Hollywood – A strong contingent of athletes from Baptist Hill’s track and field program converged on Spring Valley High School to compete in the Class A state track and field championships on May 11-12 at Spring Valley High School.

The athletes had to earn their spot in the state finals, surviving qualifying rounds in region 4-A and again through the Class A Lower State qualifying meet.

The school’s 4 x 100 relay team, from the girls side, advanced to the finals by winning the Lower State championship. They repeated their strong performance on the biggest stage, taking home the gold in the state finals.

Members of the winning relay were Alana Foster, Kayla Bennett, Rosalyn Bryant and Imani Singleton.

Bryant and Foster also qualified for the finals individually. Bryant, only a freshman, finished fifth overall in the high jump finals while Foster, just an eighth-grader, earned a bronze medal for her third-place finish in the triple jump finals.

The girls 4 x 400 relay team also reached the championship level and finished with a bronze medal performance as well. Bennett and Singleton were joined by Shontai Moultrie and Epiphany Perrigo on that relay team.

Moultrie qualified for the finals in the 400 meter run and took a silver medal with her second-place finish. Tijania McFadden qualified for the finals in the 400 meter hurdles, placing fourth overall.

Baptist Hill’s effort in the girls meet resulted in a fourth-place finish in the overall team standings of the Class A championships.

Tiquain Bright was the lone member of the boys program to survive qualifying. He competed in the state finals of the shot put competition in the Class A championship meet, finishing with a bronze medal.
