The indoor track team performed well in the MCPS Developmental meet held on Dec. 13. Although official times were not taken and the teams were not ranked, the Blazers competed in many events to prepare for the first timed meet, the Montgomery Invitational, on Jan. 10.

Blair competed in several different distances, which includes the 55 meters, 300m, 800m, 4x800m, one-mile and the two-mile races.

Representing Blair in the 55m were juniors Narique Dixon and Michael Wright, seniors Sekou Kourouma, James Dwight and Nicole Gray, and freshman Aaron Townsend. Dixon and Kourouma also competed in the 300m.

Freshmen Ashlyn Sinclair and Keianna Dixon both ran the 800m and the one-mile. Junior Alan Bateman and senior Esey Kidane also ran the one-mile. Long-distance runners included seniors Matt Sheldon and Kidane, along with junior Anthony Glynn on the 4x800m.

Lewin did not believe any one runner stood out in the meet but said Sinclair performed well in her two races. "Ashlyn's times were pretty decent," said Lewin.

Although Lewin admits that this meet does not paint him an accurate picture of what the team needs to do to improve, Lewin is very optimistic about the team's future meets. "Everyone's coming along well," he said.
