ANNAPOLIS -- Mattie Cymek of Chesapeake had the state's second-best all-time effort in the girls discus, while Old Mill's boys and girls edged Meade in their yearly battles for the top spots during yesterday's Anne Arundel County track and field championships.
Cymek broke the only meet record when her 142-foot, 10-inch discus throw bettered by an even 21 feet the mark set by Severna Park's Lisa Moore in 1978. Statewide, Cymek's toss ranks second to the 147-1 of Westminster's Shirl Dorsey in 1985.
Brian Evans and Rocky McMillan each won two events to lead Old Mill's boys over Meade, 135-132. The Patriots girls defeated the runner-up Mustangs, 119-110.
"I thought we were pretty well set up to win the girls . . . but sometimes things just don't work out," said Meade coach Jay Cuthbert. That is not all that did not work out for the Mustangs, however.
Cuthbert's boys were at first credited with a 132-129 edge over Old Mill. But last night, a scoring error was detected -- six points for Scott Boetig's third-place finish in the 3,200-meter run were credited to Severna Park -- and the team scores were readjusted.
"I have mixed emotions. Although I feel sorry for Meade's kids when they find out, we're not ashamed to take it," said Old Mill coach Ron Evans. "We made some mistakes ourselves, but we still had a pretty good day."
Nobody had a better day overall than North County's Adrienne McCray, who was a triple winner (long jump, 400 -- and 300 hurdles). The meet was otherwise marked by the number of double winners.
In addition to McMillan (110 and 300 hurdles) and Evans (shot put and discus), Glen Burnie's Alphonso Generette won the 100 and 200 --es and Severna Park's Gerald Cager took the triple jump and high jump.
Among the girls, Cymek won the shot put in addition to the discus. Other double winners were South River's Kim Fullmer (high jump and 100 hurdles), Glen Burnie's Tamicka Maynard (100 and 200 --es) and Severna Park's Fran Mackney (1,600 and 3,200 runs).
