that had a good afternoon, taking second in the shot put and fourth in the discus. Juniors Rasheem Reid (400-meter hurdles) and Richard Campbell (800-meter run) nabbed second place finishes as well.

Jaheem Hazel, a sophomore sprinter, placed third in the 100-meter dash while Roshard Campbell and Wesley Murphy earned the same distinction in the 400-meter and 1600-meter runs, respectively.

Eighth-grader Amere Cherry showed potential in several field events. He was third in the high jump, fourth in the long jump and fourth in the triple jump.

Kai Wilson earned a fourth-place finish in the high jump, and Dequan Griswold was fourth in the shot put.

Whale Branch also had a solid showing in all three relay events. The 3200-meter team crossed the finish line ahead of the rest of the field while the 400-meter and 1600-meter groups ended up second.

Other Warriors that participated in the region meet included Richard Parker, Sedeek Prather, Irvin Mulligan, Jaylen Reeves, Jamal Moultrie, Jalen Wright, Larry Fields, Jordan Kline, Marion Smalls, James Jackson, Nicholas Elam, Taqui Polite, Jaquan Fripp, Carlos Cave and Tyvonnie Lockley.
