The Milford Mill Academy boys varsity team had a big day at the Baltimore County Track & Field championship meet last Saturday. And the Pikesville JV boys didn’t fare badly either.
The Pikesville JV finished second in the team competition. The Panthers ended up with 98 points, just short of victorious Hereford and its 102 points.
Milford Mill’s varsity was led by Kashief Burton and his victories in the hurdle races. Burton captured the 110-meter hurdles and the 300-meter hurdles.
Aleric Coker captured the 800 for Milford Mill, which also got a victory in the 400 relay. The Millers also took third in the 800 and 1,600 relays.
Michael Jones and Marquis Thornton gave the Millers second-place finishes that proved crucial. Jones took second in the long jump while Thornton did the same in the triple jump. The Millers needed all of those points since they won the title by just one point.
The Pikesville JV also got a lot of points from a variety of spots in their line-up, doing especially well in the sprints and relays.
The Panthers won the 400 and 1,600 relays and took second in the 800 relay. That’s 28 points in the relays alone.
Pikesville also got wins from Daniel Lewis (triple jump), Max Sterling (1,600) and Quadir Rhoe (400).
Rhoe also finished second in the 100, and Lewis did the same in the 300 hurdles. Sterling helped with his fifth-place effort in the 3,200. C.J. Smalley (fourth) and Terrell Flanigan (sixth) gave the Panthers points in the 100.
All of the public school varsity teams go to a variety of regional meets this week before the state meet at the end of next week.
That takes place over a three-day period at Morgan State beginning on Thursday, May 24.
