Old Mill boys finish first

January 16, 1994|By Rich Scherr | Rich Scherr,Contributing Writer

Old Mill coach Mike Marcus said he wasn't particularly pleased with the Patriots' performance at yesterday's Maryland National Guard Scholastic Games at the 5th Regiment Armory.

"We had some good performances," Marcus said, "but I really don't think we were sharp today."

The fact that his boys team won the meet and his girls team finished fourth did, however, help cushion the blow.

The defending state champion Patriots boys team had top-three finishes in four events to beat second-place Eleanor Roosevelt by 20 points for its second straight title. Oakland Mills took third, Atholton fourth and Duval fifth.

The Old Mill girls, who took second place in the states last year, also finished among the top three in four events, but came up 13 points short to champion Eleanor Roosevelt. Chesapeake finished tied for fifth place.

"I'm happy for the kids," Marcus said. "They've worked hard to get where they are."

The Patriots won the boys high jump (where Delvell Johnson jumped 6 feet 4) and the boys 1,500 (where Jason Reckner finished in 4 minutes, 15.2 seconds).

Other top finishes for the Old Mill boys were turned in by Kevin McKinney, who was second in the 55 --; Dante Hudson, fourth in the high hurdles; Eric Voss, sixth in the pole vault; and the 800 relay team, second.

In girls competition, Old Mill's Raina Domneys took second in the high hurdles and the Patriots' 800 and 3,200 relay teams each finished third.
