C.H. Flow­ers girls, Oxon Hill boys cap­ture Prince Ge­orge’s County crowns

The Washington Post Sunday - - BASEBALL - BY DAN ROTH dan.roth@wash­post.com

C.H. Flow­ers se­nior Pharist O’Neal en­tered the last day of her fi­nal Prince Ge­orge’s County Cham­pi­onships on Satur­day de­ter­mined to have no re­grets or room for se­cond-guess­ing.

“I want to look back at this mo­ment and re­mem­ber it for a life­time and know that I did my best,” O’Neal said.

O’Neal won the 100 in 12.23 sec­onds, clocked a per­sonal best to win the 200 in 24.6 and ran as part of C.H. Flow­ers’s first-place 4x100 (48.48) and 4x200 (1:41.51) re­lay teams to power the Jaguars to their se­cond straight county ti­tle with 187 points on their home track in Lan­dover.

Fel­low se­nior Collese Da­ley, mean­while, placed se­cond in both the 100 and 200, while run­ning on the same re­lay teams as O’Neal. Sopho­more De­jah Grant was a dou­ble win­ner in the 400 (58.17) and 300 hur­dles (46.86).

The Jaguars were fol­lowed by Bowie (81 points) and Eleanor Roo­sevelt (72).

On the boys’ side, Aaron Robin­son, Gary Ross and Daniel Ge­orge led Oxon Hill to its se­cond straight county ti­tle with 147 points, ahead of Suit­land (55) and Park­dale (53).

A se­nior still look­ing for the right col­lege of­fer, Robin­son bolted to vic­tory in the 200 (21.97) and 400 (48.08). He also ran on the Clip­pers’ ti­tle-win­ning 4x200 (1:28.96) and 4x800 (7:54.61) re­lay teams.

Ge­orge, a ju­nior, burst out of the blocks in the 300 hur­dles and never looked back as he crossed in 37.99, the state’s fastest time this sea­son. One of the area’s top foot­ball re­cruits, the 6-foot-2 wide re­ceiver takes his work on the track just as se­ri­ously.

“I’ve lost one 300 hur­dles race, and that was at states last year,” Ge­orge said. “I don’t plan on los­ing again.”

Ross, mean­while, won the 800 in 1:56.28 and ran the an­chor leg of the 4x800.

Bullis boys win IAC

Af­ter an er­ror in the pole vault scor­ing led to a change in the fi­nal team stand­ings at last year’s In­ter­state Ath­letic Con­fer­ence Cham­pi­onships, the ti­tle that the Bullis boys thought they had won in­stead went to St. Al­bans. The episode served as sea­son-long mo­ti­va­tion for the Bull­dogs.

“We re­ally wanted to leave no doubt that we’re the real IAC cham­pi­ons” said se­nior Der­rick Tan­gelo, who swept the shot put (46 feet 10 inches) and dis­cus throw (105-0) as Bullis left noth­ing to chance at Lan­don, amass­ing 227 points. St. Al­bans (97) placed se­cond, and Ge­orge­town Prep (57) came in third.

Bullis’s Eric Allen Jr. swept the short sprints by clock­ing 10.51 100 and 21.71 in the 200.

Lan­don’s Wes­ley Feld­man show­cased a strong kick in the 1,600 to win in 4:34.9 and came back shortly af­ter­ward to win the 3,200 in 10:23.82.

St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes ju­nior Jor­dan Walker claimed ti­tles in the high (6-4) and long (23-7.75) jumps . . . .

The Bullis girls posted an equally im­pres­sive win with 224 points at the In­de­pen­dent School League Cham­pi­onships. Holton Arms, which hosted the meet, came in se­cond with 77.2 points. Ge­orge­town Day fin­ished third with 63.2. Cierra Pyles swept the hor­i­zon­tal jumps for the Bull­dogs with a 36-7 triple and 18-61/2 long.

The Po­tomac School won the Mid-At­lantic Ath­letic Con­fer­ence Cham­pi­onships with 149 points, fol­lowed by Ge­orge­town Day (132) and St. Andrew’s (67).
