Hollywood – Though low in overall numbers, the Baptist Hill track and field program does not shy away when it comes to competing against bigger schools in meets around the Lowcountry.

The program recently competed in a big meet at Wando High School with several of the area’s AAAAA programs also competing. The competitive nature of the schedule will help Baptist Hill’s athletes prepare for the state meet in May.

On the boys team, one of the top sprinters is junior Tiquain Bright, who competes in the 100 and 200 meter sprints. He is tops on the team in the 100 and finished fourth overall in the 200 at Wando.

Junior Terrance Simmons is the top 200-meter sprinter finishing second at the Wando meet with a time of 24.75 seconds. Simmons also excels in the long jump, winning that event at the Wando meet with a jump of 20 feet and one-half inch.

Seventh-grader Rickey Middleton has been the team’s top performer in the 400-meter run, posting his best time of 1:16.

Freshman Xavieon Brown is the top hurdler, with a season-best time of 1:18 in the 400-meter hurdles.

Other sprinters of note to keep an eye on this spring include senior Donnell Gathers and freshman Harry Williams. Both compete in the 100 and 200-meter events.

The girls team finished fifth in the Class A state meet last season and look to improve that standing this spring.

Seventh-grader Takiah Nottage has been strong in the sprints early on, posting the best time on the team in the 100-meter dash at 13.7 seconds. Mahogany Youngblood is also competing well in the 100 and 200.

Freshman Alana Foster is the best overall athlete on the team. Foster is tops in the 200 meter sprint and also is a state title contender in the triple jump. Foster tripled 31 feet and one-half inch, finishing third, at the Wando meet.

Freshman Shontai Moultrie posted a time of 1:09 in the 400, good for fifth-place at the Wando meet. Freshman Angel Bocanera and freshman Imani Singleton also compete in the 400.

 Senior Tyanna Murray has been the top runner in the 800 meter run and sophomore Zynasia Lance is tops in the long jump.
