HS T&F: Eagles sweep titles at Marwin Kline Invitational

Beaufort High’s track and field team swept the boys and girls team titles and brought home eight individual titles and swept the boys relays at the Marwin Kline Invitational at Whale Branch on Saturday. May River also had a strong showing, finishing second in the girls standings and fourth in the boys ranks with five individual golds and two more in the girls relays

Jayla Daise won the discus and shot put for two of the Eagles’ six individual titles and placed second in the javelin as the BHS girls racked up 147.5 points to easily outpace runner-up May River (119) and Whale Branch (82). Charlize Antia won the 800m and was runner-up in the 1,600, and Anna Lyles also made the podium twice, winning the pole vault and placing third in the 400 hurdles. Yzeult Antia (3200m) and Keasia Walker (long jump) also won gold for the Eagles. 

AnnaDora Hale was brilliant in the hurdles for May River, winning the 100m hurdles and taking silver in the 400m hurdles, while Anya Arroyo won the 1,600 and took bronze in the 800, and Macey Dowe won the javelin. The Sharks also won the 4×400 and 4×800 relays. 

The third-place Warriors did not have a champ, but Grace Bing was second in the 100m hurdles and Whale Branch was runner-up in the 4×100 relay. Colleton County’s Shandi Brown took a break from leading off for the softball team to win the 100m and pace the Cougars to the 4×100 relay gold.

Beaufort’s boys swept the relays and had a pair of individual champs in Charlie Bennett (800m) and Alvin Wilson (discus) to compile 134 points and edge Wade Hampton (120.5) with Hilton Head High (88) in third. Zyrin Odom fell short of gold but made the podium twice, finishing second in the 200m and third in the long jump, and Wilson also snagged third in the shot put. 

Nash Mills provided another bright spot for the Eagles with a bronze in the 1,600 as he continues to work his way back from injuries suffered in a serious car accident last summer. 

Fareed Abdullah blazed the trail for the May River boys, winning the 100m and 200m, while Noah Wasserman found the podium twice with silver in the 1,600 and bronze in the 800. The host Warriors had one champion with Virginia Tech football signee Xavier Chaplin winning the shot put.
