Fullmer, Domneys lead honors All-County Track and Field

June 11, 1993|By Steven Kivinski | Steven Kivinski,Contributing Writer

South River senior Jason Fullmer has been bombarded with awards lately for his prowess this spring in the athletic and academic arenas.

The 6-foot-5 Virginia Tech-bound hurdler recently received the Distinguished Athlete Award from the U.S. Marine Corps and the Scholar Athlete Award from the Army Reserve.

Last week, Fullmer capped off his high school track and field career by repeating as state champion in the 110-meter high hurdles and the 300 intermediate hurdles.

Most athletes would savor an accomplishment of that magnitude, but the goal-oriented Fullmer was far from happy with his performance at the state meet.

"I wanted to break both the state [hurdle] records and that's been my goal all season. I wrote down my goals and I looked at them every day," said Fullmer, who was selected as The Baltimore Sun's 1993 Anne Arundel County Male Track Performer of the Year.

"The state titles didn't really mean anything to me. I wasn't going to settle for anything less than the record. That was my goal and that's what I worked for all season."

Fullmer would not be denied his place in the record books at the county meet as he set the standard in the 110 high hurdles with a time of 13.8 seconds and tied the county meet record in the 300 intermediate hurdles at 38.4.

"Jason was aiming for a little more than a state title so he was upset," said Seahawks first-year coach Scott Baker.

Old Mill junior Raina Domneys -- The Baltimore Sun's selection as Anne Arundel County Female Track Performer of the Year -- was in perfect sync as she emerged as a quadruple winner at the county and region meets and a double champion at the state meet.

Domneys captured first place in the 100 high hurdles, intermediate hurdles, triple jump and long jump at the county and region meets before winning the triple jump and long jump at states. Her leap of 38-7 in the triple jump at the county competition earned her not only a gold medal but also a No. 3 national ranking by Track & Field News.

"Raina is getting physically and mentally stronger each season," said Old Mill coach Ron Evans, this year's choice as the county's Track Coach of the Year after leading the girls team to its 13th consecutive county championship and the boys team to its fifth straight county and region crowns.

Evans has had a chance to share in the successes of many athletes in his 17 years at the helm of the Patriots and he dismisses the notion that his teams' successes are a result of its high turnout.

"I surround myself with good coaches and together we try to PTC collect kids and hold onto them long enough for them to become successful," he said.
