February 24, 1993|By Steven Kivinski | Steven Kivinski,Contributing Writer

Old Mill's boys team dominated the field events en route to its fourth state title at yesterday's Class 4A State Track and Field Championships at the Fifth Regiment Armory.

The Patriots' championship team tallied 50 points to hold off rallying Eleanor Roosevelt of Prince George's County (49).

Roosevelt's girls team had little difficulty claiming its fourth straight state title as it racked up 89 points to runner-up Old Mill's 56.

"We won this [boys] meet with the pole vault, high jump, shot put and the hurdles. We dominated the skill events," said Old Mill coach Ron Evans. "I thought our boys had a lock in the middle of the meet, but somehow Roosevelt snuck up on us."

Michelle Smith captured the gold medal in the shot put for the Patriots with a throw of 39 feet, and teammate Colleen Wade (37-1) took third.

Dulaney's Amanda White set a state indoor record in the girls 1,600 in a winning time of 5 minutes, 2.3 seconds before winning the 3,200 in 10:49.5. Pushing White the entire way in the 1,600 were runner-up Krissy Jost of Queen Anne's (5:06.3) and bronze medalist Robin Kloster of Glen Burnie (5:24.5).

Kristen Friz, Dishina Davis, Erin Cecil and White teamed up for Dulaney to win the gold in the girls 3,200 relay. The Lions' winning time of 9:55.8 was more than nine seconds faster than runner-up Chesapeake-AA.

Perry Hall's James Banach won the boys 55 -- in 6.51 seconds and Geoff Warren of Arundel captured first place in the boys 3,200 in 10:00.0.

Anne Arundel County athletes dominated the boys 1,600 with Arundel's John Nichols winning in 4:44, followed by Broadneck's Chris Williams (4:45.8), Chesapeake's Ryan Stevens (4:46.3) and Ron Pennington of Old Mill in fourth at 4:54.6.

Woodlawn's senior speedster Marlon Harris kicked it in down the stretch to win the boys 800 title. Harris' winning time of 2:02.9 staved off Friendly's Phillip Marshall and North County's Sam Lomax.
