Johnnie ForemanGilman The longtime Gilman coach did a good job in getting the Greyhounds to work together as a team this spring. It's a big reason they went undefeated in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and then won the conference championship meet.
The Greyhounds were not loaded with superstar talent. Jabulani Blyden was the only first-team All-Metro pick, but Foreman put the right people in the right places in the team's lineup.
They got points from all over the place. Their 1,600-meter relay team set a meet record (3 minutes, 23.13 seconds) in the championship meet, and the Greyhounds also won the 400 and 800 relays.
In addition, Gilman found points in sprints and field events throughout the season.
The Greyhounds won the title meet with 125 points, easily beating Archbishop Curley (89). Gilman had extra motivation because its indoor team lost to Mount St. Joseph in the championship meet after having won the regular-season crown.
"The kids wanted it," Foreman said. "They really wanted to win."
