Wittstadt wins two individual events and anchors two victorious relays
With no MIAA Championship meet this season due to COVID-19 protocols, two undefeated track & field teams, Calvert Hall and Gilman, faced off on Friday afternoon with a league championship on the line.
When the final results were tallied up, Gilman came out on top 89-57 victory, to win their fourth consecutive title. The Greyhounds have now won or shared a piece of 11 of the last 12 regular season MIAA titles, with the only exception coming in 2016 when Mount St. Joseph won the regular season.
Gilman swept all four relays. Senior Beck Wittstadt had an impressive day winning the 1600 and 800 and anchoring the 4×800 and 4×400 teams to victory. Nigel Parker, Rayuan Lane, and Donovon Young officially put the points over the threshold when they swept the 200, and Josh Green had a personal best long jump of 22 feet.
Calvert Hall’s Jason Holmes-Williams scored a big win in the 110 hurdles, and Garik Pozeki won the shot put and discus. Gilman will conclude its season against arch-rival McDonogh next week as Calvert Hall also meets their historical adversary Loyola.
