PJS Honor RollKnights Rule Sprints at Honor Roll Meet

May 21, 2013
The Knights were simply untouchable at the 35th running of the Journal Star/CEFCU Honor Roll Meet. Richwoods initially broke into the win column in the 4x100 Relay in spectacular fashion with Brenna Detra, Kourtney Marks, Crishawna Nash and LaDaisha Steen-Yates setting a school record of :48.51.
In very short order the Knights claimed the gold in the 100 Hurdles when Detra ran :14.80 and won the event by over a second. The ensuing event, the 100 Dash, saw Steen-Yates and Marks go first and second at :12.50 and :12.55 respectively.
When the 4x200 took to the track minutes later, once again Richwoods was significantly better than the field when Kayvance Haywood and Tashawna Nash joined Marks and Steen-Yates for a full second victory margin running 1:45.28.
Next up for Richwoods was perhaps the most certain race of the night with Detra running her signature event the 300 Hurdles. Well focused Detra destroyed the meet record runnig a speedy :43.47 despite uncharacteristically clipping several hurdles.
As the evening drew toward its end the Knights had set the stage to seize a very unusual opportunity by having three participants in the 200 Dash, and seize the moment they did as the Knights swept the event with Detra finishing first with a meet record :24.62, followed by Steen-Yates at :25.49 for second and Marks at :25.79 for third.
Senior Jazmyn Jackson closed out her career with a 5th place medal in the discus. While Richwoods distance runners Danie Vidal and Morgan Eberle finished 8th and 9th in the 3200 Run - Complete Results -

Not Quite...

April 20, 2013 - The Knights traveled to the Harold Jester Invitational hosted by  Champaign Central (held at Centennial) and had one of those meets..."not quite good" but "not quite bad" either.
The Knights departed with a meet record when Brenna Detra clocked a :57.80 in the 400m dash. Unfortunately they left another on the table when Detra joined Kourtney Marks, Kayvance Haywood and LaDaisha Steen-Yates in the 4x100 and their :49.08 which was under the previous meet record could only produce a second place finish to Danville's :48.88 in a race which the Knights had a very significant lead dissipate when they sufferred some confusion as to the proper location of the hand-off zone and came to a virtual complete stop mid-race.
In all Richwoods finished 3rd in Varsity level competition. Other highlights included Steen-Yates and Marks finishing 1-2 in the 100 as well as Detra and Steen-Yates taking 1-3 in the 200 -
