April 29, 1999|By Rick Belz | Rick Belz,SUN STAFF

Oakland Mills' Kyle Farmer came to yesterday's quad meet at River Hill wanting to run a fast time. He did, posting his best 100-meter run of the season at 10.67 seconds.

He and teammate Nick Fambro led the Scorpions boys to victory over runner-up Mount Hebron, 96-83 1/2. River Hill was third (68 1/2) and Glenelg was fourth (22).

In the final non-invitational or relay competition before the county championships in two weeks, Mount Hebron finished first among the girls teams, topping runner-up Oakland Mills, 82 1/2-78 1/2. Glenelg was third with 66 1/2 and River Hill fourth, 46 1/2.

"I wanted to get used to the curves, because the county championships are going to be here," Fambro said. "I slipped getting out of the blocks and thought I ran over 11 [seconds]. If I can get my starts down, I can go 10.4."

Farmer also won the 200 in 22.5, the 400 in 49.83 and ran a 50.7-second anchor leg on the winning 1,600 relay team.

Fambro won the 100 hurdles in 15.2, the 300 hurdles in 42.4, the shot put at 42 feet, 2 inches, and the discus at 130-6.

Mount Hebron's Bobby Bergin was another outstanding performer, winning all three jumps: triple jump (40-2 1/2); long jump (18-4 3/4), and high jump (6-4).

"I wanted to go 6-6, so I was a little disappointed in my high jump," Bergin said.

Mount Hebron coach Kevin Smith, hoping his team will be a factor in the county meet, was pleased with his team's performance -- wins in the 3,200, 800 and 400 relays.

"The jumps were outstanding and the 4x800 relay solid," he said. "We're just getting ready for counties."

River Hill's Mike Styczynski turned in a personal-best performance in winning the 3,200 in 9: 52, a school record. Teammate Steve Chu won the 1,600 in 4: 34.

To win the girls competition, Mount Hebron showed a lot of balance. The Vikings won only four events (the 1,600 and 3,200 relays, triple jump and high jump) but placed 23 other times. The meet was scored with six points for first, four points for second, three points for third, two points for fourth and one point for fifth.

Mia Molfino won the triple jump at 29-1 for the Vikings, and Christina Fredricks won the high jump at 4-7.

"This is the first time that Mount Hebron girls have won a quad meet in a long time, so it was a good bus ride home," said Vikings girls coach Kevin George. "The girls were excited."

Other double winners: Danielle Stoddart of Oakland Mills won the 400 run and 300 hurdles; River Hill's Courtney Savoy won the shot and discus.

Glenelg's Lori Tvarkunas won the pole vault (10-6).
