Dorchester—You couldn’t have watched a more dominant performance than the one the Woodland girls’ track team put on at the Region 6-AA meet at Whale Branch High.

The Wolverines ran away with the conference championship, amassing a total of 302 points. Whale Branch, the runner-up, only had 132 points.

Several individuals had standout performances, including junior thrower Tedreauna Britt. She won the shot put (41-feet, 1-inch) and the discus (136-feet, 3-inches) and both distances were National Elite marks.

Woodland also had multiple event winners in sophomores Janiah Washington, Auyana Carson and Kyerra Gaddist. Washington took top honors in the 200-meter and 400-meter dash, Carson was victorious in the high jump and triple jump, and Gaddist crossed the finish line first in the 100-meter and 400-meter hurdles. Carson added a second-place finish in the long jump as well.

Sommer Knight, one of the few seniors on the team, cleared the tallest height in the pole vault. She also was second in the 100-meter dash and third in the 200-meters.

Junior Jonnae Delee was the only individual to place in the top four in four separate events. She was second in both the triple and high jumps, third in the long jump and fourth in the 100-meters.

The Wolverines picked up plenty of points in the throws, even discounting Britt’s performance. Kalesia Allen was runner-up in the shot put and discus while Joella James was third in the shot put and Tyeceanna Jamerson was third in the discus.

Other athletes that did well in the field events were freshman Tylieah Smith (third in high jump) and junior Sierra Boddorf (fourth in pole vault).

In the distance races, senior Latira James was second in the 800-meters. Sophomore Torrii Huseman was the runner-up in the 3200-meters and earned fourth in the 1600-meters. Essence Wooding, another sophomore, qualified for the Lower State meet in the 800m, 1600m, and 3200m.

Also moving on will be Mercedes Ravenell (second in 400m, fourth in 200m), Keyshaunta Allen (third in 400m), Olivia Rodd (third in 100m), and Teona Goodwin (second in 400m hurdles, fourth in 100m hurdles).

Woodland’s 1600m relay team crossed the finish line first while the 400m and 1600m relay teams came in second.
