Boys' Track Wins Centennial Cup Meet While Girls' Also Dominate

Mercerburg's track & field teams hosted Kiski School for the Centennial Cup competition on the boys' side while the girls' ran against local teams from Maryland School for the Deaf and St. Maria Goretti. Both teams put on an impressive display in their last meet on the Curran Track.

The Storm boys' outscored Kiski 81-33 with MSD and Goretti also fielding non-scoring boys' teams. Outstanding performers included Charlie Xu '26, who won the 100M, 200M, and Long Jump and placed second in the 400M. He also broke into the school's top 10 list for the 100M dash with a time of 10.83 seconds. Winston Watkins '25 was a double winner in the 800M and 1600M while Bryce Brown '24 (3200M), Haris Yayaha '24 (300M Hurdles), Adrian Rios '25 (Javelin), and Chris Ametepe '25 (High Jump) also won events. Ametepe added a second place in the javelin.

The girls won virtually every event led by triple winners Erika Tsowah '24 (Long Jump, Triple Jump, 400M) and Madison Goodhart '24 (Discus, Javelin, 800M). Other winners were Nia Henley '24 (100M), Adrienne Howard '26 (200M), Lilly Killinger '26 (300M Hurdles), Lilly Crounse '25 (High Jump), Susanna Huang '27 (1600M), Anne Sehon '25 (3200M), and Marlo Williams '25, who won both the shot put and 100M Hurdles.

"It was actually a bit warm for a May 1 track meet at Mercersburg," said head coach Nikki Walker, "but the team performed very well. Everyone seems to be peaking at the right time."

Mercersburg will travel to the Hill School for a meet this Saturday, May 4 at 2 pm  and then to Lawrenceville for the MAPL meet on May 11.
