We want to congratulate the McDonough Rams Men and Women’s Track teams for their performances at a Rainy State Regional Final Track Meet over the weekend. This year McDonough will be sending 7 runners and 2 relays to the Maryland State Track and Field Championships at Morgan State University.
From the women’s side, Freshman Kavina McDonald and Rowan Buzo qualified in the 1600m and the 3200m building on their successful Indoor State Final appearances. These Freshman are returning to the Outdoor Championship, in strong fashion as Buzo PR’s in each of her 3 events over the weekend. These ladies have definitely saved their best for last.
Breanna Perry is finishing her career in grand form as the Morehead State commit will be representing the Rams in the 100m dash and the 400m. Junior Cheyenne Johnson qualified for the State Championship in the 800m run. Cheyenne will also be running the 4×200 (with Tamia Webb, Alliyah Ottley and Perry) as well as the 4x100m relays at the State Championship. Cheyenne impressively helped her team of Perry, Webb and Ottley take the Silver Medal in the 4×100 directly after qualifying in the 800m run.
Ottley won the Silver medal in the 100m hurdles along with her male counterpart and surprise State Finalist Walter Fuentes. In only his 3rd time competing in the 300 meter hurdles, Fuentes roared past 5 competitors over the last 150 meters to also grab the Silver Medal and qualify for the State Championship.
Senior Avaughn Holley (Shepard University) will finish his high school track career competing in the High Jump after being disqualified in the 100m dash in an extremely questionable and appealed false start. Holley won the High Jump this past Monday.
Great things are happening with the Rams Track Team, Any athletes interested in hard work and success; come join the movement.
