Knights Win 18 Events

131 - 20 Victory Over Peoria High School 

 

    Richwoods won 18 of the 19 events contested, losing only the shotput, and claimed a 131-20 victory over the visitors from Peoria High School. With the win, the Knights now have extended their dual meet streak to 42.

    The Knights were led by Captain Barbara Hale's 3 individual wins joined by her leadoff leg of a victorious relay. Hale won both sand jumps with leaps of 15' 1" in the long and 30' 8" in the triple. On the track she claimed the 200 meter dash in :27.3 and opened the meet with a quality first leg in the Medley Relay. The Medley ran an impressive 1:57.7 despite less than perfect baton work.

        Co-Captain Laura Unes and Brittney Wallace also can brag of 4 win days, Unes in the 400 meter dash (:66.6), Medley Relay (1:57.7), 4x100 (:52.1) and 4x400 (4:43.6), Wallace in the 100 Hurdles (:17.7), 300 Hurdles (:55.7), and 4x400.

    The Knights also had triple winners in Alisha Smith ( 100  meter dash - :12.3,  Medley, and 4x100) and Freshman Deja Davis ( Medley Relay, 4x200, and 4x400).

    In an historical outing in the pole vault, the Knights for the first time had 3 competitors clear the bar - Shauna Wills, whose 7' 6" vault was a winner, Carrie Knapp, whose 6' 0" effort edged Dianna He's identical height on misses for 3rd.
