Four blazers qualify at regional meet
Four Blazers qualified for the state track meet after the 4A West regional meet held May 17 and 18 at Churchill. Senior Queen Momo and juniors Muhammad Roberson, Ashlyn Sinclair and Halsey Sinclair all met the time or distance requirements necessary to advance in their respective events.
Halsey Sinclair placed first in the mile with a time of 5:07, first in the two mile in 11:08 and second in the 800 meter in 2:18. Her times were well below the requirements — as much as 40 seconds faster than the time limit in the two mile. "Halsey did exceptional," said head coach Heather Amell. "I anticipate her doing really well at states."
Ashlyn Sinclair qualified for the state meet by placing second in the mile with a time of 5:13. Muhammad Roberson just barely met the high jump height of five feet, 11 inches, jumping exactly that distance. A second Blazer also qualified through field events. Queen Momo captured third, with a jump of 15 feet, nine inches.
The state meet will be held at Morgan State University on May 26 and 27.
