Crawford Dual Meet 15 April 2004


In a close girls track meet last Thursday it was a dual between Coronado’s speed and Crawford’s depth. In the end the Islanders prevailed by a score of 72-55 after winning all of the running events and yielding most of the 2nd and 3rd place points. Beth Wittry, Ashley Houston, Megan Mushovic and Nila Heurtelou started the day with a come-from-behind victory in the 4x100 as Heurtelow ran down the Colts’ anchor in the stretch. She also won both the 100 in 12.8 and the 200 in 26.7. Wittry also won the 400 in 61.2 and the triple jump with 32 feet 8 inches. Mushovic has become the girl’s Swiss Army Knife. She also placed 2nd in the triple jump with 31-9, 2nd in the discus throw and 3rd in the high jump. Houston also picked up the 3rd place points in the long jump. Freshman Sara Player had a good day with wins in the high jump (4-10) the 100 meter hurdles (18.0) and the 300 meter hurdles (53.0). Katherine Wingert and Caitlin Alley placed first and third in both the 1600 meter and 800 meter runs with times of 5:33 and 2:30.3 for Wingert and 5:47 and 2:39 for Alley. In the 3200 meter run Alley and Wingert placed 1-2 in that order. Alexis Castro added 4 points with 2nd in the shot put and 3rd in the discus. The boys were outmatched against last year’s harbor champions and lost by the score of 37-90. However there were a few good individual performances. The most impressive was Reid McLean’s win in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 42.0. He also won the long jump with 20 feet 4 inches and anchored the most exciting race of the day, the boys 4x400, by running down the Crawford anchor in the stretch while clocking a 50.1 split on Coronado’s dirt track. Blake Gory placed 3rd in both the 1600 and 3200 meter runs with PR’s of 5:04 and 11:58.
